Sea-kayak Trip in Galapagos


Recommended Posts

I was looking at the NYTimes website this morning, and they've posted a travel-related article regarding sea-kayaking in the Galapagos Islands. Seems to be run by a commercial vendor, and is a bit pricey. I think this link will take you there, should you care to read it: http://travel2.nytimes.com/2006/01/08/trav...pagos.html?8dpc

Explorer's Corner also runs trips with kayaking, based on a catamaran. It is a bit more expensive but I suspect the food is better. :-)) See this report: http://www.paddling.net/places/galapagos.html

I went to Galapagos in 1992 and spent 4 nights on the largest of the tourist boats (about 100 people). I was in Equador for a conference and Galapagos was a post-conference add on. The trip of a lifetime - I still hope to get back. To get from island to island you either need a boat or a plane. I think I would prefer a boat as a base -- move into your cabin and that is it for the trip -- rather than the constant schelping require for all those short flights. The boat travels while you sleep.

None of these trips are about kayaking, per say. Kayaks or the small dinghies that other companies use are just vehicles to get you close for wildlife viewing.

I really question how "low impact" sleeping on a beach with turtles is.
