Day by day

Day 1 : Santa Cruz Island: Charles Darwin Station

Departure from Quito/Guayaquil to Baltra island (2 1/2 hours flight). Our natural guides pick up passengers at the airport and take them to the bus stop to board the M/Y Coral I/M/Y Coral II.

Charles Darwin Station

Dry landing. As part of our efforts for preservation of the fragile Galapagos environment, we visit the Station where the Galapagos giant turtle breeding program takes places. We also visit the Station where Lonesome George, the last living specimen of his species, lived for many decades.
You can see a variety of Darwin's finches, as well as a prickly pear cactus forest. The Darwin Station provides environmental education for the schools and communities that visit the Galapagos Islands. The town will be open to visitors for free, so you can also shop for souvenirs.

Day 2 : Mosquera Islet & North Seymour Island

Mosquera Islet

Wet Landing, Mosquera Islet can be found between North Seymour Island and Baltra Island. The island is flat and sandy with a large colony sea lions. This is a great spot to see shorebirds like lava gulls and herons. The islet is undeveloped and visitors can freely enjoy its open space. The majority of the island is covered in sand and barren volcanic rock. The sand is not suitable for growing sesuvium portsulacastrum plants.

North Seymour Island

Dry landing. This is one of the most popular tourist spots on the archipelago. North Seymour, located off Baltra Island, is the best place to go for day trips from Santa Cruz's main port Puerto Ayora.
A two-hour walk through large nesting colonies blue-footed bobies*, great frigatebirds*, and swallow-tailed Gulls will take you to the heart of sea bird breeding cycles as well as sealions. On a good day, you may even see a Galapagos Snake.
