Dive into the ociean with flightless cormorants and swim with tiny penguins thousands of miles from their natural habitats.

Around the archipelago, converging cross-winds and deep, cold, nutrient-rich currents have made possible a unique and bio-diverse marine oasis, which boasts everything from abundant microscopit plankton to Galapagos sharks. "Galapagos:Nature's Wonderland" is life in stunning IMAX. You're invited to explore these extraordinary and enchanted islands, whose remarkable inhabitants helped change the way we understand nature.
