Day 1

    Baltra - Santa Cruz Island - Highlands

      In the morning, travel to Cormorant Point to hike a trail which overlooks a saltwater lagoon. A favorite location for flamingos, you may also see green sea turtles. Sail for Champion Islet for snorkeling. Champion Rock is covered with black coral bushes and yellow cup corals.

      In the afternoon, visit Baroness’ Observatory and Post Office Bay. Feel free to leave an addressed postcard in the barrel and take one for delivery if the address is close to where you live.

      Day 3

        Chinese Hat- Dragon Hill

        Today begins at Chinese Hat, a small island off the coast of Santiago that is an awesome opportunity to see and interpret geological features such as lava tubes and lava flows. Then sail for Dragon Hill to see flamingos, common stilts, pintail ducks and other species of birds. Take a short walk to the lagoon behind the beach and snorkel in the clear waters off the coast.

        Day 4
