Itinerary A

The Southeast Galapagos cruise schedule involves stops at 9 different islands and a diverse range of experiences, such as engaging in hikes, snorkeling, and touring the Charles Darwin Station. This presents opportunities to observe a variety of animals like sea lions, marine iguanas, blue-footed boobies, frigatebirds, and Galapagos penguins. Moreover, the itinerary is crafted to provide insights into the ongoing conservation endeavors dedicated to safeguarding the Galapagos Islands.
Day 1: San Cristobal Island & Lobos Island

San Cristobal airport. Airport reception Transfer in. Welcome aboard Galaxy Cruise. Enjoy a welcome drink and lunch.

Lobos Island

This area is home to seals, finches and frigates. You can also snorkel and swim in this area.

Kicker Rock

This formation is made up of two rocks approximately 148m high above the sea level. We will travel between them but not disembark as it is impossible.

Day 2: Española Island: Gardner Bay & Suarez Point

Gardner Bay

Bahia Gardner is our first stop today. The Galapagos sea lion is a popular animal that draws the attention of visitors to the Galapagos.

They are playful and curious, and sometimes aggressive. Many of them will be found at Gardner Bay enjoying the sun and relaxing on the beaches. We will snorkel in the area that they will allow us to swim with them. In addition to observing these amazing animals, we will also swim with sea turtles and marine iguanas. We will then return to the ship to sail towards the next island. Lunch.

Suarez Point

Dry landing. Activities that were done in this area: Walking; recommended clothes: Sports shoes, hats, caps, solar lotion. The blue-footed boobies are the most striking and remarkable color on this tropical island. They have a unique form of "greeting" which is quite impressive and is an amazing spectacle to witness the ritualistic parade. Because nests and feed can be found in many places near the coast, we can see this bird on several islands. This is where you can see the Albatross, which weighs between three and four kilograms and has a height of over two meters. It is a creature of aristocratic nature. There are approximately twelve thousand nests on Espanola Island, with a few nests on Silver Island. This species is considered to be endemic on this island. We will have the opportunity to see these amazing birds during our walk.

Important note: Albatross is not visible between January and March. We will also see colonies of marine iguanas and zayapas as well as mask boobies, finches and Espanola cucuves. We will walk along lava rock paths, where we can admire hollow blowers. This island's vegetation is red mangrove. You can expect delicious snacks and refreshing beverages.

Day 3: Floreana Island: Punta Cormorant & Post Office Bay

Post Office Bay

Post Office Bay will be our first stop. It is located to the north of Floreana Island. The Post Office Bay name derives its existence from Capitan James Colnett who installed an empty Ron barrel to serve as a post office for the whaling vessels that used the Galapagos Islands for a long period. You can exchange letters to send your loved ones or send them postcards. Return. You will find delicious snacks and drinks waiting for you at lunch.

Punta Cormorant

This point is west of Floreana Island. It is known for its dark green beaches due to the large amount of olivine crystals. There are many marine invertebrates to be seen, along with sea lions and sea iguanas as well as the frigates, pelicans, and sea lions.

Devil's Crown

You can also go on a panga ride or swim. Panga ride on a small island. This was once a satellite island of Floreana. Due to the constant erosion of the sea, this group of rocks will look like a crown. This is a good spot to snorkel (superficial diving), as it offers excellent visibility and allows you to see a wide variety of sea creatures.

Day 4: Santa Fe Island & South Plaza Island

Santa Fe Island

It measures 24 Km2 in area and is 60m above the sea level. One of two land iguana species that live on the island are found here. Their main food is the large, thick cactus leaves and fruits. You will see nocturnal herons as well as crabs, cucuves, land doves, and marine iguanas. It is a great place to snorkel and swim in the Bay. Amazing attractions include marine tortoises, sea lions, and tropical fishes. You can expect snacks and refreshing beverages onboard. Lunch. Navigation toward South Plazas Island.

South Plaza Island

These are two small islands created by land uplift. Land iguanas tend to be smaller than they used to be. They nest in warm periods. This hike takes you along a spectacular cliff where seabirds nest. There are approximately 1000 sea lions in this island (Zalophus wolbaeki). They are found in the south side of Plazas.

Day 5: Santa Cruz Island – Transfer out

Breakfast is taken very early in the morning. We eat breakfast very early in morning. Our last visit to Charles Darwin Station was in the Main Port on Santa Cruz Island. We will then take our private bus to the entrance to the center of breeding. This is the main place for breeding the islands' tortoises. The preservation of endangered species in different islands is possible thanks to the dedicated efforts of many institutions. This was the place where the Solitary George, the most famous tortoise of Pinta Island, lived. Transfer out
