GALAPAGOS ISLANDS - ARE THEY WORTH IT? - Chase the Story 40
 
17:49
With our amazing sailing trip to the Galapagos Islands coming to an end, we go in search of the elusive penguins (yes - apparently there are penguins at the Equator - who knew??) Along the way, we come across swimming iguanas, a No Swimming Sign (which we thankfully listened to, as it was Shark Central), sea horses, blue-footed boobies and we get to swim with enormous turtles. In the name of adventure, we surf the waves in to one remote region of Isla Isabela on a motor boat which turns out to be mildly terrifying. Happy sailing everyone!

Since Darwin's time, the natural wonders of the Galapagos Archipelago have inspired and awed its visitors -- and we were no exception. Coming face to face with boobies, iguanas, frigate birds, sea lions, albatrosses, fur seals, penguins, flightless cormorants and other native and endemic species brought the wonder of these islands right into our lens.

MY TRIP TO GALAPAGOS ISLANDS | Lauren In Real Life
 
28:21
I went to Galapagos Islands in April and it was such a fascinating and eye opening trip. There were so many sea lions, but I also saw lots of other animals including a couple penguins. I did love it in many ways, but I was also very aware of the human impact on this precious and unique environment. I obviously don't know the full picture, nor could I in 6 days, but my gut feeling was that this place should probably remain a lot less untouched by human development and I certainly was carrying some weight about that the entire time I was there.

Things To Know Before Visiting the Galapagos Islands
 
04:07
Things to know before visiting the Galapagos Islands The people at Quasar Expeditions were kind enough to take us out on the beautiful Grace Yacht. The high level of service when we were on board along with the amazing crew inspired this video. I highly recommend coming and seeing it for yourself. Ralph has over 26 years of experience and knows a thing or two about getting the most out of your vacation. The first suggestion that he had was that if you are traveling with your family or a group of friends, it would be better for you to charter a boat. Giving you flexibility you would not have on a big ship, such as being able to get in to the water at any time and not be subjected to eating at specific times Smaller boats can house 12 people, thus allowing for a more personal experience, while the larger ships can go up to 110 passengers. This would create a lower cost to your trip as it's shared with many other passengers but it wouldn't give you the best experience. Another few things to know before visiting the Galapagos Islands is that you are in Ecuador, the rays of the sun are stronger and it is easier to get burned, so make sure that you always have sunblock with you. While doing the expeditions whether it is the diving, finding secret coves and exploring the landscape. Have a few variations of footwear, sandals for the beach & sneakers for when you're on rocky surfaces to give you a good grip. For the most part, the seas are quite calm and level, so for anyone that struggles with sea sickness, you will be fine out in the Galapagos Islands. Some passengers use Dramamine if they are prone to sea sickness. Ralph doesn't recommend it as it can have some bad side effects. Most of the journeys that Quasar Expeditions take are so short that is very rarely a problem. There are a couple that is in open water and has a chance for the seas to be choppy. I hope you enjoyed this video on things to know before visiting the Galapagos Islands, any comments or experiences you may have, please share below for others to see and start a conversation about traveling and trading.

Galapagos Islands Vacation Travel Video Guide
 
52:01
Modern residential buildings dominate the townscape of Quito, the capital of Ecuador, that was founded in Spanish colonial times. Quito is the starting point for most journeys through this fascinating county that is situated on the Equator and which offers both cultural as well as many natural attractions and most especially, the Galapagos Islands. The journey to the fascinating animal kingdom of the Galapagops Islands begins in Baquerizo Moreno the largest settlement on the island which also has the largest fishing harbour of the entire archipelago. The rolling movement of the Poseidon, the expedition’s diving boat, provides a hint of the adventures that lie ahead. The remarkable biodiversity of the islands is also evident in the various species of birdlife that are to be found there. As opposed to the reptiles that are endemic, around fifty percent of the world’s bird species inhabit the archipelago. The flame-red Sally Lightfoot Crab that is to be found on most of the rocky coastline is particularly easy to spot on the dark volcanic rocks of the islands. The Humboldt Current that travels from Antarctica and past the South American coast, added to the water that surges up from the depths of the ocean, provides the archipelago with nutrient rich water that attracts huge shoals of fish. The most famous visitor to the islands arrived in 1835 and today the name of scientist Charles Darwin is inseparably associated with the archipelago. Following his stay on the island he formulated the world famous Theory Of Evolution, the theory of natural selection. The fifty islands of the archipelago are one of the great wonders of nature and fortunately have retained their natural beauty right up to the present day. -------------- Watch more travel videos ► https://goo.gl/MXPgSs Join us.

