is, in some sense, one of the truest forms of adventure travel because
sea kayaking offers what is otherwise literally inaccessible. It's the
opportunity to paddle with orcas, weave between calving glaciers and
discover islands and coastlines without people - or even footprints.
Every sea kayaker seeks that pristine marine
environment, with calm inviting waters and intricate coast lines. The
Galapagos Islands live up to the dream of sheltered waters far removed
from the usual concerns. The skies are almost always sunny, and the
light sea breezes create that perfect air temperature which instantly
relaxes the body.
The ocean is an ever inviting turquoise blue. There
are crystal coves and mangrove
lagoons. But what will make your sea kayaking journey to Darwin’s
paradise truly exceptional are the many opportunities for close
encounters with wildlife.
The shores and coastal waters are quite literally
teaming with exotic and colorful creatures that have never learned to
fear humans. Galapagos is a place where you can paddle by playful
lions; glide above white-tipped sharks; watch
plummet into the sea. Without a doubt, one of the most intimate ways to
experience the Galapagos Islands is by kayak.
