Galápagos Giant Tortoises [01:34]
Visited the Galápagos in Feb 2013, I was particularly enchanted with the amazing Giant Tortoises. They are so huge, so slow, and so cool. Here's a bit of vid...
Let my daughter take you on a tour to The Galápagos Islands and Ecuador [22:09]
My daughter took 10 days to tour The Galápagos Islands and Ecuador. She took some video footage with her amateur under water camera. Enjoy the beauty of the Galápagos Islands and Ecuador. She was willing to share this footage with me and the rest of the world. No animals were harmed with the filming for this video the dolphins were chasing the boat and not the boat chasing the dolphins.

Galapagos Islands ... a short stay! [04:46]
Another part of our South American adventure in October 2011 was a visit to the Galapagos Islands, nearly 700 miles off the coast of Ecuador. It really is the most wonderful part of the world, virtually unspoiled and a magical environment for seeing nature and wildlife in it's element. We stayed for 3 nights aboard the Santa Cruz and visited 6 of the main islands. Enjoy John O'Brien PS This was shot on an i-phone so the quality isn't great, the camera judder is inevitable when used hand held.

"Tortugas, iguanas, marine lobos and more" Katandsuren's photos around Galapagos Islands, Ecuador [02:37]
A TripAdvisor™ TripWow slideshow of a travel blog to Galapagos Islands, Ecuador by TravelPod blogger Katandsuren titled "Tortugas, iguanas, marine lobos and more...." Katandsuren's travel blog entry: "We've just returned to Quito after spending 12 amazing days in the Galapagos Islands! The interaction with wildlife is truly unique as (especially on the uninhabited islands) the animals have no natural fear of humans. The result is that we could get very close to the wildlife - often needing to jump out of the way of sea lions shuffling along the beach or stop in our tracks to let an albatross waddle across our path!! Being able to snorkel within touching distance of a group of sea turtles whilst they happily munched on seaweed was an incredible experience as they weren't fussed by our presence at all. Another highlight was snorkelling with sea lion pups which was an amazing experience as they were so playful and inquisitive. Whilst observing the wildlife and taking in the scenery we had to watch our step so as not to tread on the iguanas (both marine and land) that were everywhere. Anyway as the cliché goes a picture tells a thousand words so with this entry we've uploaded lots of pics and a couple of short videos of the highlights (keep an eye out for the body surfing sea lions and the angry giant tortoises) and have also uploaded another set of pics for anyone may want to see more. Our 6am flight from Quito via Guayaquil to Baltra (the main airport island of the ...

"No hay lugar como Galapagos" Suenson_taylors's photos around Galapagos Islands, Ecuador [02:38]
A TripAdvisor™ TripWow slideshow of a travel blog to Galapagos Islands, Ecuador by TravelPod blogger Suenson_taylors titled "No hay lugar como Galapagos!" Suenson_taylors's travel blog entry: "Our trip to the Galapagos has been a magical and unforgettable experience. The islands are renowned for the fearless wildlife that roam and swim about but no amount of knowledge can prepare you for the endless encounters with the wildlife here. We are guests in their home -- it's very humbling. We've been snorkelling with sealions, penguins, turtles, sharks, rays and an enormous array of fish. We have been walking amongst iguanas, giant tortoises, flamingos, birds of all species, lava-flows, lagoons and more sealions! The Galapagos is a series of volcanic islands that has not been connected with the continent for millions and millions of years. Almost all the wildlife, both animals and plants, over many hundreds of thousands of years have somehow migrated there and adapted themselves to the Galapagos conditions and become more and more diverse from their continental ancestors. This speciation within the archipelago was recognised by Charles Darwin when he visited the Galapagos on the Beagle in 1835 and his observations then played a substantial part in formulating his theory of evolution -- popularly known as 'The Origin of Species'. Lying on the equator 970km west of the Ecuadorean coast the Galapagos consists of 6 main islands, 12 smaller islands and over 40 islets. Nowadays the ...
