Galápagos: Wildlife Wonderland

Introducing Earth Journeys... Created by Tauck and BBC Earth

2015 Prices From $4,483 plus on-tour air for 8 Days - Tauck Bridges

New for 2015 – You and your family have an opportunity to discover wildlife found nowhere else in the world with Tauck and BBC Earth! Join us for an Earth Journeys family travel experience highlighted by BBC Earth on-tour films and a specialist wildlife filming kit. Set sail for amazing tropical islands, truly a land that time forgot, on Tauck Bridges' family Galápagos tour that features a four-night cruise aboard M / V Santa Cruz. A treasure trove of unique creatures live below the ocean's surface, and with the aid of a Go Pro camera you can capture what can't be seen from above. Have you ever seen birds wearing bright red or blue "shoes"? You will during this eco-cruise because the Galápagos is one of their favorite places to kick up their heels. How about prehistoric-looking iguanas? Or penguins and sea lions so friendly that they might swim right alongside you in brilliant blue water? Even the crabs are different here, with their bright red and yellow shells that provide quite a contrast to the black-lava rocks of these volcanic islands. Parabolic microphones bring the voices of nature to your ears... learn from Galápagos naturalists who travel with you... take walks on lave terrains... travel ashore via pangas... swim and snorkel... and spend two nights in colonial Quito.

The Tauck Difference

To say that we had the trip of our lives would be an understatement. The kids are now sharing all the pictures and stories with their neighborhood friends of sharks, sea lions, boobies, barracudas, penguins, sea turtles, playing tag on the lower level of the ship, etc. I don’t think it would have been possible to have a better vacation. You and the rest of your team are VERY good at what you do!! Thank you for a remarkable vacation filled with great memories.
