Amazing Animals Exotic Encounters Unbelievable Adventures

Best Wildlife Trips for Families

On our trips your kids will see the most interesting local species as clearly and closely as we can safely approach them.  Encounter marine and land iguanas, colorful birds, lizards, marine turtles, tortoises, sea lions, colorful fish, and a dazzling array of coral on a family cruise to the Galapagos Islands.  Search the trails and waterways for manatees, caimans, quetzals, parrots, monkeys, sloths, river otters, and poison dart frogs on our Costa Rica Family Trip.   If your kids are old enough and you’re so inclined, you may have opportunities for more adventurous activities like hiking, canoeing, horseback riding, kayaking, snorkeling, swimming with sea lions, and zip lining. Our family wildlife trips are full of activities and fun but have the flexibility to accommodate any age group.  Contact us today to start planning your next family adventure.
