On this photo tour you will have lots of time and opportunities with Blue-footed Boobies, 2 species of Frigatebirds, Marine and Land Iguanas, Galapagos Sea Lions, Galapagos Tortoises (in the wild) and many other species of birds including many of Darwin’s finches. We will have a day trip to visit Hood Island and photograph the nesting Galapagos Albatrosses. On Isabela Island we should have some nice opportunities with Galapagos Penguin and we will try for Galapagos Hawk as well as Galapagos Rail. The vast majority of the wildlife in the Galapagos is tame, so you don’t need a monster lens, I use an intermediate zoom most of the time. During your extra day in Quito you will be staying at a lodge where you can photograph hummingbirds. This is a hotel based Galapagos photo tour. We will stay in highly rated hotels on 3 different islands, San Cristobal, Isabela and Santa Cruz and visit several other islands on this tour. Staying in lodges versus on a boat gives us the advantages of being able to spend more time at the right time of day for photography in many locations and it gives us more comfort with larger rooms. It’s also much less expensive for those wanting a single room.
