The Galapagos Islands are known for their vast wildlife, both under sea and on land. The National Park has done an incredible job of preserving these islands and a vacation here is a treat for all ages, families and activity levels to visit. You can enjoy a luxury cruise for a week, where everything will be planned out for you, or stay on one of the islands in a local bed and breakfast and adventure out on day trips to the different islands.
No matter where you go, or how you choose to vacation one thing will always be true, the Galapagos Sea Lions will be everywhere. We quickly fell in love with the massive, loud, lovable animals! Here is a photo essay of a few places you will find them!
They will be sleeping EVERYWHERE!
When you hear them talk to each other it sounds like the morning after a big fraternity party – a chorus of people throwing up. Don’t believe me? Go visit for yourself!
Good luck finding an open bench, it’s one of their favorite lounging spots.
Our favorite memories surround snorkeling with the sea lions. They are the most playful animals we have ever been around!