Galapagos Islands Tour
 
02:44
For more information on the Galapagos Islands Tour with Exodus Travels: http://www.baconismagic.ca/ecuador/galapagos-video/ and http://www.baconismagic.ca/ecuador/galapagos-cruise-2/ I was fortunate enough to be a guest for an incredible 8 day cruise with Exodus Travels on the sail boat the Cachelote. There are a number of Galapagos Cruises in the islands but this is one of the few that actually offers a sail boat option and believe me if you are visiting the Galapagos islands you want to be on a sail boat. I wasn't sure what to expect on a Galapagos Islands tour, everyone says the area is fantastic but I wasn't sure if it could really live up to its hype. But I must say it lived up to it and so much more. Over the 8 day cruise we visited: Santa Fe, Kicker Rock, San Cristobal, Punta Suarez, Post Office Bay, Punta Cormorant, Sullivan Bay, Genovesa, Floreana, Turtle Cove and more. Each day I wondered how the next could possible compare but each day was so incredible. The most interesting on the Galapagos tours is that the animals are not afraid at all. As a visitor you have to be very careful not to get too close to the animals as they will walk right up to you. You do need to be wary with the sea lions, especially the male bulls who may be protecting the females. I also discovered one day that a small sea lion thought I was shooting some of the video too close and nipped me on the leg as a warning. I took the hint and moved back. On a Galapagos Islands tour you see so many animals, including the sea lions I mentioned above, fur seals, three types of sharks, manta rays, turtles, dolphins, friggot birds, albatross, so many types of lizards and iguanas and each islands animals can be completely different. I am so grateful to Exodus for hosting me on this Galapagos cruise, it is truly a magical place and one that I'll never forget.

How many days do I need to visit the Galapagos?
 
04:45
How many days do I need to visit the Galapagos? This video will solve this question and more. Hello Galapagos Explorers. I'm sure you remember our Three Main Tips video and all the new things you learned from it. I'm Francisco "Pancho" Dousdebes and I'm here today to share with you how to explore Galapagos like an expert with one new idea: TIME. How much time you need here to really enjoy these amazing islands? Although you can certainly return to Galapagos as many times as you can, this destination is conceived as a once-in-a-lifetime-trip. This is why you need to make your first trip, the best trip of all. In fact, duration of a Galapagos expedition is key for deeply exploring this archipelago. When planning a Galapagos trip, most explorers believe that a few islands will do the job, when in reality it is the total number of islands visited that will lead you a successful trip. Of course, the longer you stay, the more islands you will get to explore, and that's connected to how diversity unfolds on your trip. We must remember that just getting to & from the islands pretty much involves a full day, so the question is: why would you take a very short cruise there? But, let's understand first how geographic isolation is the best ingredient on this trip. You see, from a geological and evolutionary approach, island and wildlife diversity is intricately connected with isolation. Therefore, the more distant islands you visit, the better your experience. For covering all that distance, you need time. Most exploring options here use the idea of visiting the islands for at least five days. That alone tells you that the islands do cover a vast area in the Pacific Ocean. In fact, this place is huge. And, once again, this is when the length of your expedition makes total sense. With the idea of diversity in mind, is not just landscapes that are stunningly different, but the wildlife is incredibly diverse. Quite naturally, the many activities for exploring are exciting too, and these include hiking, snorkeling, glass-bottom boat, coastal exploration, sea kayaking, and many more. Now, take a look at how different these five-day itineraries can be…and keep in mind that with these you are only scratching the surface of what the islands can show. And let's not forget that longer expeditions are also available including seven, nine, eleven and fifteen days. Who knows how much wildlife and experiences you will witness in all that time. The reality is that you will find shorter cruise options around, but they will lack content, experiences, and at the end you will leave the islands with the sense of "something is missing". The reason: you will spend lots of time just sailing from place to place. If a short time is available, say just three nights, then a land-based program is the way to go. This is when you will maximize visitor sites of the National Park, and your overall experience will focus in wildlife content and not just sailing between locations. The main idea here is to take back home the best possible memories, right? That can happen if you come and explore for at least five days, while remembering longer options are always available. In other words, you shouldn't go back home with the idea that the trip was missing a lot. You may also want to consider the idea that short stays have a high environmental footprint per day, because of total amount of distances traveled. That just can't be good, right? “Alright, so a quick summary of these ideas tells us: 1. First, 5-day Galapagos cruises have been labeled as “an MINIMUM amount of time for island exploring”. 2. Second, longer trips are also available. These include 7,9,11,15 days. 3. Third, one trip alone should deliver the best and most rewarding experiences. Remember: more time here, means more wildlife. 4. Finally, if only 3 nights or less are available go for a hotel program, anything longer than that you’re better off on board an expedition vessel 5. So, join us soon for a wonderful Galapagos expedition, where time here is what makes a holiday an out-of-the-ordinary adventure. Use your time wisely. I'm Francisco "Pancho" Dousdebes for the Galapagos Travel Expert program. For more information visit our web http://www.galapagostravelexpert.com/

