The magical underwater world of the Galapagos Islands
Scuba divers from all over the world flock to the Galapagos Islands.
Many enthusiasts claim that it is the home of the most breath taking diving in the world, and it is for good reason that they say this.
Home to some of the most diverse and unique life on the planet, the Galapagos are strange and fascinating, as well as strikingly beautiful.
Described by early explorers as harsh and barren, they were surprised to find such an abundance of life thriving there.
The Galapagos were made famous by Charles Darwin when he studied the animals and plants on these islands in 1835.
His discoveries led to some of the most groundbreaking ideas and theories of any biologists.
His theory of evolution was inspired by the birds and other creatures here.
Those same theories changed the way we look at our planet, the animals, and even ourselves.
