The Galapagos Islands have played a tremendous role in the scientific history of the world. It was in this verdant setting, teeming with life in an infinitely varied glory, that Charles Darwin made the observations that led to his thoughts on evolution. Today’s inquiring minds are still drawn to the Galapagos. The bio-diversity that inspired Darwin delights still today.
If you’re an experienced scuba diver, with more than 100 certified dives, you can experience the Galapagos Islands in a way that Darwin could only dream of. There are two great liveaboard diving boats in the Galapagos. The Darwin Buddy and Wolf Buddy bring divers directly to some of the most pristine, bio-diverse waters on the planet, making the Galapagos one of the most popular dive locations in the world. You’ll see species of fish, sea life, and shark there that occur nowhere else on Earth.
Because the Galapagos Islands have played such a pivotal role in history and contain such amazing bio-diversity, they are one of the most popular travel destinations. What’s the impact of all of this tourism on the sensitive Galapagos environment? Luckily, the Ecuadorian government, in concert with all of the concerned nations of the world, has been very pro-active in preserving the region’s natural beauty. Marine parks and heritage sites are strictly monitored and maintained so they can be enjoyed by today’s travelers– and tomorrow’s travelers too! We invite you to travel to the Galapagos Islands!
