    Cool. I was fortunate enough to visit the Galapagos 10 years ago and it was utterly captivating. Sitting on the beach on Hood Island watching the sealions, snorkelling over hammerheads, counting the finch variations...a truly life-affirming experience :)

    Big deal-a sleeping hare is way harder to find.
  3. Fantastic story, really cool.

    The Galapagos are on my "bucket list", I will get there one day...

    Have any of you read Vonnegut's book "Galapagos?"
    In 1000 years humans will evolve into seals and civilization will start again from the Galapgos Islands!

  16. In the summer of 2010, my family & I did took a trip to Ecuador with Adventures By Disney. It was 4 days in the highlands, north of Quito, and 4 days in the Galapagos, on a cruise/tourist ship.

    It was lots of fun, and a good way to see a lot of different things, some of them off the barely visible path. And it was well paced, given that Quito is about 8500 ft above sea level.

    I would recommend going.


    BTW: You can't just go cruising around the Galapagos by yourself. You have to be part of an organized tour with an authorized naturalist, etc.
