Itinerary - 4 Days

Day 1 :

Baltra - Puerto Ayora - Santa Cruz Highlands

You will arrive at the Baltra Airport where an organized transfer to Puerto Ayora will be waiting for you. After settling in your cabin and having lunch on board, you are ready to start the cruise's first visit!

Santa Cruz Island, Puerto Ayora, and Charles Darwin Research Station: Puerto Ayora is a small charming town, the largest in the Galapagos, and the head of tourism. There are several hotels, bars, restaurants, banks, many small shops, and a hospital. In Puerto Ayora are also the Galapagos National Park's offices and the Charles Darwin Research Station.

Santa Cruz Highlands: The drive up to the highlands takes approximately half an hour. Throughout this short drive, you will be able to observe the changes between the different vegetation zones, from the Arid zone to the Transition zone, and up to the Scalesia zone, which is also agricultural. Here, the introduction of animals and plants is pretty noticeable. On the highest point of the road, the National Park area starts again.

In the highlands, we will visit the Rancho Primicias to enjoy the Galapagos tortoises that live there in the wild; they are easy to spot there because they are usually refreshing in the water pools or taking a snore in the shadow.

Then, we will head to the Angelito yacht to have a good night's sleep!


Day 2 :

Española Island, Gardner Beach, and Suarez Point

After an early breakfast, we will visit Española Island. Española belongs to the oldest islands of the Galapagos. Because of its geographic isolation, many endemic species can be found here. Additionally, Española is the only place worldwide where the endemic waved albatrosses come to breed from April to December.

Gardner Beach: We have a wet landing on a splendid, long, white coral sand beach. Here, you won't need shoes as there is no trail. You will have the opportunity to observe finches and mockingbirds in the saltbush vegetation, as well as Galapagos sea lions.

It is an excellent place for swimming and snorkeling!

Suarez Point: After lunch on board, we will go to Punta Suarez. This activity consists of a rocky trail where you will see Española marine iguanas, mockingbirds, lava lizards, and Galapagos Sea Lions. This trail leads us to the nesting colonies of blue-footed boobies, Nazca boobies, and albatrosses. Return to the cruise and dinner.

Our next stop is at the blowhole: the waves push the seawater through a cliff fissure, depending on the strength and tide level, it can reach up to 80 feet/24m high in the air!

Then, we will return to the Yacht to have dinner and rest.


Day 3 :

Santa Fe and South Plaza

AM - Santa Fe: After an early breakfast, we will land at Santa Fe Island, home to a large sea lion colony. The trail takes us through the Arid zone of dry vegetation and to a beautiful cliff with prickly pear cactuses where you will be able to see Santa Fe's endemic land iguanas!

If you want to, you can do a snorkeling activity here.

PM - South Plaza: After lunch on board, we will land at South Plaza Island where we will get the chance to spot another sea lion colony as well as a land iguana colony.

After this activity, we will head back to the Yacht to have dinner and rest.


Day 4 :

Black Turtle Cove - Baltra

AM- Black turtle cove and Baltra: On the last day, before having breakfast, we will enjoy a panga ride to the protected mangrove cove. Once we arrive we will turn off the panga's engine in order to observe marine turtles. They can be seen throughout the entire year, especially during their mating and nesting season which goes from December to February! We will also see golden rays, spotted eagle rays, white-tipped reef sharks, and Galapagos Sharks.

Finally, we will have breakfast on board, say goodbye to the staff, disembark, and take a bus ride to the airport.
