Make Some Feathered Friends

Not all of the fascinating animals of the Galapagos are underwater. Some incredible creatures call the air above the islands home as well.

The Galapagos islands are habitat to numerous indigenous, endemic and migratory bird species. From the famous Blue-Footed Boobie to the elusive Pajaro Brujo, birdwatchers have plenty to pursue.

"Just got back from a 12-day trip to the Galapagos arranged thru Galapagos Alternative and everything was exceptional. From the tours, to the transfers, flights, and most importantly the people... everything was smooth. Highly recommend it!"
