Galapagos: Endemic | 8 days luxury
Enjoy the Enchanted Islands on the luxury catamaran, the M/C Endemic. Hike trails through cacti looking for land iguanas on Dragon Hill. Snorkel at some of the best spots in the Galapagos; around the underwater volcanic crater of Devils' Crown and Osborn Islet where you may get to see some hammerhead sharks. On Española you will be able to see the Galapagos Albatross (Apr-Dec). Enjoy dinghy rides through mangroves and tranquil waters always keeping an eye out for the amazing wildlife, such as rays, turtles, sharks etc. Learn more about the human history on Floreana and maybe post or pick up a post card at Post Office Bay. On Santa Fe and South Plaza Island the land iguanas laze in the sun and wait for a prickly cactus pear to drop. Bartolome is home to the iconic Pinnacle Rock but also a great snorkeling spot, with a bit of luck you may see some Galapagos penguins. On Chinese Hat you walk across the lava tubes and learn more about volcanic geology. No Galapagos Islands visit would be complete without meeting blue-footed boobies, land iguanas and frigate birds; a great place to see them is on North Seymour Island. The Charles Darwin Breeding Center is the best place to learn more about the habitat of the Giant Galapagos tortoises.
While you are on board the modern and elegant M/C Endemic, you can enjoy the ample space on the sun terrace and observation platform, take a dip in the Jacuzzi and spot wildlife while sitting on your balcony.
