A CRUISE THROUGH THE GALAPAGOS ARCHIPELAGO
-
Afterwards, the unique Galapagos Islands await you.

There is probably no other place in the world that can so vividly illustrate the genesis of the earth and its creatures.

Even Charles Darwin admired the two-legged or four-legged adaptation artists: iguanas, which developed webbed feet between their toes and can thus hunt under water for an hour.

Penguins that strayed into the tropics and cormorants whose wings regressed to stubs because they apparently didn't need them. These are all prime examples of the Darwinian theory of evolution, which the young English scientist used to shake up the biblical creation story after his trip to the Galapagos Islands.

Impressive is also the great trustfulness of the animals, which already the Spanish bishop Tomas found worth mentioning 300 years before Darwin. With a little luck, you too will be circled by curious sea lions as you take a dip in the Pacific Ocean.

The volcanic archipelago will make you feel like you're in another world, even if it's no longer the world Charles Darwin found when he visited in 1835.

You will get to know the still fascinating archipelago, which consists of 13 large, 6 medium and over 40 small islands, from aboard the luxurious mega-catamaran M/Y Ocean Spray.

The ship offers its guests the utmost luxury and comfort in its eight cabins, all equipped with private bathrooms, air conditioning and balconies. With the M/Y Ocean Spray you will visit the remote islands of one of the last natural wonders of our earth - a very special experience.
