Take a dive into shining nature in two of Earth's finest masterpieces: their beauty and diversity are both mysterious and unsurprising.  We'll cruise the Galapagos, Darwin's 'Enchanted Islands', in our own enchanting style, aboard our private 82' catamaran. With a full crew, a chef, and a live-aboard naturalist, we'll hike the islands on our own    time, away from the crowds, we'll swim the waters with playful sea-lions and penguins, and we'll cruise the sea in luxury. Then travel by motor-launch and dugout canoe deep into Amazon rainforest to our private lodge. Each day with our dedicated naturalist we'll hike and canoe into this pristine wilderness to glimpse its spectacular variety of life.
