Like the DVD says: "It's a real family treat" Images are so beautiful, I took a lot of image from the movie to use as wallpapers for my device. You can't never watch it too much

A few magnificent moments underwater can make it all seem worthwhile.

The film is intellectually intriguing and visually exciting, but literally and figuratively only occasionally plumbs the depths of its subject.

A film worth seeing.

For about the rental price of a snorkle and goggles "Galapagos" brings the experience to you - and you don't even have to get wet!

It's hard to resist the lumbering Galapagos tortoise, the skittering bright-orange crabs or the legions of proud black marine iguanas that sun themselves en masse on outcroppings of petrified lava.

As a medium for showing the study of evolution and biodiversity in this part of the world, this film can't be topped.

The IMAX format captures images at a far greater resolution than the standard cameras. This feature was digitally re-mastered from the original 70MM film format. The Smithsonian Institute produced a great winner here, and the underwater photography is fantastic! Once you see this film, you will understand why Ecuador protects this treasure of life on these isolated islands.

It is a very good video. It meant even more after we had been there. It also makes you want to go if you havan't. Wish I would have seen it in an IMAX Theater.

Personally, I didn't care for it that much. I've seen other Galapagos videos that focused more on the flora and fauna and not so much on submersibles. However, the kids that watched the dvd thought it was great. They enjoyed it. So, based on that I'll recommend it.

Excellent production values from a known company (IMAX). Will be suitable to show in classroom. Personally visited the islands and wanted an outstanding DVD to show to others.

I initially ordered this DVD for two reasons. One it is narrated by my favorite actor Kenneth Branagh. The other reason was I had fallen in love with the Galapagos Islands from watching "Master and Commander:Far Side of the Sea", which was the first movie filmed in that location. But delightfully this DVD stands on its own. After a few moments I was unaware of the narrator and lost in the wonders of the stunning visuals. The IMAX camera work, as usual, is so up close and personal, you feel you are there. I went to the bottom of an ancient cave, across a frozen lava flat, and descended 3,000 feet to the ocean floor with Dr. Carole Baldwin. There we discovered dozens of new species never seen by human eyes. My 16 year old son wandered into the room while I was watching and stayed to the end. He also was fascinated. Later my thirteen year old son watched it with me. We "Ooo-ed", "Ahh-ed" and laughed. It was a big hit in my house. I highly recommend it.

Personally, I was a little disappointed in this video, I didn't care for it that much. We have been to the Galapagos and have seen other Galapagos videos that have been much better. The BBC has an excellent video on the Galapagos. So, I can’t really recommend this one..

My grandson will love this for Xmas! He urgently, he lives in Panama. The IMAX feature, is a good value!

Wonderful. Recommend to everyone. I had no idea what a complex assortment of water and land inhabitants existed in this or any region of the world. This truly is an educational DVD that should be shown in schools. This DVD has the ability to spark interest and insight into the vast creations here on Earth.
