In total, we saw 51 species of birds including 21 endemics—birds you can see nowhere else on Earth—and 12 endemic subspecies—while the species may be found elsewhere, the subspecies can only be seen in Galápagos—an example is the Yellow Warbler. There were 10 of the iconic Darwin’s finches including Woodpecker Finch and Warbler Finch with their easily distinguished bills and behaviors. Added to this, tortoise, whales, sea lions, iguanas and more made for a magical adventure of a lifetime.

We invite you to download our full trip report and the complete list of species seen on this trip.
