Will I see Galápagos Penguins on my cruise?
Galapagos penguins are only found here on the archipelago. As well as being a unique native species, these Galapagos favorites are also record-breakers, being the most northerly penguin species in the world. In fact, some colonies in the northern parts of the islands are technically living in the northern hemisphere.
If you choose a Galapatours cruise that takes in Bartolome, Fernandina and Isabela Islands then you will definitely see Galapagos penguins as their colonies are most concentrated here. At certain sites, you may be able to get into the water and snorkel with them, which is certainly the experience of a lifetime.
