Overview


Destinations:

Enjoy an exclusive seven-night charter of the 18-cabin Coral I, a boutique expedition yacht exploring the Galápagos.

Experience a fascinating educational exploration with your Yale Study Leader, Casey Dunn and enriched by a youth coordinator and three expert local naturalist guides. Make two landings each day (in the morning and afternoon) with a delicious lunch on board in between. Throughout the cruise, the youth leader will conduct fun-filled, interactive learning activities for children of all ages. Snorkel and kayak among playful and curious sea lions by day and stargaze from deck at night. Marvel at wildlife, such as giant tortoises, marine and land iguanas, penguins, blue-footed, red-footed and Nazca boobies, frigatebirds, mockingbirds, and the finches that made Darwin famous.

Visit San Cristobal, Espanola, Floreana, Santa Cruz, Genovesa, Rabida and Bartolome islands, each with its endemic species that have evolved differently from species on neighboring islands. Learn about the Galápagos Islands’ giant tortoises with visits to the Highlands Tortoise Reserve, Charles Darwin Research Station, and the Fausto Llerena Breeding Center.
