Subjects : A trip to the Galapagos nature is practically a mystical experience for a photographer, not because of the variety of fauna but as for the completely different relationship that is established with it: it will be the only place where you will find limiting the minimum distance of focus of an average tele.Gli animals are absolutely calm and approachable not having known the man as hunter assiduous develop a natural curiosity about the photographers, be prepared to wait until one of them moves sluggishly out of your way to make you pass or not at all sports forcing you to wait a half hour. For the record, however, here is a list in no way exhaustive of what disponibileLeoni Marine, Land Iguanas, Iguanas Sea, Pelicans, Cormorants, Frigates, Boobies Blue Feet, Feet Sule Rossi, Albatros, penguins, flamingos, turtles, stingrays, barracuda , Dolphins, Whales, Mopule, Giant Land Turtles, Seals, Crabs Rossi, Bull Shark, Hammerhead Shark, Whale Shark, Sea Eagles,

Recommended equipment : As far as the equipment is the same argument made for subjects to photograph: there is no element left home that does not have to regret! Start from the fact that you will be faced with opportunities for every type and every moment of the day any surprises, night incl. So from macro to telephoto swivel, those better than me run a 300 duplicate freehand but I would certainly recommend the tripod; optical panoramic and finally an often underestimated. It is a photographic safari boat with practically unique opportunity to snap so I would definitely recommend your computer in order to check the results every evening of the day and maybe repeat the set the next day. Lastly, do not repeat DO NOT neglected a set of polarizers, you will come to incredible opportunities on the water. Same goes for underwater photography, it is not necessary to dive with tanks but just the fins and mask to see shows or unique to dance with the sea lions.

Best months : The seasons are opposite to ours practically even though the islands are on the equator. From December to May you will find yourself in front of the warm season (rainy) photographically THE BEST, in fact the climate is warmer and a few other side and the other will have blue skies and intense. As for the animals is the period June to November riproduttivo.Da the cold sea currents bring plankton and also fish, ideal time for whales, dolphins and birds fishermen; also this season and photographically THE BEST, in the sense you have different opportunities. Days tend to bring blankets and cold water, however, remarkable surprises.

How to get there : Practically impossible and not recommended DIY. Flights from Quito and Guayaquil (Ecuador). costs of Ecuador flights between 900 and 1400 € depending on the season, to which are added 300/500 € for the Galapagos. Organizing Ecuador is cheaper (much) but if you have limited time to find the right flight could be a risk. The best organizations are expensive and run out of places quickly. Key elements for the success of the trip are the choice of a cruise (at least 6 days) carrying out an interesting path, each island is characterized by a diverse fauna, highly recommended a path that reaches circumnavighi Fernandina and Isabela islands further west; being able to afford a little time also the islands to the north are beautiful and selvagge.Con a "small investment" a solution VERY interesting and rewarding is the double cross of two different paths for a total of two weeks in site.

Visits : The Galapagos is a national park, they work pretty much just for tourism organized and require a ticket of $ 100. They will be your best spending quite a bit of time.The islands and interesting sites can be visited ONLY with licensed operators, the quality you pay for and really makes a difference, a choice to save will only restrict yourself from the point of view of the opportunities . An investment in a spacious and comfortable boat, a guide prepared and an interesting itinerary will certainly be well rewarded.

Notes : Unbelievable but true, there are no web resources organized and well-managed, to 'era of my trip and this review of the best tools of knowledge and information are the result of the passion and the seriousness of some private agencies. Consider that the local operators and vessel owners do not have their own sales structures but rely on others to fill the trips. You can find considerable differences in price. In my experience as an agency on the other provided me with support and information in an effective and professional as you will quickly understand.
