About
This Tour

With sea-swept volcanic terrain and an abundance of exotic creatures as curious about you as you are about them, the Galápagos offers a family-friendly wilderness and wildlife experience like no other.

•    Leap over lava bombs, spatter cones and lava tubes on a hike to the top of an inactive volcano
•    Earn your bragging rights on a snorkel excursion with white-tipped sharks and manta rays
•    Swim with a family of penguins as they fish for their lunch off a rocky shore
•    Play hide and seek with a sea lion pup off the nose of your kayak
•    Hike to a natural spring, once the stomping ground for visiting pirates
•    Watch as a blue-footed booby dances in courtship
•    Come nose to nose with a 600-pound, 150-year-old tortoise
•    Polish off the day with a plate of BBQ and warm Galapaguena hospitality before calling it a night in your carefully selected island lodge

Enjoy the town’s best food at the lodge’s seaside restaurant that features both traditional Galapagos and Japanese cuisine.

Nights 2 & 3: Floreana Lodge

Located in Puerto Velasco Ibarra, the Red Mangrove Floreana Lava Lodge is built entirely on pinewood from the mainland forests. Placed in front of the ocean on black lava surface, each cabin has its own bathroom, front porch, and shady reading area so you can enjoy the beautiful surroundings from the comfort of your private living space.

Nights 4 - 6: Red Mangrove Isabela Lodge

Isabela is the largest of the Galapagos Islands. Formed by six large volcanic domes fused together, this is one of the most volcanically active places on earth. Separated from the ocean only by a broad, white sand, palm-lined beach, our oceanfront Lodge has a beautiful wooden deck by the sea for all to enjoy as well as a roof top terrace with sea vistas for miles. All guest rooms have two luxurious queen size beds and their own private bathroom.

A few more reasons why you've gotta go…

  • 1. You don’t need to be wearing a jacket and freezing your nose off to see a penguin in the wild, 1500 aptly named Galapagos Penguins live, swim, and waddle around these islands each day!
  • 2. Haven’t you always wanted to see a lizard swim!?!? You’ll have to come here to cross that off the bucket list because the only marine going lizards in the world, the marine iguanas, are found in the Galapagos.
  • 3. Charles Darwin was twenty-six when he first saw the Galapagos Islands. His observations about life on the islands eventually led to his famed theory of evolution.
