In 1832, Floreana (Charles), was the first inhabited island. It had a record of a wild mix of colonists. In the thirties was the scene of a Hollywood mature drama, that attracts worldwide attention, several deaths and the disappearance of some, leaving an unfinished puzzle until today.
In the morning, we take a stroll to Punta Cormorant. After a wet landing on the beach, we go down 100 meters along a path that leads to a mangrove lagoon. This lagoon houses Galapagos ducks, black storks, gold sandpipers and oystercatchers. Hopefully we can also see flamingos. Another trail leads to a small beach, which is an important nesting site, from December to March of Pacifc sea turtles. Rays are often in shallow water and sometimes reef sharks white tip too.
Post Office Bay
Then, we visit the Post Office Bay, which keeps the legendary post barrel that, historically, the whalers used to send their mail. If you want, you can leave a letter here, hoping that reaches its destination by another tourist. Do not forget to bring postcards.
At Punta Cormorant and Post Office at the Bahia you can snorkel.
Dinner and overnight on board.
