The Galapagos archipelago is one of the planet’s last wild and incredible places. Join us as we explore the islands and connect with wildlife, all while seeking solutions to local and global plastic pollution.
The Galapagos archipelago, on everyone’s bucket list, is one of the planet’s last wild and incredible places. Join us on the S/S Mary Anne Galapagos, a 66 meter barquentine as we explore these incredible islands and their marine habitats. We will walk on bare lava, come face to face with blue-footed boobies, wander the highlands for giant tortoises, swim with penguins and sharks, snorkel with green sea turtles and be surrounded by yellow-tailed surgeonfish.
But this isn't just a sight seeing tour... we'll be discussing global and local solutions to plastic pollution, and connecting with local environmental stewards and research groups throughout the trip. Through lectures, discussions and workshops we hope to empower each other and our communities to help heal our oceans from plastic pollution.
