Galapagos Is A Great Place To Greet The New Year

lizard-2113966_1920-5
The New Year is a fresh start, a perfect time to set the course for the year to come. What better way to do that than cruising the iconic Galapagos Islands, onboard a luxury yacht? January is the perfect time to see green sea turtles nesting, while Espanola's marine iguanas turn a brilliant red to attract mates as the courtship period gets into full swing for marine and the giant land iguanas!  The water is calm and warmer, the holiday crowds have returned home, the world - and year - are reborn!   Really, wouldn't you rather be playing snorkel-tag with sea lions than shoveling snow? Call us today to snag the best cabins! Your friendly Galapagos expert, Sherry

These Islands Humble Me

These Islands Humble Me
It’s that time of year to look back, reflect on where we’ve been, what the year brought, what lies ahead. This past Spring, I spent two-plus weeks between the Galapagos Islands onboard the M/Y Eric with a number of other adventure travel professionals and journalists, then onto Ecuador’s Yasuni Reserve in the Amazon watershed.

The simplicity and clarity of life, carried on without human intervention (or at least as much as possible in today’s world) is both exhilarating and frightening…what if we screw it up?? Where can we find another Galapagos, a place this unaffected by…US? Sure, there are a few population settlements there, and the human presence is growing. But most of the outer islands maintain that magical isolation, the animals are still unafraid of us bipedal...

How to Choose an Alaska Cruise

How to Choose an Alaska Cruise
Last week I spoke to somebody who was trying to figure out the best way to have his family see Alaska. He was trying to decide between a Disney Cruise and a cruise on the Wilderness Discoverer . Made me think about the difference between large ship vs. small ship cruising. In many travel circles cruising in general has a bad rap. “It’s all about the boat, not where you’re going!” and with the larger ships for the most part that’s true. But it’s not true on a small ship. Here are some differences between our Alaska cruises and a conventional cruise: Our Alaska cruise itineraries do not call on ports, but rather spend time in wilderness areas. Other than the starting and ending point, you will see no recognizable town names on one of our itineraries. There are no “days at sea”. That means that on an 8 day voyage you...
