My Lindblad National Geographic Galapagos trip was one of the best in my life and I have traveled over the world. Snorkeling was available almost every day at sea. I am sorry that I don't know about scuba diving. I also don't know about bringing your own wine and liquor. I was on the Islander ship. The wine was very reasonably priced and easily available in the lounge every late afternoon and evening. Lynn Fowler was our lead and I hope to go back again and will book with her as lead again. Lynn is great but she had assembled an amazing set of field guides who were just so knowledgeable about the arcane, the mundane, the every day culture as well as the history. The night sky was unbelievable. The Islander has many quiet places on the upper decks to relax with wine/cocktail and amazing views. But more than anything, I was moved by the experience of seeing this amazing place at the crossroads of evolution. I wish that I had bought the Panama hat, more hand carved boobies and penguins, and a hoodie. I immediately wished I had these things once I got home! I flew into and out of Quito and enjoyed that city on both ends of the trip. We stayed at the Jimenita Birdwatching Reserve and enjoyed it very much. I also reviewed that as a place to stay in Quito. Bring a warm sweatshirt and gloves/socks for snorkeling if you tend to get cold. This is the trip of a lifetime.
