For those of you who don’t believe the old saying, “once in a lifetime opportunity,” this offer from ROW Adventures may make you want to reconsider…

Check out this wonderful 6 and 7-day trip aboard the M/S Encantada to the Galapagos Islands with adventure travel company ROW Adventures on highly-desirable winter vacation dates, December 24th and 28th. The 6-day trip is priced at just $1890 and the 7-day trip is only $2080 per person*. It’s the perfect way to spend your winter break. *Round-trip airfare from Ecuador to the Islands is included along with two hotel nights in Guayaquil. Booking deadline August 25, 2011.

From the boat owner, “Built in 2009, the M/S Encantada motor sailboat offers one of the truly most unique and exciting cruises in the Galapagos Islands. This romantic, cherry-red schooner holds no more than 12 passengers in 6 double cabins all equipped with air conditioning, private bathrooms, and hot water, making it the perfect size for families, couples, or any travelers that desire a more intimate and comfortable setting and a high level of personal attention and service.”

But, they only have until August 25th to secure these dates…and no, this is not a “sales trick.” If you ever dreamed of going to the Galapagos (or going back), but you couldn’t afford it or couldn’t find the time, this offer may help you seal the deal.
