Day by day

Day 1 : Santa Cruz Island: Highlands & Twin Craters

AM: FLIGHT TO GALAPAGOS

Today marks the commencement of your journey to the Galapagos Islands. Please be advised that in accordance with the regulations set by the Galapagos Government, a fee of 20 USD is required for the migration control card.

Upon reaching Santa Cruz, passengers are obligated to undergo an inspection at the airport to ensure compliance with regulations prohibiting the introduction of foreign plants or animals to the archipelago. Furthermore, at this inspection point, passengers are required to make payments for entry into the Galapagos National Park, based on the following criteria as of September 2024: $200 for foreign passengers and $100 for children under 12 years old.

Our designated guide will meet you, taking charge of your luggage and assisting you to the bus that shuttles tourists to the ferries crossing the Itabaca Channel. Subsequently, another bus will transport you to the initial visit at Ranch Manzanillo. For this excursion, it is imperative that visitors wear comfortable walking shoes, lightweight clothing, a waterproof jacket, apply sunblock lotion, and carry a camera and repellent for the scheduled activities. The Ranch Manzanillo visit encompasses a picnic lunch, a brief walk, and culminates in boarding the Motor Catamaran. Adherence to these instructions is crucial for the seamless execution of this itinerary. Please note that passengers' luggage will be directly transferred to the Seaman Journey yacht.

Santa Cruz provides an excellent opportunity to observe the indigenous Galapagos Tortoises. Exploring the highlands offers more than just tracking tortoises, as there are numerous lava tubes, sinkholes, and craters awaiting exploration. Following this visit, the journey proceeds to the M/C Seaman Journey.

Day 2 : Isabela Island: Moreno Point & Fernandina Island: Mangle Point

AM: MORENO POINT, ISABELA ISLAND

Situated on the northern coast of Isabela Island, between the Sierra Negra and Cerro Azul volcanoes, lies Punta Moreno. The trail traverses a Pahoehoe lava flow, characterized by solidified lava in corrugated or accordion-like formations, leading to a network of coastal lagoons. Diverse bird species inhabit the vicinity, with the lakes and mangroves serving as habitats for various avian life.

PM: FERNANDINA ISLAND, MANGLE POINT

Located off the eastern coast of Fernandina, Mangle Point offers a remarkable snorkeling experience and the opportunity to navigate through a grove of mangrove trees aboard a panga or zodiac. A half-mile hike is also an option. During your ride, anticipate encounters with sea lions, tortoises, pelicans, rays, and an array of bird species that populate the area.
