We took two excellent and back to back one week trips in the Galapagos with Ecoventura. The two itineraries are designed to see different areas so sights and islands were not repeated. Two weeks is still too little time to see all the amazing flora and fauna. Homero, our captain, our naturalist guides, Jose and Freddy, on the first week, Hernan and James on the second week, and the whole crew were superb, and attentive to ensure we saw, understood and appreciated the unique biology and geology of the islands. We were very happy with the boat, the crew and extremely happy with the excellent food.
Because we were there for two weeks, we managed to see many special sights: sea turtles laying eggs on the beach at dawn, whales, sharks, the mating dance of blue footed boobies, the courtship of frigate birds, swimming with sea lions, sea turtles and marine iguanas, the new species of land tortoise with horns on Santa Cruz, excellent snorkeling, and penguins in two different areas.
We were extremely happy to have had such an excellent trip with two weeks in Galapagos with Ecoventura and would recommend it to anyone truly interested in an amazing excursion with plenty of exercise.