03:03
What should I pack for the Galapagos tour? Get more inspiration at http://www.galapagosexpedition.info/ When planning a Galapagos cruise, one of the first questions that arises is: what should we pack for the trip. This video is a guide in words and pictures of what to pack for the trip. Your luggage should be limited to one medium-size suitcase of 20kg (44 lbs) and one small carry-on bag The airline restricts and enforces the amount of luggage passengers may bring to the islands to 1-piece weighing no more than.

Galapagos Islands Cruises & Trip 2016 - Galapagos Islands tourism & vacations 2016 Travel Videos HD, World Travel Guide http://www.youtube.com/subscription_center?add_user=World1Tube The Galapagos Islands are a small archipelago of islands belonging to Ecuador in the eastern Pacific Ocean. The islands are quite remote and isolated, lying some 1000 km (620 miles) west of the South American continent. The Galapagos archipelago consists of 13 main islands and 6 smaller isles, which together embrace some 50,000 sq km (19,500 sq miles) of ocean. See in Galapagos Islands =================== On each island, the number of visitors are limited and there are only a small number of official landing and visitor sites. You must follow the instructions of your guide to protect the wildlife and you are not allowed off the marked paths. This is not a problem as the animals are so tame they will sit right on the path or cross it without caring about mere tourists. The Charles Darwin foundation administers several research stations throughout the islands, including a large station in Puerto Ayora that is worth visiting for its animal and natural history exhibits, the Galapagos Interpretation Center in Puerto Baquerizo Moreno and the Tortoise Breeding Center are the most interesting of the breeding centers in Puerto Villamil. Samba Galapagos, Chimborazo SE-110, ☎ 289 0418, M/S Samba offers 8 or 15 day cruises around the archipelago. Our Galapagos trips are oriented to live and experience an authentic adventure in a unique and incomparable natural world.

Wildlife highlights: Being a young island, it only allows pioneer species to conquer and thrive here. Geology and scenery are fascinating. Pinnacle Rock is by all means the best photographic attraction. Cruises in Galapagos Islands ===================== Cruises are the only option to see the majority of remote islands.Galapagos Cruises on the Galapagos Islands Imagine Ecuador [29] The Galapagos Tours 36, other options for selecting a cruise in the Galapagos Islands from local operators are Galapagos Boutique Yachts 37, Galapagos by Voyagers Travel, amongst other specialized travel agents. An important cruise review site to look at and find trip reports and comments refering to the different boats operating in the archipelago is: Galapagos Travel Advisor 39. Although the Galapagos Islands are a beautiful once -in- a -lifetime experience no matter which boat you are on, remember that you'll still spend a considerable amount of your holiday on board. Here are the most common considerations when choosing a boat. Do I take a Galapagos Large or Galapagos Small Boat? Small Galapagos boats, as well as impressive cruise ships have both advantages and drawbacks. Small Galapagos Yachts: ------------------------------------------------- For those who prefer a more intimate experience onboard and on the islands, we recommend choosing a small yacht. The small yachts that we offer are typically handmade romantic sailboats or swift modern motor yachts that offer high quality personal service. All the confort and luxury on board you will find on the Galapagos Catamarans38 There is less impact on the fragile Galapagos environment. Another advantage to small yachts is the fact that often, large ships cannot anchor or disembark at some visitor sites due to their size or a high number of passengers. Galapagos Cruise Ships: [Cruises] =========================== For those that want the extra safety, social feel, amenities, stability, and spaciousness that cruise ships provide, larger ships may be the ideal way to visit the Galapagos. The Galapagos National Park sets a wise limit on ships to 100 passengers. The cruise ships offer more spacious and often more comfortable standards in service and accommodations than you thought necessary, but will truly enhance your trip. Charter a Galapagos Boat If you are group of students, a corporation, a club, on a honeymoon and want a private experience, or any group of people who wants to explore the Galapagos Islands on a chartered boat.

