Galápagos was put on the map by Darwin, his finches, and the other unique creatures he studied on the shores of this legendary archipelago. But if the famed naturalist had donned diving gear, he would have found another incredible world beneath the waves—a vibrant ecosystem, now protected by the Galápagos Marine Reserve and home to more than 3,000 species. On a Lindblad-National Geographic expedition to Galápagos you’ll enjoy an in-depth 360° experience, giving you the incredible opportunity to discover the wealth of wildlife both on shore and below the waves. Here are a few of our favorite land and sea counterparts.
