Galapagos Yacht Charter Information

When you think of the Galapagos Islands off from Ecuador's coast, it's impossible to get out of your mind shots of large tortoises, blue footed boobies, long-dead masters of the sea, the Beagle, Darwin and his (in)famous Origin of Species. These mostly volcanic islands have seen history die before it's eyes, but these islands still live on, growing one-inch per year in fact. The Galapagos in and of themselves offer an unforgettable yacht charter destination. If it doesn't top your To Sail list, then it should. The prices can vary, with both luxury and austerity charters available. However padded your wallet, be sure to see the Galapagos at least once in your life from the bow of a yacht. Night scuba dives, snorkeling, submarine tours, ecology laboratories, wild animals, sailable winds and sunny days opens the doors to another world altogether.