Galápagos Islands HD

Galápagos Islands, Ecuador Amazon Tourism HD Galápagos Islands Travel HD http://youtu.be/QtfM4uJ2Lxw Galápagos Islands Vacations http://youtu.be/Inqg0jwJf6Q The Galápagos Islands (official name: Archipiélago de Colón, other Spanish names: Islas Galápagos, Spanish pronunciation: [ɡaˈlapaɣos]) are an archipelago of volcanic islands distributed on either side of the Equator in the Pacific Ocean, 926 km (575 mi) west of continental Ecuador, of which they are a part. The Galápagos Islands and their surrounding waters form an Ecuadorian province, a national park, and a biological marine reserve. The principal language on the islands is Spanish. The islands have a population of slightly over 25,000. The islands are famed for their vast number of endemic species and were studied by Charles Darwin during the voyage of the Beagle. His observations and collections contributed to the inception of Darwin's theory of evolution by natural selection. The first recorded visit to the islands happened by chance in 1535, when the Bishop of Panamá Fray Tomás de Berlanga went to Peru to arbitrate in a dispute between Francisco Pizarro and Diego de Almagro. De Berlanga was blown off course, though he eventually returned to the Spanish Empire and described the conditions of the islands and the animals that inhabited them. The group of islands was shown and named in Abraham Ortelius's atlas published in 1570. The first crude map of the islands was made in 1684 by the buccaneer Ambrose Cowley, who named the individual islands after some of his fellow pirates or after British royalty and noblemen. These names were used in the authoritative navigation charts of the islands prepared during the Beagle survey under captain Robert Fitzroy, and in Darwin's popular book The Voyage of the Beagle. The then new Republic of Ecuador took the islands from Spanish ownership in 1832, and subsequently gave the islands official Spanish names.The older names remained in use in English language publications, including Herman Melville's The Encantadas of 1854. History The Galápagos Islands ---------------------------------- European discovery of the Galápagos Islands occurred when Spaniard Fray Tomás de Berlanga, the fourth Bishop of Panama, sailed to Peru to settle a dispute between Francisco Pizarro and his lieutenants. De Berlanga's vessel drifted off course when the winds diminished, and his party reached the islands on 10 March 1535. According to a 1952 study by Thor Heyerdahl and Arne Skjølsvold, remains of potsherds and other artifacts from several sites on the islands suggest visitation by South American peoples prior to the arrival of the Spanish. However, no remains of graves, ceremonial vessels and constructions have ever been found, suggesting no permanent settlement occurred at the time. The Galápagos Islands first appeared on the maps, of Gerardus Mercator and Abraham Ortelius, in about 1570. The islands were named "Insulae de los Galopegos" (Islands of the Tortoises) in reference to the giant tortoises found there. The first English captain to visit the Galápagos Islands was Richard Hawkins, in 1593. Until the early 19th century, the archipelago was often used as a hideout by mostly English pirates who pilfered Spanish galleons carrying gold and silver from South America to Spain. In 1793, James Colnett described the flora and fauna of Galápagos, and suggested the islands could be used as base for the whalers operating in the Pacific Ocean. He drew the first accurate navigation charts of the islands. Whalers and maritime fur traders killed and captured thousands of the Galápagos tortoises to extract their fat. The tortoises could be kept on board ship as a means of providing of fresh protein, as these animals could survive for several months on board without any food or water. The hunting of the tortoises was responsible for greatly diminishing, and in some cases eliminating, certain species. Along with whalers came the fur-seal hunters, who brought the population of this animal close to extinction. The first known permanent human resident on Galapagos was Patrick Watkins, an Irish sailor who was marooned on the Island Floreana from 1807--1809. According to later accounts,[14][15] Watkins managed to survive by hunting, growing vegetables and trading with visiting whalers, before finally stealing an open boat and navigating to Guayaquil. ========================= Galápagos Islands Travel, Galápagos Islands Travel Guide, Galápagos Islands Tours, Galápagos Islands Tourism, Galápagos Islands Vacations, Galápagos Islands History, Galápagos Islands Nature, Quito, Amazon, Ecuador

Galapagos Vacation Travel Video Guide

Travel video about destination Galapagos. Intriguing and mysterious the islands of the Galapagos archipelago rise up from the Pacific Ocean. Around one thousand kilometres off the South American continent the extensive group of nineteen volcanic islands have an almost primeval appearance. These islands derived their name from the Spanish word for 'turtle'. For many centuries the giant turtles were considered to be a culinary delicacy and a total of fourteen sub-species of giant turtle inhabit the islands, some of which have been known to live for more than a hundred and fifty years. Even today ocean biologists and an assortment of other scientists follow in the footsteps of Charles Darwin and in the 1960's a research station on one of the islands was named in his honour. With the introduction of non-indigenous dogs, cats and rats, the ecological balance on some of the islands has become critical, however, since 1959 the Galapagos Islands have been designated as a protected area. -------------- Watch more travel videos ► https://goo.gl/MXPgSs Join us.

