Wildlife

“Definitely a reason for the adage 'trip of a lifetime'! Every adventure was fascinating—snorkeling with sharks, sea lions, colorful fish,marine iguanas, penguins and turtles; being so close to tortoises, many many birds, land iguanas and sea lions on the comfortable hikes; kayaking in the mangroves alongside mating turtles. MT Sobek has scoped out the best of the best in Galapagos!”

"I would ABSOLUTELY recommend this trip. It was well planned and organized, and I saw some amazing things—whales, dolphins, sea lions...and more. It was a phenomenal vacation!"

Tracy S.

MT Sobek Guest, Ecuador Galapagos Adventure Cruise

“This trip was so far beyond our expectations. At the end of the first day, after a spontaneous swim with more than 3 dozen dolphins and having had a baby sea lion lick her toe, our 10-year-old daughter said, “this is the best day of my life.” It was all gravy from that point, and just kept getting better. Thank you, MT Sobek!”

“If you’re going to the Galapagos this is the only way to go. A small group, ensuring getting the most out of every moment of this unforgettable trip. You can choose to be active or relax on board, have a drink, read a book or just look at the amazing views. You won’t have to leave the boat to see wildlife, it’s all around you. Great trip, I have recommended this trip with MT Sobek to all my friends!”

He has a great ability to impart his knowledge of the Galapagos, but also to regale us with entertaining anecdotal stories that enhance the experience. He has a knack for making every person on the trip feel as if they are the most important. I hope to return to the Galapagos on a future trip with more of my family.”

Tara S.

MT Sobek Guest, Ecuador Galapagos Adventure Cruise

"We had a wonderful experience with MT Sobek on our Galapagos Wildlife Adventure. We traveled with our three teenage kids and our experience with the animals was nothing short of remarkable. We traveled the Eastern Islands where we swam with sharks and rays, and walked with the giant tortoises and iguanas. A variety of birds and their offspring surrounded us on every island. Our kids loved swimming with the sea lion pups up close and personal. The Eco Galaxy was clean and comfortable with great food, and the crew was terrific making sure all our needs were met. Overall it was a once in a lifetime experience, and memorable for all!"
