Santa Cruz: Dragon Hill  

Dragon Hill also has a flamingos lagoon, pintail ducks, and other endemic birds like flycatchers, warblers, and flycatchers. A short hike will take us to the top of the hill, where we can enjoy a stunning view. Before returning to the yacht, you can go offshore snorkeling.

Day 2: San Cristobal: Kicker Rock, Witch Hill & Lobos Island

Kicker Rock

Kicker Rock is the first place to visit in the morning. This impressive geological formation was formed by erosion. This area is home to many seabirds. You will also find curious sea lions and other marine life, including fish, turtles, sharks, and rays. This is the main attraction when snorkeling. This is a great spot for taking pictures.

Witch Hill

Next, visit Witch Hill, a tuff-cone hill that is located south of San Cristobal. This name is derived from the Spanish name for the bird, known as Vermilion Flycatcher in English.

Zodiac rides will take you to amazing rock formations on the island shore. This magical location features a white sandy beach and clear waters. This is a great spot to snorkel.

Lobos Island

You will then be taken to Lobos Island in the afternoon. Here you can observe a small number of blue-footed frigates, blue-footed frigates, marine Iguanas and great frigate bird nesting. This excursion also includes snorkeling with sea lions at this calm bay.

Day 3: Española Island: Gardner Bay & Suarez Point

Today, Espanola Island is being explored. The Hood-Mockingbird will be on display. This island is the southernmost in the Galapagos archipelago and is home to many wildlife species including blue-footed and masked boobies. Amazing views from the top a cliff.

Gardner Bay

After breakfast, Gardner Bay is the first place to see. It has a great beach and is a popular spot for swimming. Snorkelers will find many fish, turtles, and sharks around the small islands. You may also find colonies of sea lions in the bay, which are happy to swim alongside you.

You can also visit Osborn or Gardner islands, which are great for underwater exploration. This visitor point is famous for its snorkeling.

Suarez Point

After lunch, Point Suarez, one of the most spectacular wildlife areas in the archipelago with a long list species found along its cliffs, sand, or pebble beaches, will be visited.

Day 4: Santa Fe Island & Santa Cruz Island: Fausto Llerena Center

Santa Fe Island

After breakfast, Santa Fe Island will be visited. This island is one of the most popular destinations for shore excursions in Galapagos Islands. There are two trails to choose from. One takes you to the highest Opuntia plant in the Galapagos. The other takes you to the highlands, where land iguanas are possible to be seen. It's worth the long trek to be able to enjoy calm waters and snorkel with playful sealions after a while.

Santa Cruz Island: Fausto Llerena Center

Visit the Fausto Llerena Breeding Center in the afternoon. Also known as Charles Darwin Research Station, The place includes an information center, museum, library, and a tortoise-breeding station. You can find tortoises from different subspecies in the tortoise-breeding station. They are ready for reintroduction back to their natural habitats. This Station's most famous resident is the Lonesome George turtle. It died in 2012.

Day 5: South Plaza Island & Baltra Airport

South Plaza Island

In the morning, South Plazas island is the next island to be discovered. It has unique Sesuvium plants and Opuntia cactuses scattered across the landscape which provide some of the most interesting wildlife observations available in Galapagos.  Land iguanas are easily seen from the trail, frequently under the shade of cactuses, waiting for a prickly pear to fall.
