North, West and Central Galapagos Islands cruise 8 days

North, West and Central Galapagos Islands cruise 8 days
This is an ambitious itinerary that takes you to remote tourist sites on uninhabited islands. The same itinerary takes you to Genovesa (Santiago, Santiago, Fernandina, and Isabela). It is difficult to top the number of wildlife encounters and visitor sites that include giant tortoises, giant cormorants, tropical penguins and marine iguanas. The Nemo II, a sailing catamaran, combines speed with stability.
