Explore destinations like Santa Cruz, Isabela, Fernandina, Santiago, Rabida, Sombrero Chino, Seymour, and others. The schedule offers a range of activities, including hiking, snorkeling, kayaking, and panga rides.

Some of the notable moments on the agenda involve venturing to the highlands of Santa Cruz to witness giant tortoises in their natural habitat, embarking on a hike to Tagus Cove, a location Charles Darwin himself visited, snorkeling at Punta Espinosa, home to a substantial colony of marine iguanas, and discovering the lava fields at Espinoza Point.

The plan is thoughtfully crafted to grant guests the chance to encounter various forms of wildlife, such as giant tortoises, sea lions, marine iguanas, penguins, boobies, frigatebirds, Galapagos hawks, Darwin finches, and numerous other species.

Day by day

Day 1 : Baltra airport & Santa Cruz: Highlands
AM: Baltra 

Departure for the Galapagos Islands. Arrival at Baltra Airport, where you will find our National Park Naturalist Guide.

PM: Santa Cruz: Highlands

You can choose to start this tour from Baltra, or Puerto Ayora. A bus will then take you up to the mountains stopping at one of several reserves along the route to see the Galapagos giant tortoises. The Galapagos is the perfect place to view these gentle giants. They can reach over 300 kg/600 pounds! They can be seen grazing in the freshwater ponds and taking a rest. The area is home to a wide variety of bird species, which are not common in the lowlands. These include finches, flycatchers, and waterbirds. Visit a lava tube (depending on your itinerary) to learn about the volcanic eruptions that created these amazing formations.
Day 2 : Isabela: Moreno Point & Elizabeth Bay
AM: Moreno Point
Moreno Point has a beautiful landscape with a lot of lava, which at first glance appears to be lifeless. Once you reach the inland area, you will find scattered lagoons with flamingos, swans, herons, and gallinules. We will search for sea birds, blue-footed boobies, flightless Cormorants, penguins and marine iguanas along the coast.

Snorkel: While snorkeling, we will see many different species of fish and sea turtles. You might even find one if you look carefully at the seaweed.

PM: Elizabeth Bay
Elizabeth Bay has a beautiful bay that is protected by mangroves. It also features lava fields and barren terrain. You will need to take a boat tour in order to see the many coves, channels and pools teeming full of life. Galapagos Penguins can be seen here in abundance, though don't count on seeing thousands, since the population is just 3,000. In the same area, flightless cormorants nest and blue-footed boobies and pelicans fish. There are many rays and turtles.
