Day 2: Española Island: Suarez Point, Gardner Bay & Osborn Islets

Suarez Point

Suarez Point is a rich habitat for wildlife. You can explore it by walking the circular trail. This unforgettable walk will take visitors past large nesting areas of blue-footed and nazca boobies, and mockingbirds.

The beautiful waved albatross are also a unique feature of Espanola Island. They can be seen majestically leaping out over the ocean from the cliffs or the green and red marine iguanas.

One of the most striking geological highlights is a series of blow holes that can shoot water 25m up into the air.

Gardner Bay, Gardner, and Osborn Islets

Gardner Bay's pristine, white sandy beach is perfect for relaxing. Paddle boarding or kayaking are great ways to see the many waved albatross that use the beach as a breeding ground.

You can snorkel with young sea lions in the Gardner and Osborn Islets by taking a short panga ride.

Day 3: Floreana Island: Cormorant Point, Champion islet, Post Office Bay & Baroness Lookout

Cormorant Point

Cormorant Point has two beaches. One is green-tinted due to high levels of olivine crystals and the other is pure white sand (commonly called 'Flour Beach'). Both are derived from pulverized Coral.

You must see the saltwater lagoon, which is home to one of the largest populations of Galapagos Flamingos.

Champion islet

Panga rides to Champion Islet, an extinct shield volcanic volcano, offer a great opportunity for snorkeling in an area known for its high diversity of fish.

Post Office Bay

Post Office Bay, a man-made location that provides an insight into the remarkable postal tradition that British whalers developed in the 18th century and that visitors can still participate in today, is called Post Office Bay. You can also enjoy kayaking, snorkeling, and walking through lava tubes from the beach.

The Baroness' Eyes

Take a panga ride next to the Baroness’ Lookout volcanic rock formation, named after an Australian baroness who visited the island during the 1930's. It is believed that she mysteriously vanished.

There is a short trail that leads to the vantage point, which offers spectacular views of the coastline and mangroves.

Day 4: Mosquera Islet, Santa Cruz Island & Baltra Airport

Mosquera islet, a small, flat and sandy island between Baltra islands and North Seymour islets, is called.
