There is an endless list of activities to make this an unforgettable trip including snorkeling, roaming volcanic landscapes, and observing the riveting native wildlife. Be entertained by the antics of playful sea lions and get up close and personal with the incredible giant tortoises.

Day 1

    San Cristobal

    Arrive to the Galapagos and transfer by bus to your ship. This afternoon, we explore San Cristobal Island, stopping at the Interpretation Center and Museum of Natural History in order to learn about the history and nature of the Galapagos Islands. Afterwards, hike up Tijeretas Hill which offers up magnificent views! We hopefully catch a glimpse of the Frigatebird, as a colony is close by.

    Day 2

      Española

      This morning we arrive at Española Island and explore Gardner Bay and the Gardner and Osborn Islets. We stroll along the shore where we hope to spot an abundance of birds such as the American Oystercatcher and the Galapagos Hawk. While snorkeling, be on the lookout for marine life such as Manta rays and reef sharks!

      In the afternoon, we travel over to Suarez Point for more wildlife viewing and a hike that takes us through the nesting grounds of Nazca and Blue-footed Boobies. Keep your eyes peeled for the Waved Albatross!

      Day 3

        Floreana

        Today we explore Floreana Island. Upon arrival, we head over to Post Office Bay where you can leave your unstamped postcards in the hopes that they get delivered to their destination via other travelers.

        In the afternoon we stop at Cormorant Point and Devil's Crown where we hike along the beach, keeping our eyes peeled for sea turtles, Blue-footed Boobies and reef sharks!

        Day 4

          Santa Cruz Island - Charles Darwin Center

          This morning we spend time in the Santa Cruz highlands. Here we visit El Chato Reserve where we hope to observe the Galapagos tortoise in its native habitat.

          In the afternoon we visit the Charles Darwin Station, home of the Fausto Llerena tortoise breeding center.

          Day 5

            Daphne Island - Baltra

            This morning we cruise around Daphne Island for one last opportunity to see more of the Galapagos' gorgeous bird life. Keep your eyes peeled for Blue-footed and Nazca Boobies, Brown Noddies and Darwin's finches!

            Afterwards, we head straight to the airport for your flight back to mainland Ecuador.
