Wilderness adventure company, Aqua-Firma, specialise in exploring where the land meets the sea. Their Galapagos Yacht & Lodge Safari provides a tailor-made opportunity to each traveller to incorporate all of the islands’s diversity with a combination of yacht based and activity focused exploration. With time split between the land and the sea, the accommodation is as varied as the wildlife. Nature highlights include Galapagos tortoises, penguins and blue-footed boobies – and all at close range. This safari offers the chance to split exploration between marine and land-based species. Prices are on a bespoke basis, based on the tour content and itinerary. Flights can be booked as part of the tour package, or independently by travellers.
The Galapagos is a diverse place with wonderful opportunities for close encounters with wildlife above and below the water. Added to this diversity is the variety of ways by which the islands and natural areas can be explored, which can often make it difficult to decide which way is right to discover the islands. The Galapagos Yacht & Lodge Safari has the answer.
The yacht based sections are ideal for providing focused natural history experiences on islands where land based accommodation is simply unavailable. Land based accommodation is particularly useful on the Galapagos’s largest island of Isabela, where there are several days worth of activities worth pursuing and for which a beachside hotel is a more comfortable and spacious option than a yacht.
“The Aqua-Firma Galapagos Yacht & Lodge Safari provides a unique chance to combine authentic land and sea exploration in an exciting new environment. A bespoke itinerary is tailored for each booking to ensure that explorers get the best from the destination according to their own interests. The Galapagos is a fascinating destination where you can get up close and personal with many native species”, says Aqua-Firma Director, Ralph Pannell.
