There are two types of turtles in the Galapagos. One is the land turtle. That turtle is slower than slow when it moves. The other turtle is a sea turtle. The sea turtles in the Galapagos are quite graceful as they swim and flip over in the shimmering water of the ocean. They also move rather quickly. While you may not be impressed with the land turtles, the sea turtles in the Galapagos will have you wanting to get closer every time you see one. Therefore, you must take the time to swim with sea turtles in the Galapagos. In fact, I think it is one of the best options for your next family vacation!
The native animals in the Galapagos are not afraid of humans. For some reason, they have no fear at all. You must be careful when you are near them. It is common to step without looking and squish an unsuspecting creature.
When you are out in the water, the sea turtles in the Galapagos can be seen everywhere. This is what makes it possible to swim with sea turtles when you are on a family vacation in the Galapagos.
The sea turtles in the Galapagos can swim deep in the water. But they love to get warm up near the surface when the sun is out. That is why during the day, you will find them within a few feet of the water’s surface. This is the perfect time to swim with the sea turtles, because you can get really close to them.
You can swim with the sea turtles in the Galapagos on your own. But if you want the best experience, I recommend taking one of the many tours that are offered. If you are not a fan of swimming, I can always arrange for a kayaking tour amongst all the sea turtles in the Galapagos. And if you want more than swimming, we can set up a snorkeling adventure for your family vacation. The possibilities are almost endless when it comes to spending time with the sea turtles.
When you are not out swimming in the water with the sea turtles in the Galapagos, you should spend a little time exploring the Charles Darwin Research Station. You can learn so much about the native wildlife and marine life there. It will only enhance your entire Galapagos sea turtle experience and give you the perfect family vacation!
Let me know when you are ready to pack your bags and head off to a bucket list destination! The Galapagos are waiting for you and so are the sea turtles that swim in the waters there! I can plan your family vacation and make sure everyone has something they love to do included. This will ensure less eye rolls and groans and more fun and magical memories.
