3-Days in Quito and 7-Night Galapagos Islands Cruise Oct 31-Nov 10, 2018

Onboard the Silversea Silver Galapagos

The Galapagos Islands are home to the only active volcanoes in the archipelago and are known both for their spectacular volcanic landscapes as well as penguin spotting: over 95% of the Galapagos Penguins live in these islands.

Go snorkeling or take a walk along the beach to look for the playful Galapagos Penguin, perched on a rock or zooming underwater. One of the most pristine islands in the world, Fernandina hosts an impressive array of wildlife including sea lions, colourful Sally Lightfoot crabs and the rare endemic Flightless Cormorant. As you travel along the coast, you may find many other creatures that shelter amid the red and white mangroves: eagle rays, marine turtles, Brown Pelicans and resting Cattle Egrets. Kayaking through the turquoise waters here is a true pleasure, inviting a sense of peaceful solitude and an invigorating feeling of connection to nature.
Floreana has been luring visitors since the 18th century when whalers hunted the island for tortoises and pirates sought shelter in its caves. Sailors established a rustic mailing system here: a barrel nailed to a pole where they would drop letters hoping they would be delivered by other mariners sailing home. You can continue the tradition if you choose. Then take a walk along the lovely beach, or hike through fragrant forests of palo santo “Incense” trees.
