A Living Classroom Combining Learning, Leisure and Fun!
When you cruise the Galapagos Islands, it’s not an ordinary cruise. This isn’t about buffets, suntans, party and relaxation, a Galapagos cruise is about exploring one of the most remarkable places on earth. A place that has had a huge global impact on science, nature and history. In fact, you could call it the world’s biggest classroom. And for anyone in search of knowledge or looking to rediscover their inner child’s sense of awe and wonder, it’s a logical destination.
The origins of the archipelago located 600 miles of the Ecuadorian coast are remarkable by themselves. Situated above a ridge of sub-aquatic volcanoes, the islands are the results of millions of years of shifting tectonic plates and eruptions. In fact, some of the islands are little more than the dormant tips of massive volcanoes, with visible calderas and solidified lava flows.
Due to the islands’ isolation and geographical position in the middle of the Pacific, they were not discovered by man until the mid 16th century. This allowed the wildlife on the island to evolve in a completely unique way. In fact, as many people know, it is the clear development of certain traits among species that inspired Charles Darwin to conceive of his theory of evolution in the first instance. In that respect, these islands changed the world. And it’s something you can see in action for yourself when you cruise the Galapagos Islands. See the many species of finch that so intrigued Darwin, thanks to their small evolutionary differences. And come face to face with the sub-species of tortoises found across the islands, each having adapted in slightly new ways to their environment.
Of course, all work and no play makes jack a dull boy. So, alongside the fascinating natural and historical features, a cruise to the Galapagos provides amazing leisure opportunities. These include the chance to snorkel in some of the world’s most bio-diverse waters; with so many spots located within the Galapagos map, this is the perfect combination of education and fun for people of all ages. there is also the possiblity to do open-water diving on specialized live-aboard cruises.
As you can see, cruise the Galapagos Islands and you’ll discover a destination with plenty of excitement and interest.
