Private Independent Travel

Explore the southeastern islands on a Galapagos cruise aboard the Beagle. This voyage circles the Galapagos Islands and treats guests to great snorkeling opportunities, wildlife encounters, and the chance to interact with the giant tortoises which gave this archipelago its name.

Day 1

    Baltra - Charles Darwin Center - Santa Cruz Island

    Arrive at the Baltra airport and transfer to the Beagle.

    Begin your Galapagos journey with a visit 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.

    Day 2

      Floreana

      Arrive at Cormorant Point to view one of the best flamingo lagoons in the Galapagos. Situated between two lava cones, this secluded lagoon is also the home to common stilts, white-checked pintail ducks, and other migratory birds.

      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!

      Day 3

        Espanola

        In the morning, journey to Pitt Point to view the endemic species of lava lizards and red-footed boobies. Snorkel in the shallows or relax on the beach.

        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.

        Day 4

          San Cristobal - Lobos

          Sail for Leon Dormido, the remains of a lava cone eroded by the sea. The two vertical rocks tower 500 feet above the sea, forming a small channel. Sail through the channel and possibly snorkel between the rocks.

          Day 5

            Santa Fe - South Plaza Island

            In the morning, visit Santa Fe to snorkel with sea lions and view the plentiful number of birds which reside here. Take a trail which passes salt bushes and giant prickly pear cactus.

            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.

            Day 6

              North Seymour - Bartolome

              Travel to North Seymour, an uplifted and flat island which is strewn with boulders. Walk among frigatebird colonies and view Blue-footed boobies as they perform their courtship dance. Snorkel in shallows and watch sea lions body surf in the waves.

              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.

              Day 7

                Santa Cruz Island - Chinese Hat

                This morning, travel to Santa Cruz Island and stop at Bachas Beach, a nesting site for sea turtles. The sand at Bachas Beach is made of decomposed coral, making it white and soft.

                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.

                Day 8

                  Santa Cruz Island - Baltra

                  Travel to Los Gemelos, a pair of twin craters. Popular theories of how these craters came to be are that they were either created from a volcanic explosion or because of collapsed magma chambers inside earth.

                  In the afternoon, transfer to the airport for your connection to the mainland.
