Day 1

    Baltra - North Seymour

    Arrive at the Baltra airport and transfer to the Guantanamera. Attend a briefing about the island and the ship.

    Spend the morning on North Seymour Island and explore its rocky coast. Spot Daphne Major and Minor in the distance play with sea lions as they body surf close to shore.

    Day 2

      Leon Dormido - 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.

      In the afternoon, visit Isla Lobos (Sea Lion Island) to interact with the sea lions which rest on its shores. Home to home to blue-footed boobies, great frigate-birds, brown pelicans, lava gulls, common noddies, yellow warblers and small and medium ground finches, the island is also an ideal location for birders. Snorkel with the sea lions and relax on the beach.

      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

          Santa Fe - South Plaza Island

          In the morning, visit Santa Fe to snorkel with sea lions and view the plentiful number of birds. 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 of 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 5

            Santa Cruz Island - Baltra

            In the morning, 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.
