What more could you ask for?

This was an extremely comfortable cruise through the Galapagos Islands. The wildlife was amazing, from sea turtles, sea lions, and an array of birds I never even knew existed in Genovesa. Daily diving to experience different forms of sea life; Excellent food and service; The boat is moved at nights while you sleep, so you wake up in a new port every time. That was a nice touch.
