With kayaks at arms reach on the cruise ship, solo adventures are also encouraged.

After 8-days in the Galapagos, there will be plenty to talk about.

    Midday, visit Elizabeth Bay. You will experience a traditional panga (Zodiac ride) here, passing by the mangroves and wildlife that inhabits the bay. This area is known for its marine life. Make sure to look out for brown pelicans, Galapagos penguins, blue-footed boobies, and humpback whales.

What was once a popular place to find salt, food, and water, has now become a flocking nest for fur seals and marine birds. Next, head to Buccaneer Cove, a spot where pirates used to visit in the 16th-century, to stake out. Instead of finding pirates here, you will now find sea turtles. This is also a great place to snorkel.

    In the afternoon, visit Espumilla Beach. Walk along the beach, through a mangrove forest, until you find flamingoes, pintail ducks, and other wildlife. You can snorkel and swim at the beach.

    Marine Iguanas on the rocks of Espinosa Point
