Hi all,

Thanks again to everyone who has responded to me.  I now have a few books,
boats and agents recommended to me which is what I was after.  For those
interested the advice has boiled down to:

1. Go on a small boat (around 10-16 berths/20-32 people is ideal)
2. Work out what you want to see, and which islands you need to go to for
them - e.g. it seems most boats do not go to the islands with Flightless
Cormorants on them
3. Find a reputable company that goes to the islands you want, make sure
they have a good guide on board
4. Be prepared to pay a lot of money to get what you want, these trips are
not cheap
5. Go on a small boat

If anyone has any more suggestions of boats or tour companies that have
worked for them in the past for the Galapogas I'd love to hear them.
