The Galapagos Islands

Traveler looking face to face with seal on beach.

A little world within itself

Join UB alumni, family and friends as we explore the extraordinary archipelago Charles Darwin called “a little world within itself.”

Feel the thrill of encountering the flora and fauna that famously inspired Darwin and generations of nature lovers in his footsteps. Undiscovered by Europeans until the 16th century, the Galapagos Islands hold a central position in modern scientific and evolutionary history. In a place where human presence is relatively minimal, take the opportunity to observe and photograph these remarkable species up close—either sitting quietly to watch blue-footed boobies, or snorkeling with inquisitive and playful sea lions.

Our home for our adventure is the Isabela II. With a capacity of only 40 guests, the newly refurbished 183-foot Isabela II was designed to provide the ultimate in comfort and adventure while cruising the Galapagos Islands. Her 21 staterooms provide spacious, fully air-conditioned accommodations with en suite facilities.
