Discover the Galapagos Islands aboard your private luxury yacht! Available yachts include power yachts and sailing yachts. The Galapagos Archipelago is situated 800 kilometers west of the Ecuadorian coast and lies directly on the equator. The archipelago encompasses over 50 islands of volcanic origin that are spread out over an area of about 4,500 square kilometers. There are 13 major islands, of which 5 are inhabited. The volcanic Galapagos platform originated probably not more than 15 million years ago and the oldest island not more than 2.4 million years ago. Volcanic eruptions still occur in the islands. Isla Fernandina and the Sierra Negra volcano on Isla Isabela have erupted within the past 10 years.
The Island’s interesting volcanic geology, as well as its rich flora and fauna have been admired and studied by numerous travelers, scientists, and nature lovers. Scientists are still faced with a mystery of how such a large diversity of species could develop in a remote location like the Galapagos Islands. On the Islands, a multitude of animals rarely seen by humans are romping about: the main reason for tourists and nature lovers to pay the Galapagos Islands a visit.
The Galapagos Islands won’t leave you untouched. Travel with us on a rented boat from Taylor’d Yacht Charters and have the journey of your lifetime amidst playful seals, elegant albatrosses, fiery red Sally Light-foot Crabs, and sneaky Frigate birds.
