Enchanted Central Islands Luxury Exploration

A wonderful voyage around the Central Islands starting from San Cristobal. Each visit is carefully planned to allow the adventurous traveler to see the wonders of each site. This in the company of a friendly and knowledgeable naturalist guide.
Day 1: San Cristobal Island: Kicker Rock
In the morning, you will arrive on San Cristobal Island. After clearing immigration and baggage claim you will be met and transferred to your yacht by Natural Paradise staff. After completing immigration and baggage claim, you will be met by a Natural Paradise staff member who will take you to your cabin. There will be time for you to settle in before lunch.

Kicker Rock

This impressive rock formation can be found just a few hours from San Cristobal's western shore. The rocks rise vertically hundreds of feet from the water and are separated by a small channel. Visitors can spot many marine species by circumnavigating the area and taking a dinghy ride.
Day 2: North Seymour Island & South Plaza Island

North Seymour Island

North Seymour Island is home to magnificent frigate birds, Galapagos sea-lions, and blue-footed bobies. This beautiful island is known for its dry vegetation. You can enjoy a dinghy ride or hiking on it.

South Plaza Island

The small island is surrounded by Opuntia Cacti. It was created by rising lava. This island is home to the largest colonies of sea lions and colorful red and yellow land iguanas. Sesuvium is the most distinctive plant. Its color changes from a greenish-yellowish tone in the rainy season to a bright red during the dry season (end June through January).

Day 3: Rabida Island & Bartolome Island

Rabida Island

Rabida Island (Jervis), one of the archipelago's most beautiful and volcanically diverse islands, is a wonderful snorkeling spot. The island is home to a beautiful maroon sandy beach with stunning views of breathtaking landscapes. It is home to nine species of Galapagos Hawks, nine types of finches, brown pelicans and large-billed flycatchers.

Bartolome Island

You'll travel to Bartholomew Island, where you will find the Pinnacle Rock. Bartholomew is an extinct volcano that has a variety red, orange and black volcanic formations. You will be able to enjoy the most spectacular views of the islands by following a path of stairs up to the summit of this volcano. This will take about 30-40 minutes. A beautiful, small beach will be visited that is surrounded only by barren islands. This beach is ideal for snorkeling, where you might even swim with Galapagos penguins.

Day 4: Santiago Island: Sullivan Bay & Santa Cruz Island: Dragon Hill

Santiago Island: Sullivan Bay

You will be visiting Sullivan Bay, which is located in the southeast corner of Santiago. Because of the lava flows, this area is very interesting. The lava flows have created small volcanoes that rise to the top of the mountain.

Santa Cruz Island: Dragon Hill

Dragon Hill, located in northern Santa Cruz Island, is a visitors' spot that consists of a 1,600m long trail that passes through three environments. It is very rugged. It's great for snorkeling at high tide. This is where you will find the typical intertidal and dry zones of vegetation.

Day 5: Santa Cruz Island & Baltra Island: Twin Craters & Transfer out

Los Gemelos or the Twin Craters are found on opposite sides of the road from Puerto Ayora and Baltra. This name is a metaphor. These formations are not actually craters. They were formed by the collapse of underground material in fissures and chambers. It is stunning.

Continue on to Baltra Airport for your return flight to the Mainland.
