Canoe & Kayak Magazine is alway a great source of paddling news and stories, and I especially like this one about Kayaking the Galapagos Islands. There are a lot of very cool places that would be fun to explore by kayak, but the Galapagos have to be pretty close to the top of that list. With their amazing scenery, vast array of wildlife, and crystal clear waters, the Galapagos seem taylor made to be paddled. You can paddle in the path of the HMS Beagle and follow Charles Darwin’s route as you explore the same islands he did back in 1835. Along the way you’ll see swimming lizards, sea turles, the blue footed boobie (I’m not making that one up! Promise!) and dozens of other species that exist no where else on Earth.
The Galapagos Islands are another one of those places that are high on my list to visit someday. Before I go, I want to learn to SCUBA dive, but after reading this article, I’m temped to kayak the islands as well. Sounds like an excellent trip.
