Darwin’s Galapagos

with Jo Ruxton

Explore the Galapagos Islands from the comfort of a luxury
small-berth yacht accompanied by marine conservationist and
documentary producer Jo Ruxton

A paradise for natural history, animal and geology lovers, we have curated a distinctive trip
which includes the UNESCO World Cultural Heritage Site of Quito followed by eight days
exploring at sea and exclusive behind the scenes access at the Galapagos Science Centre.
The spacious and stylish yacht Natural Paradise is small enough to get into bays that larger
expedition ships cannot go near, so you get to experience Galapagos as Darwin did.

Galapagos sea lions, marine iguanas lounging on the shores, blue-footed boobies patrolling
the skies, giant tortoises, sally lightfoot crabs and green sea turtles are just a few of the
animals native to this fascinating archipelago.


k Lots of opportunities to visit the many
islands by panga boat and snorkel in these
amazing waters
k Observe a wide variety of wildlife including
reef sharks, nazca, blue-footed boobies, sea
lions, Galapagos penguins, seahorses, sea
turtles and the strange yet fascinating mola.
k Explore Latin America’s largest and best-
preserved historic centre and colonial quarters
in Ecuador’s capital, Quito
