A Field Trip to The Galápagos with my 10-Year-Old Son
by Dale Wills (Publisher of InTheBite)
Upon receiving the invitation to visit San Cristobal, Galápagos from Juan Kayser and his Galapwonder Excursions, I immediately started to formulate a plan to include my son Zachary, who would turn ten just days before our departure. The trip took place February 25-March 2, 2020. With a little scheduling and a plan for school work, we were all set for our big adventure. Zachary certainly didn’t mind missing four days of class either. The trip would consist of flying just over four hours from Miami to Guayaquil, Ecuador. A one-night hotel stay in Guayaquil before we boarded a 1 hour 30 minute flight the following morning from Guayaquil to San Cristobal in the Galápagos. Elliott Stark, the editor of InTheBite, was along for the ride, too. The big plan was sightseeing day one, then two full days of fishing and one inshore day of snorkeling and bottom fishing.
From this point, I’ll share plenty of images on what turned out to a very rewarding and amazing trip. Zachary was able to reel in a couple of nice striped marlin, see a variety of plants and animals and discover a skate park on San Cristbal. Thanks again to everyone who made our trip one to remember. We saw a bunch of cool stuff- Darwin’s first island, animals and a skate park, now that’s evolution.
In the evening, Zachary learns to make pizza, (from scratch) – The Lobster Shack. Chef Willie was very helpful.
On behalf of Zachary, Elliott and myself, I’d like to say thanks again to Juan Kayser and the entire Galapwonder staff. Great times!
That’s all for now folks!
