Galapagos Gay & Lesbian Family Adventure – Bring The Kids!

Wander Among Unique Animals!

June 25-July 2, 2011

Amazing creatures, mystery, and beautiful seascapes create this unique corner of the world. Seemingly hidden from man for centuries, this series of islands remains relatively untouched. 600 miles off the west coast of Ecuador, the Galapagos Islands offer an unusual microscopic view of nature and natural selection in a nearly pristine state.

Charles Darwin, observed the potential scientific bonanza of the islands’ flora and fauna in 1835 and was inspired to write his famous thesis, “On the Origin of the Species by Means of Natural Selection.” Aside from a few roving pirates and buccaneers, the islands remain untouched by man.

Our naturalist guide will fill us in on the extraordinary variety of plants and wildlife as we visit and explore various islands. A birdwatchers paradise, there are 29 species of land bird found here and 22 of them are endemic to the islands. See the world’s smallest penguins, the bright red-chested frigate birds, the flightless cormorants, boobies, hawks, owls and lava gulls. In the sea, you’ll experience the wonder of watching giant sea turtles swimming to their homes, and sea lions playfully splashing as you snorkel along looking at multitudes of colorful fish. All this from the comfort of a modern and well appointed ship.


  • See exotic birds and wildlife in their native setting.
  • Visit the breeding grounds and sanctuary for giant green sea turtles.
  • Swim with sea lions and view an amazing bounty of fish and sea life.
  • Relax in a comfortable modern ship for four nights and enjoy the peace and quiet of these remote islands.
  • Hike along tidal lagoons, mangroves and bright, clean beaches.
  • Experience Darwin’s inspiration in a lovely and pristine setting.
  • We are holding a variety of cabins so please ask about cabin availability.
  • Our tour starts and ends in the vibrant port city of Guayaquil, Ecuador.
  • Ask about our post-cruise extension to Quito and the mountains of Ecuador.
  • Enjoy this once in a lifetime experience with a friendly group of gay families and friends. (Please note that this is not a charter, so our group will be among other passengers on this 90-passenger ship. Our group will be coordinated by a professional Alyson Family Adventures Tour Director.)
