Join Global Family Travels and photographer Lisa Merrill to explore and photograph one of the most amazing places in the world, The Galapagos Islands! We’ll enjoy close encounters with wildlife that aren’t afraid of humans, including the giant tortoise, brightly colored marine iguana, and distinctive blue-footed booby, and see the magnificent frigatebird with its giant red throat pouch. Swimming, snorkeling, hiking and photographing in the Galapagos while strengthening family bonds is an experience-of-a-lifetime.
The Galapagos Islands are filled with exciting photo opportunities, and Lisa offers optional hands-on photo instruction throughout the trip. With her guidance and encouragement, you’ll cultivate your creativity and return with new skills and a wonderful collection of images to treasure and share with family and friends. Note: This Galapagos trip is an extension to our Mainland Ecuador Photography trip, or ask us to customize this trip without photo instructions.
