Previous Testimonials:

“Our family spent a magical week surrounded by beauty and wonder while onboard WildAid’s Passion in the Galápagos Islands. The fragility of the Galápagos — as one of rarest ecosystems in the world — makes it a critical place to study and protect. Swimming with the turtles, sharks, sea lions, marine iguanas, and fish captivated us all, and our teenage kids could not have been more excited for these personal encounters. We also particularly enjoyed hiking and exploring nearby islands.

Onboard, every detail was thoughtfully considered and executed by the crew: the food superb, the accommodations luxurious, and the scenery some of the best in the world. Indeed, this once-in-a-lifetime experience brought our family together. We are pleased to support WildAid’s work protecting the Galápagos and their investments in local research and conservation efforts. This work, along with their demand reduction efforts, help relieve pressure on the sharks that call the Galápagos home. This is one of the wildest, most beautiful, and unique places in the world, and WildAid is helping to keep it that way.

Our only complaint was that we eventually had to say goodbye to the Passion and its crew, but we will return for another adventure in the Galápagos on WildAid’s Passion.” – Kristi Patterson, Galapagos 2018
