I had not seen before is that they have
the elephant feet so they really can’t swim, they could only really float and only for short periods of time because they will eventually sink but really what impressed me the most
about the Darwin Research Station is the program that they have, I mean the
whole country just in general how they protect their animals and because of the research that’s continuing on, they’re growing in numbers. The service is phenomenal.
Anything we want is there for us. And it’s very homey acutally I like that a lot we feel like one big
happy family and it’s just that I think the coziness of the whole trip is something that I won’t forget Ecoventura operates a fleet of three
identical first class motor yachts that carry twenty passengers each all of our vessels offer a high level of
personalized service and comfort Galapagos is one hour behind mainland
Ecuadorian time and we prefer to remain in galapagos on mainland Ecuador time because that
means our passengers will disembark one hour earlier than any other tour
boat in the islands and they have that time on land in peace and tranquility All of their mammals have two different
times for feeding in two different habitats they’re much better climbers you guys
they can walk on rocks with no problems whatsoever they’re used to this type of terrain One of the things that makes Ecoventura unique is is our seven night continuous
comprehensive itinerary we encompass the entire archipelago
visiting the northern, the central, the Western, and the
southern islands Those are the Albatross’ The way to tell the Albatross is the male is the one to perform the most. He’s the one most acting moving, making sounds while the
females is watching in the male Usually you don’t find this amount to
here but actually if you had a chance to walk along the whole coastline of this island you would be able to see thousands of them like I said before we estimate a number
over twelve thousand pairs I mean that’s 24,000 albatross on this island you look around over here… where in the
world can you can’t get so close to sea lions like over here? You know where
in the world can you swim with them It’s sea lions everywhere you look its
their beaches, it’s not mine but I’m actually feel like I’m a welcomed guest here There was two little puppies playing in the water and I got down really low and all of a sudden the water brought them in very
close to me and there we were like inches away and he touched me with his whiskers and smelled me and then I was shooting the other puppy and he was just staying right next to me just touching me I was like, this guys like my friend..
I have photographed animals in quite a few places, mainly in Africa, but what makes this special is you can get so much closer to the animal and you’re interacting with then.
It’s been such a wonderful experience something I’ll never forget.
The colors, the landscape the wildlife. I found the staff to be extremely nice very professional very accommodating.
Was very relaxing, and very nice intimate environment. And our nationalist he’s
fabulous, very well-educated very knowledgeable… great sense of humor. This surpassed my expectations of what it was looking forward to… it was
