It was in the remote and unspoiled Galapagos Islands, where more than half of the mammals, birds, reptiles and insects are endemic, that Charles Darwin made discoveries that altered the course of history and human understanding of evolution. As you snorkel or scuba dive into the ocean depths in the Galapagos, you’re a visitor in a marine world more diverse than any other place on earth. See whales, sharks, sea turtles, dolphins, seals, exotic fish and reptiles, and so much more. The Galapagos is one of the only places where pelagic species — species that live in remote areas of seas, such as tuna, golden rays, spotted eagle rays, and hammerhead sharks — can be seen close to shore.
