Begin your Galapagos journey with a visit to the Charles Darwin Research Station to learn about tortoise conservation in the Galapagos. Reach out to interact with the tortoises which reside within its corrals.
In the afternoon, travel to Post Office Bay and Baroness Lookout. Post Office Bay is known for its historical barrel, in which whalers and sailors used to place their mail. Take part in the tradition by leaving an addressed postcard or letter in the barrel for someone else to take and deliver by hand. If you see an address close to yours, feel free to take it home and deliver it, yourself!
In the afternoon, travel to Cerro Brujo and land on its white coral beach. View several land birds and snorkel with the curious sea lions which live on the island.
Voyage to South Plaza Island to view some of the most interesting species found on the Galapagos. Several hybrid iguanas are found on the island, the result of crossing a male marine iguana and a female land iguana. Unique to the island, the iguanas are numerous due to the plentiful tuna in the water.
In the afternoon, set sail for Bartolomé Island. The high altitude of the island provides travelers with spectacular views of its lava fields and lunar-like craters. Bartolomé is also home to sea turtles and the Galapagos Penguin.
In the afternoon, travel to Chinese Hat (Sombrero Chino) an island full of unique lava tubes and lava flows. The island was named for its unique lava shape and features wonderful snorkeling opportunities.
In the afternoon, transfer to the airport for your connection to the mainland.
