ACTIVITIES ON THE M/V GALAPAGOS LEGEND

The main activities include swimming with friendly sea lions, penguins, stingrays and if feeling adventurous snorkel with white tipped and hammerhead sharks, giant starfish and the green Pacific turtle.  Slide in one of our kayaks through blue waters to get even closer to the endemic nature, and become one with the scenery.  Experiences are available for all types of explorers if you do not feel like getting wet and you do not want to miss the underwater biodiversity of the islands; a glass bottom boat ride is available to make you feel comfortable and dry while you extend your knowledge about the marine life.  While riding on the bottom glass boat, be amazed by the endemic birds that glide through the one-of-a-kind skies and can be seen in every corner.

In addition to being able to explore the underwater statuary, there are 2 daily land excursions where you can explore the islands, walk alongside the world renowned giant turtles, explore volcanic formations and see with your own eyes the stunning colors of the land iguanas.

Main Activities:

  • 2 guided visits by a multilingual, as per Galapagos National Park, naturalist guide.
  • Snorkeling activities
  • Glass bottom boat
  • Swimming
  • Kayaking
  • Scuba Diving options available upon request

Guides are hand-picked to represent the Go Galapagos brand at its best.  All naturalist guides go through extensive training, both from the Galapagos National Park and in-house.   Our guides have years of working experience with history, wildlife and offer a multilingual service in English and Spanish, however, additional languages are available upon request. They will be ready to explain and satisfy your curiosity, thus ensuring that you will become an explorer at heart.

Enjoy in total we offer a wide selection of itineraries that cover the Archipelago, from 3, 4, 7, 10 and up to 14 nights cruising in complete comfort and style. Each island in the archipelago is unique in its own way, thus offering a different experience at all times.  Every day wake up to a good morning and sail through paradisiacal waters that will stun you with their landscape.  The islands are the result of the volcanic activity that teamed up with the wildlife leading to the birth of the natural heaven that it is today.

The islands and the M/V Galapagos Legend experience offer activities to a public of all ages, and it is a destination that calls younger generations that are interested in water and land activities.  Such activities involve a close encounter with the spectacular and unique nature composed of fearless animals.   Families are delighted with a memorable cruise trip; little ones have a great time while enjoying the magic of the Enchanted Islands.  Top notch experiences and itineraries are offered.

Be embraced by the islands that were the inspiration of Darwin on his trip in the H.M.S Beagle.  What he saw gave birth to his theories which led him to develop his evolutionary theory by means of natural selection.  These strange and exotic species that are fearless to humans allow for visitors to walk alongside prehistoric giant reptiles, and look alike small dinosaurs with big claws and sharp crowns that lay along the shore to absorb the warmth given by the sun. Also, Jacques Cousteau was amazed by the Galapagos Dragons and baptized the archipelago as “the last wildlife sanctuary”.  The Enchanted Islands will make any adventurer a natural history explorer.

M/V Galapagos Legend awaits you with open arms to create moments that you will cherish for a lifetime.
