Española and Eastern Islands Deluxe 7-Days Boat Expedition

Española and Eastern Islands Deluxe 7-Days Boat Expedition
This 7-day journey is a memorable one, visiting the beautiful islands of Espanola, the Easter Islands and more. It's not too long or too short. This amazing itinerary is best enjoyed on a vessel that offers quality services and personalized attention, as well as the finest Ecuadorian cuisine, and crews with the most expertise and friendliness.

Day by day

Day 1 : Baltra Island & Mosquera Island

Friday: Baltra

After landing at Baltra island by air in the early morning, guests will transfer to the dock and board Santa Cruz II. After an introduction onboard, the guests are assigned their cabins, and invited to lunch.

PM: Mosquera Island

The Santa Cruz II departs after lunch and moves to a new location just 4 nautical miles from Baltra island, next to Mosquera, a tiny volcanic outcrop that lies between North Seymour and Baltra. Mosquera is a narrow and long sandbank surrounded by volcanic reefs. From the western side of the island, the excursion group can approach it. This is a shallow long reef that acts as a perfect hiding place for sea lions. Naturalist guides lead the guests to the colonies of sea lions after a wet land. They will learn about Galapagos' fragile terrestrial and marine ecosystems. This walk only requires walking a few hundred metres of flat, sandy dunes. The site allows visitors to try snorkeling!

Day 2 : San Cristobal Island: Cerro Colorado & Pitt Point

AM: Cerro Colorado

After breakfast guests disembark at Puerto Baquerizo Moreno (dry landing), the capital of the archipelago, then drive for 40 minutes to the southern coast. The Breeding Center at Cerro Colorado is home to highly endangered giant turtles that wander around in a deciduous rainforest. The forest is also home to many bird species, including the San Cristobal Mockingbird and San Cristobal Lava Lizard. Both are endemic to this island.

PM: Pitt Point

In the late afternoon guests disembark at Punta Pit, which is an eroded cone of tuff and has a scenic trail with spectacular views along the coast. The Galapagos is the only place where all three species of boobies are found in one location. The guests are invited to take a walk along the coastline or ride a dinghy. You can enjoy snorkeling, kayaking and swimming.
