This month we are exploring the GalÃ¡pagos as destination for your Adventure-moon with our travel partners, Lindblad Expeditions-National Geographic.
The GalÃ¡pagos is best known as the basis for Darwin’s theory of natural selection, but we like to think of it as one of the best selections for adventure-mooning! And here’s why: Lindblad Expeditions-National Geographic offer an elegant and intimate setting among the pristine islands of Darwin’s discovery, as well as all the toys and excursions for romantic romps in this natural playground.
A typical day aboard will have you and your sweetie snorkeling at least once. Upwelling currents in the GalÃ¡pagos archipelago bathe the region in nutrient-rich waters making it incredibly rich in marine life. You’ll be surrounded by schools of colorful tropical fish, manta rays, and even a shark or two! There’s full snorkel gear, including wetsuits in every size available for you to use throughout your trip.
Need a break from snorkeling but still want to hit the water? Take a kayak ride for two to experience eye-level encounters with the wildlife, head off on a scenic, sunset cruise on our Zodiac landing craft, or stand-up paddleboard side-by-side as you float through the unspoiled, azure ocean. Or explore below while staying dry above”the glass-bottom Zodiac (National Geographic Endeavour II) is a window on the marine world.
The GalÃ¡pagos wildlife is fearless when it comes to humans so every time you go for a dip you’ll have some very entertaining company”from balletic sea lions and graceful green sea turtles to torpedo-like penguins and marine iguanas. Nowhere else in the world will you have the chance to make such amazing underwater memories.
And the exploring doesn’t stop when the sun goes down, you can get cozy with a cocktail and our view the wildlife through their underwater camera. High-definition video shot by Lindblad’s onboard naturalists is screened during evening cocktail hour on the lounge’s plasma screens so you get another in-depth look at the area’s diverse ocean life. Their exclusive undersea program is a pioneering expedition feature, designed to enrich and elevate your experience.
