Galapagos Islands Last-Minute Cruise
Are you looking for a last minute cruise to discover the Galapagos Islands Archipelago? This is a great option that will take you around the main islands to discover the beauty of this place.

Galapagos Islands is located in the Pacific Ocean at about 1,000km away from the South American continent. These 19 islands and the surrounding marine reserve have been called a unique ?living museum and showcase of evolution?.

Located at the confluence of three ocean currents, the Galapagos are a \"melting pot\" of marine species. Ongoing seismic and volcanic activity reflect the processes that formed the islands. These processes, together with the extreme isolation of the islands, led to the development of unusual animal life such as the land iguana, the giant tortoise and the many types of finch. These animals inspired Charles Darwin?s theory of evolution by natural selection after his visit in 1835.
