Private Independent Travel

Experience the wonder of the Galapagos islands while touring this stunning archipelago. Dip into history, swim with playful sea lions, and reach out to touch the famed Galapagos tortoise at the Charles Darwin Research Center.

Day 1

    San Cristobal - Leon Dormido

    Arrive at San Cristobal Island Airport and transfer to the Cormorant.

    Sail for Kicker Rock, a striking rock formation which juts out of the water and towers above the ocean. Spot a variety of marine life as your snorkel through the canal between the two formations.

    Day 2

      Espanola

      Journey to Suarez Point to view Blue-footed Boobies, albatrosses and Nazca Boobies. The most famous attraction on Espanola is a magnificent blowhole which spurts water high into the air. Take a two mile hike across the island.

      In the afternoon, travel to Gardner Bay, the breeding site of most of the world´s 12,000 pairs of Waved Albatrosses. Gardner Bay features a large white sandy beach and the reef makes this location ideal for snorkeling and swimming with sea lions.

      Day 3

        Floreana

        In the morning, set sail for Cormorant Point which features a large flamingo lagoon. Take an optional hike or swim in the clear waters.

        Travel to Floreana to visit Post Office Bay, where an a wooden barrel was placed by 18th century whalers as an unofficial post office. The tradition has continued to this day, and travelers can leave addressed postcards and sort through the barrel for postcards close to their homes. Delivering one of these postcards is a rewarding experience.

        Day 4

          Santa Cruz Island - Charles Darwin Center - Baltra

          In the morning, tour the Charles Darwin Research Station and view the tortoises in various stages of life. New hatchlings average 3 inches, while the adults can reach over 4 feet long. Stretch out your hand and interact with these gentle giants.

          In the afternoon, transfer to the airport for your flight back to the mainland.