The Galapagos Islands - Day Trips
 
03:20
The Galapagos Islands, Ecuador - Day Trips. The islands can be accessed through cruises or day trips from Puerto Ayora - the main city on the island of Santa Cruz. I chose the day trip options due to price concerns ($1500 for everything) of a solo traveler, and was still able to see multiple islands, tortoises, animals, lava tunnels, volcanoes, ect. The place really is diverse and can be seen without breaking the bank. I went to Isabella Island as I was told the island was the most diverse in the Galapagos - and because I came during Easter weekend and the Bartolome island trip was fully booked. I saw the yellow iguanas, marine iguanas, penguins, seals, sea turtles, and amazing fish. I was also able to hike the active Sierra Negra volcano and surf the clear blue waters. Warning. Make sure you watch what you eat. I ate local lobster and got severely sick - it stuck with me for a few weeks. I mentioned this to other travelers and heard the same story. Mind you, i was eating awesome street food. For what its worth. Please like or comment. (I was-trying a few new things with this edits, so I know its not as good as my other videos.

Trip to Machu Picchu, Urubamba & Galapagos Islands 2016

Trip to Machu Picchu, Urubamba & Galapagos Islands 2016 - Visit Machu Picchu, Urubamba & Galapagos Islands (HD 1080p) Travel Videos HD, World Travel Guide http://www.youtube.com/subscription_center?add_user=World1Tube The Galápagos Islands ================== The Galápagos Islands may just inspire you to think differently about the world. The creatures that call the islands home, many found nowhere else in the world, act as if humans are nothing more than slightly annoying paparazzi. This is not the Bahamas and these aren’t typical tropical paradises; in fact, most of the islands are devoid of vegetation and some look more like the moon than Hawaii. However, more humans live here than is commonly assumed, and there’s a surprising level of development in the islands’ towns, mostly geared toward the thriving tourism industry. This isolated group of volcanic islands and its fragile ecosystem has taken on almost mythological status as a showcase of biodiversity. Yet you don’t have to be an evolutionary biologist or an ornithologist to appreciate one of the few places left on the planet where the human footprint is kept to a minimum. Machu Picchu ============ For many visitors to Peru and even South America, a visit to the Inca city of Machu Picchu is the long-anticipated highpoint of their trip. In a spectacular location, it’s the best-known archaeological site on the continent. This awe-inspiring ancient city was never revealed to the conquering Spaniards and was virtually forgotten until the early part of the 20th century. In the high season, from late May until early September, 2500 people arrive daily. Despite this great tourist influx, the site manages to retain an air of grandeur and mystery, and is a must for all visitors to Peru. The site is most heavily visited between 10am and 2pm. June through August are the busiest months. Urubamba ========== A busy and unadorned urban center, Urubamba is a transport hub surrounded by bucolic foothills and snowy peaks. The advantages of its lower altitude and relative proximity to Machu Picchu make it popular with both high-end hotels and package tours. While there is little of historical interest, nice countryside and great weather make it a convenient base from which to explore the extraordinary salt flats of Salinas and the terracing of Moray. Since Urubamba is quite spread out, the mode of transport of choice are mototaxis (three-wheeled motorcycle rickshaw taxis). The Plaza de Armas is five blocks east and four blocks north of the terminal, bounded by Calle Comercio and Jirón Grau.

ECUADOR GAY TRAVEL: Galapagos Islands - GoPro Hero 5
 
02:51
We spent a week cruising around the Galapagos Islands on the luxury yacht The Passion using our GoPro Hero 5 camera and made lots of friends with sea lions, giant tortoises, eagle rays and more! The Galapagos Islands are an archipelago of volcanic islands in the Pacific Ocean, around 1,000km (600 miles) from Ecuador’s coast. The variety of unique wildlife here not only inspired Darwin back in 1835, it completely captivated us when we visited in October 2016. This is one of the few places in the world where you get so close to the wildlife because they are blazé to humans. You’ll be so spoilt, no other safari will be the same again. It’s not just above ground you get close with wildlife. There are many opportunities to go snorkelling and discover the rich underwater world surrounding the Galapagos Islands where reef sharks, manta rays, tropical fish and of course the many playful sea lions await you.
