The fabled Galapagos Islands, home of the giant tortoise, is your destination for this once-in-a-lifetime adventure.

Blue-footed boobies and frigatebirds indulge in courtship activities at arm' length. Marine iguanas patiently pose on rocks at water's edge. It's not uncommon for frigatebirds to hitch a ride on the ship's railing as pods of bottle-nosed dolphins swim playfully alongside.

Photograph friendly sea lions swimming next to you as you snorkel the tropical waters of this island paradise. Nazca boobies, pink flamingos, flightless cormorants, penguins, albatross, frigatebirds, land iguanas, lava lizards, and the colorful Sally lightfoot crabs -- the list of exotic species is practically endless.

Our home during this adventure will be the M/Y Seaman (or similar boat), a 75-foot motor yacht with all the amenities including a fully air-conditioned carpeted interior, comfortable lounge with large panoramic windows, and last but not least, baths with hot showers. The gallery serves fine meals featuring Ecuadorian cuisine. Her sun deck is both shaded and open -- perfect for lounging after a hard day photographing the archipelago's friendly wildlife.
