In part four of our series exploring the Galápagos Islands for your Adventure-moon, you won’t believe what we’ve learned about the exotic wildlife there!

Thanks to a lack of natural predators on the islands, you can get up close and personal with a variety of friendly wildlife — from playful sea lions to waved albatross birds. Albatrosses mate for life, which makes their mating dance an amazing site to see!

Their life-long commitment comes through in this dance – it’s how they choose their one and only for life! The courtship ritual is a very elusive and spectacular sight, which makes it a special experience to behold on your adventure-moon.

See the Video of Albatrosses from Lindblad Expeditions-National Geographic:

There may even be some drama!

Sometimes more aggressive males end up chasing off rivals who try to step in and interfere in the dance. Both the sounds and movements can be a bit comical at times.

And the adventures don’t stop. You can get cozy with a cocktail, view the underwater wildlife, take a kayak ride for two to experience eye-level encounters with the wildlife, head off on a scenic, sunset cruise on the Zodiac landing craft, or stand-up paddleboard side-by-side as you float through the unspoiled, azure ocean.

Oh, and animals pose for their portraits (sea lions are beyond camera-worthy adorable!) or simply allow you to get close enough to make amazing images… literally non-stop. And, there’s even a Lindblad-National Geographic certified photo instructor aboard each expedition ship – these pros will help you go home with GREAT photos!

Experiencing the mesmerizing beauty of the Galápagos Islands and all it has to offer is guaranteed to create a lasting memory that will stick with you and your partner for years (and anniversaries!) to come.

This month we are exploring the Galápagos as the destination for your Adventure-moon with our travel partners, Lindblad Expeditions-National Geographic.

Galápagos Islands

The Galápagos Islands is a bucket-list destination for good reason: Thanks to a lack of natural predators, and friendly wildlife such as playful sea lions and gigantic sea tortoises you can get up close and personal. For couples looking for one of the best destinations for an adventure-moon – this is it! And here’s why:

1) Non-Stop Photo Ops: Because the islands have always been isolated, and for some 50+ years now have enjoyed protection, the animals here have no fear of humans. They pose for their portraits (sea lions are beyond camera-worthy adorable!) or simply allow you to get close enough to make amazing images… literally non-stop.

2) Nature Lessons from the Pros: There’s a Lindblad-National Geographic certified photo instructor aboard each expedition ship. Trained by top Nat Geo photographers, these pros will help you with your camera settings, the basics of composition and more, to ensure you go home with GREAT photos. And because they’re naturalists too, you’ll get fascinating life lessons in how to really observe, so your nature photos really nail their subjects, your scenics really tell the story of the place, and your self-portraits are A+.

3) Creative Social Fun! Don’t think of yourself as a photographer? No worries! The fun of “aiming & creating” onboard Lindblad’s ships is so infectious, everybody gets caught up in it, and can see themselves get better at it, too. Photo presentations give the instructors opportunities to share their know-how, and guests learn from each other.

4) Like Traveling Light? No need to bring anything but your smart phone! Onboard Mac stations give you the perfect place to see your day’s photos, download your memory card & safely store images on your flash drive, share shots with your instructor and fellow guests, and more. And your photo instructor can help you get the most out of your smartphone’s camera.

5) The Adventures Keep Going! Take a kayak out for a photo safari. Cruise shorelines in a Zodiac and capture arresting flightless black cormorants, or a passing school of golden rays. Snorkel as often as twice daily, and bring your camera along to video “dances with sea lions”, passing penguins, floating sea turtles and kaleidoscopic fish.
