Itinerary B
Embark on the Expedition Cruise to uncover the wonders of Galapagos wildlife. Fernandina, the youngest island, will astonish you with its rugged, lava-covered terrains, shaped by ongoing volcanic activity, giving it an otherworldly appearance. Isabela, the largest island in the archipelago, presents opportunities for incredible hikes, breathtaking vistas, and unparalleled snorkeling experiences. Rabida is a prime location to observe untamed Flamingos and take leisurely strolls along a red-sand shoreline. On Santa Cruz, witness the majestic Galapagos Giant Tortoises and delve into their preservation. Santiago, once a pirate haven, offers hiking and dinghy rides amidst its historical landscape.

Day by day

Day 1 : Baltra Island & Santa Cruz Island

Baltra airport. Arrival at the airport. Transfer to the hotel. Galaxy II Cruise welcomes you. Lunch and welcome drink. Charles Darwin Station can be found in Santa Cruz Island's Main Port. We will then take our bus to enter the breeding center where we see tortoises in captivity and land iguanas. This center is the primary breeding site for the islands. The animals that are in danger of being extinct in different islands, are kept in captivity. Thanks to the dedicated work of many institutions certain species are saved. Here was the famous tortoise Solitary George the last survivor in Pinta Island.

Day 2 : Isabela Island: Tintoreras & Moreno Point

Tintoreras

This small island is located in Puerto Villamil bay, surrounded by turquoise water and a beautiful landscape. The fauna on the island is also very fascinating. We will also see a large number of Marine Iguanas basking under the sun. Other animals we may encounter are lava lizards (which can be seen on the island), herons (as well as gulls), and sea-lions. Sea Turtles are often found in the sheltered coves. Rays, and sometimes even Penguins can be seen. In the cracks and channels along the coastline, we may see White-tipped Reef Sharks ("Tintoreras", in Spanish). We will then return to our boat for breakfast before continuing the journey to the next destination.

Moreno Point

We will depart from Moreno Point, which is near Elizabeth Bay and located on the western coast of Isabela Island. Birdwatchers will be delighted by the plethora birds they can see on a boat ride or hike through the lava rocks leading to mangroves and tide pools. You can see white-tip or green sharks in the tide pools.
