Private Independent Travel

Embark on this 6 day adventure that explores the incredible western and central islands of the Galapagos. Highlights of the west include beautiful Santa Cruz, wildlife-rich Isabela, cliff-laden Fernandina, and the amazing black beaches of Santiago. Be entertained by the antics of friendly sea lions or get up close and personal with the incredible giant tortoises that make their home here.

    Arrive to the Galapagos and transfer by ferry to Santa Cruz Island. After arriving to Santa Cruz, you will transfer by boat to Isabela Island where you board your ship.

    Day 2

      Isabela

      This morning, visit Punta Moreno on Isabela Island. Punta Moreno is know for its coastal lagoons, black lava flows, and a variety of Galapagos birds. If we're lucky, we may even see flamingos!

      This afternoon, we visit Elizabeth Bay where we will set our sights on various Galapagos wildlife such as the Flightless Cormorant, sea lions and the Galapagos Heron.

      Day 3

        Isabela

        Today we explore more of Isabela Island, stopping at Urbina Bay and Tagus Cove. At Urbina Bay, observe marine iguanas, Noddies and the Galapagos Penguin! At Tagus Cove, keep your eyes peeled for Blue-footed Boobies, Galapagos Penguins and the Flightless Cormorant, among other unique wildlife.

        Day 4

          Fernandina - Isabela

          This morning we travel to Punta Espinoza on Fernandina Island. Punta Espinoza is home to sea lions, Flightless Cormorants, marine iguanas and pelicans.

          In the afternoon, we return to Isabela Island and visit Punta Vicente Roca, a fantastic place for snorkeling. This is also a great place for viewing the amazing Galapagos wildlife!

          Day 5

            Santiago - Bartolomé

            This morning we visit Puerto Egas on Santiago Island, where we will see Galapagos fur seals swimming along the shore. If we're lucky, we will also spot numerous Galapagos birds, such as the Galapagos Dove, the Vermilion Flycatcher, and the Galapagos Hawk!

            This afternoon, we travel to Bartolomé Island. Here, we hike up steep, wooden steps in order to reward ourselves with spectacular views of the islands!

            Day 6

              North Seymour - Baltra

              This morning we travel to North Seymour Island, home one of the largest populations of frigatebirds. We may also see Blue-footed Boobies and Swallow-tailed Gulls.
