The Galapagos Islands

Islands

Millions of viewers tuned in each week to watch as Sir David Attenborough guided us through some of the most incredible natural habitats on Earth in BBC series Planet Earth II. If you didn't miss an episode, perhaps consider including some of the programme's filming locations on your next superyacht itinerary.

1. The Galapagos Islands

In the program:

Perhaps one of the most talked about events from the show was the Galapagos racer snakes hunting down hatchling marine iguanas — the crew managed to capture scenes of the baby iguanas emerging from under the sand and scurrying to meet their parents at the edge of the Pacific Ocean.

How to visit: Visiting the UNESCO World Heritage site by superyacht is difficult, but not impossible, especially as there are now luxury charter yachts available in the Galapagos Islands, complete with professional guides. The national park service regulates visitors on the islands, therefore tours and dives must be organised through local companies.

What to see: The Galapagos is famous for its mixing pot of wildlife — look out for the extraordinary numbers of hammerhead sharks and eagle rays, as well as the marine iguana, the Galapagos tortoise, the endemic flightless cormorants, the Galapagos land iguanas and the green sea turtles.
