Although the Galapagos can be visited all year round we recommend April as a particularly good time to visit especially if you have an interest in birdlife. The weather is also more agreeable as it sees sunny days and blue skies interspersed with showers.
The Galapagos Islands have approximately 29 types of land bird, and 19 types of sea bird which inhabit the islands. April is an excellent time to visit the Galapagos Islands to view the Blue-footed booby mating dance. This unusual courtship dance is one of the many wildlife attractions of this group of islands, and a fascinating ritual to watch.
Visit the Galapagos Islands on a first class cruise boat and witness fearless wildlife including sea lions, albatross, giant tortoises and blue-footed boobies.
