Our Senior Customer Relations Representative, Katie, and Program Coordinator, Amanda, recently explored the Galápagos Islands on tour. Here's what they had to say about the fun and interesting creatures they spotted on the islands.
On Friday morning we landed in Sullivan Bay on the island of Santiago, also known as James Island. I immediately felt at home. Here was a relatively young island; still shaking off the ashes of its volcanic birth; still relatively barren.
When Charles Darwin first arrived in the Galápagos, he wasn't sure what he'd discover. Once on the islands, he found an amazing diversity of animals that left him wondering how some animals could appear so similar at first glance, yet are so different on closer inspection.
When Go Ahead's Avery J. embarked on our Galápagos Islands & Ecuador tour, she thought she had an idea of the natural wonders she'd see. But from her first step on the Galápagos, she realized that nothing could have prepared her for the stunning diversity of these isolated islands.
