YACHT CHARTER IN THE GALAPAGOS ISLANDS
Located in the Pacific Ocean roughly 1000km from South America, the 19 islands that make up the Galapagos are the dream location for a yacht charter. The islands and the surrounding waters are a melting pot of species that can't be found anywhere else in the world. In fact, human visitors are nothing more than a minor inconvenience.
THE THEORY OF EVOLUTION
A whole host of unusual plant and animal life can be seen on a Galapagos yacht charter. This includes marine iguanas, flightless cormorants, giant tortoises, huge cacti, endemic trees and the many different subspecies of mockingbirds and finches. All of these inspired Charles Darwin's theory of evolution by natural selection following his visit on the Voyage of the Beagle in 1835.
This isolated group of volcanic islands and its fragile ecosystem has taken an almost mythological status as a showcase of biodiversity. Yet you don't have to be an evolutionary biologist to appreciate one of the few places left on the planet where the human footprint is kept to a minimum. A yacht charter in the Galapagos can deliver that.
