Ecuadorean officials say a tour boat has capsized off the Galapagos Islands, killing a Danish man on board. Two Israelis that were on the boat were rescued.

Galapagos National Park spokeswoman Vanessa Garcia says a powerful wave flipped the small wooden vessel Friday night.

The body of 61-year-old Nils Aarsoe was found Saturday. The Danish Consulate confirmed his death, but could not give details on his hometown.

Garcia says six other tourists and five crew members were rescued and in good condition. The passengers included Aarsoe's wife and daughter, two Irish travelers and two Israelis.
