Galapagos fixed departure



This Galapagos fixed departure is a great adventure for nature explorers looking for comfort while exploring the unique Galapagos islands. The Galapagos Legend is a high-class vessel. This for the simple reason that the equipment of the Legend corresponds to this of a luxury yacht; the prices, however, are lower and equal to those of a mid-range Galapagos tour, if you book the Legend through us.

This legendary, 100-passenger, deluxe-class vessel offers all the amenities of a large cruise liner without sacrificing the intimacy you would expect on a small sailing craft, and consequently allows you to have it all. All of the cabins and suites (many are interconnected) are outfitted with the following amenities: air-conditioning, wardrobes and private facilities offering showers, hot and cold water, hair dryer, safe deposit boxes, and other amenities. The facilities and other features include an auditorium for conferences and special group meetings, multiple social areas, special menus and activities for children, sauna, jacuzzi, massage, Ecuadorian and international specialties at the dining room, creative vegetarian menus or meals for those who have special diets, a coffee bar, swimming pool with broad sun decks and observation platforms (for whale and dolphin watching, during inter-island cruising. 

Among its courteous, professional team of 55 employees are 6 multilingual naturalist guides (each speaking an average of four languages), a concierge, a chef who constantly spoils you with inventive combinations of Ecuadorian and international cuisines, and an M.D. who is always on call.

Waved albatross at Espanola Island, Galapagos, Ecuador



Wet landing on a beautiful white coral sand beach guarded by a colony of sea lions. There are no trails, so we stay along the shore where we can spot Galapagos hawks, American Oystercatchers, Galapagos Ground Doves, Hood mockingbirds*, Yellow Warblers, lava lizards, marine iguanas, and three species of Darwin’s finches: a subspecies (Geospiza fuliginosa) of the Large Cactus Finch, which is similar to the large ground finch, the Small Ground Finch (Geospiza fuliginosa) and the Warbler Finch (Certhidea Olivacea), another endemic subspecies.

A somewhat lengthy hike will bring you among Nazca and Blue-footed Boobies, * right up to nesting grounds that sometimes overlap the trail.

Pacific Green Turtle - Floreana - Galapagos Islands



Wet landing. Located on the north side of Floreana, the bay was named because in 1793 Captain James Colnett installed a wooden barrel which served as an informal post office for sailors passing through, who would take letters with them back to their destinations. Today, visitors continue the tradition by placing unstamped postcards inside the barrel, hoping that some other traveler, going to the letter destination, will take it back for free. The chances are that the letterposted can take a long time to arrive to its destination. However, there have been cases where it has arrived before the sender.

We may also encounter Darwin’s finches, * Yellow Warbler and Lava Lizards. Great snorkeling opportunities with Green Pacific Sea Turtles. * As well, the island is best known for its endemic vegetation: Scalesia villosa, Lecocarpus Pinnatifidus, and the Galapagos Milkwort. Snorkelers can practice on the main beach among playful sea lions.


Difficulty level: easy

Type of terrain: sandy

Duration: 30-minute walk, 1-hour snorkeling


Wet landing, on an olivine green sandy beach. We hike from the black mangrove beds to a brackish lagoon, which usually holds one of the largest flamingo populations in the Galapagos. This island features some endemic plants such as Scalesia villosa, white and black mangrove, and holy stick. The trail continues to a beautiful white sandy beach, one of the most important nesting sites of Green Pacific Sea Turtles. It is important to avoid walking in the water due to the Sting Rays that may be hiding in the sand, which can be dangerous if accidentally stepped on. From the beach, one can spot sea turtles, blue-footed boobies plunging into the water, and small reef sharks floating along the shoreline in the search for food.

This coral-sand beach marks the end of our trail, and we head back to the olivine beach we landed on, to swim or snorkel amongst sea turtles, reef fish, sea lions and, on a good day, white-tipped reef sharks. A small colony of penguins resides on Floreana and can sometimes be observed as well.

Dragon Hill at Santa Cruz Island, Galapagos, Ecuador



Arriving at a small lava dock our first encounters are with marine iguanas that blend-in perfectly to the dark rock. As we walk past large prickly pear cacti we arrive at one end of a long sickle-shaped beach with Dragon Hill standing in the distance. Our walk takes us on a circular path, past a shallow lake where flamingoes frequently come to feed. Waders such as stilts, turnstones and sandpipers work the muddy edges frenetically looking for food as we continue inland to a dry, forested habitat where land iguanas’ nest and burrow.

Difficulty level: intermediate
