Charles Darwin may have gotten here first, but his ride definitely wasn’t as nice. Join us aboard the splendid Evolution (G10) and set sail for an adventure to the less-visited western and central islands. Check out Fernandina’s massive marine iguana colonies, meet giant tortoises that are over 100 years old, get a deeper understanding of ecology at the Charles Darwin Foundation and snorkel amidst cavorting sea lions off the shores of Española. Best of all, you’ll have a pair of Level III naturalist guides at your disposal to put it all into perspective.
