Come To Galapagos, developing sustainable
in the Galapagos. Travel as part of the solution.
Our Staff Welcomes YOU!
On this site, aside from
information about Galapagos private tours and Galapagos
private vacations with our company you will find
information from the National Park Service
(galapagospark.org), The Charles Darwin
Foundation (darwinfoundation.org) and The
Galapagos Conservation Trust (gct.org). Their
own web sites have far more extensive libraries
of information. We have included items we felt
directly pertinent to your travel. There are two
movie clips for your amusement and Michael D’Orso has allowed us
to excerpt several sections of his book
Plundering Paradise, a non-fiction narrative
about the Galapagos published in 2002.
our monthly “Friends and Family” letters
archived, a novel I wrote in it’s entirety about
beginning our lives here titled, Living
Galapagos, subtitled, Usually They Kill
Themselves (don’t let the titles of these books
fool you) and our weekly commentary on news
coming out of the US regarding the Galapagos and
our commentary on the news here in Galapagos and
Ecuador are also archived. It is important if
not critical to a world wide understanding of
the challenges we face here, that the people of
the world also have a local perspective. Below
you’ll find a brief description of our company
The Galapagos Islands today
are very much like what the Hawaiian Islands were 200 years
ago, except in Spanish and with a few other worldly
characters thrown in.
150 years ago, Charles Darwin
arrived here in The Galapagos, actually here on this island
of San Cristobal and his experience changed his perception
of life, history and the universe. This is that kind of
place; dream like for naturalists, sportifs, honeymooners
and especially families.
Its all here, the animals and
birds unique to these islands, the history, exhibits, warm,
unbelievable clear water, beaches, coves and bays, the
swimming, snorkeling, kayaking, bike and mountain treks,
world class surfing, diving and open ocean fishing and
there's a staff of professional, multi-lingual guides ready to
show/escort you to it all personally.

Come taste the Bienvenidos
(Welcome) of San Cristobal. Wild horses, pigs and tortoises
roam the highlands. In the pueblo the church bells ring for
weddings, to call people to mass, for emergencies and for
deaths. The sea lions bellow on the beach, the sea turtles
take a breath, the Boobies (blue footed) a pause. At night
the seals curl up on the doorstep of the bank.
There is one road that crosses the island, rutted and slow
going, but from there the wild horses and giant tortoises
can be seen, the coffee and bamboo farms toured and the
views from the highlands of these pristine islands can bring
a moments peace to troubled hearts. In the warm, clear sea, the seals come to play with
you, the sea turtles, reef fish, rays and small sharks are
often as curious about you as you are about them. The sea
iguanas and seals on the beaches and rocks behave as if you
belong there, as you will if you make the trip.

Most of the tourists we see
here, (outside our clients) we see through the glass of the
buses in which they are hermetically sealed as they are
whisked from their airplanes, to the cruise ships where they
are shown a canned version of the Galapagos in the company
of as many as eighty of their brethren. If you could visit
Hawaii 200 years ago, would you want to do it on a cruise
ship, seven islands in seven days? If so, we wish you
nothing but the best.
Our Galapagos Island Tours and Vacations are hands on,
feet in the water (wet), family oriented (ours and maybe
yours) encounter with the real Galapagos, not a Disneyland
ride. You will be entering our world, our family and
friends. Get off the beaten path. Come enjoy the Galapagos
as only native Galapagenians can deliver them! Plan ahead!
Our resources are limited. Please book early so that we may
accommodate you fully.
