Galapagos Classic

Jennifer Santoyo

How do I describe the Galapagos? It’s as if you stepped in through the looking glass to a magical place where you can walk freely among 100s of dozing marine iguanas, step within feet of nesting blue footed boobies, swim among playful pups, and stare deep into the eyes of ancient giant tortoises. Few animals bother to budge as they appear to have lost their instinct of fear, but it’s this fearlessness that makes the Galapagos Islands so unique as it offers guests the opportunity to experience a place in which humans and animals can coexist in peaceful harmony.



I had so many memorable experiences during my travels, but by far my favorite highlight was snorkeling. It was absolutely epic swimming with sea turtles, sea lions, Galapagos penguins, manta rays, sharks, and a huge diversity of colorful tropical fishes. My favorite moment was being surrounded by countless sea turtles whose relaxed demeanor was so contagious that I felt so at ease and at peace.



My experience was only enhanced by the amazing naturalists and guides aboard the National Geographic Endeavour II. They went above and beyond in ensuring that each day was jammed packed with opportunities to explore the Galapagos by land and sea. The days were meticulously planned to great details which allowed us to experience each island to its fullest.



These surreal islands should be understood and prized by as many people as possible as they will only leave you with wonderment.



If you want to go back in time and leave your fears behind, then walk through the looking glass and explore the Galapagos Islands.
