Private Independent Travel

Explore the Southern islands of the Galapagos on this unique 4 day cruise, perfect for those who wish to either explore the islands but are short on time. Cruise the shores of Espanola, Floreana and more aboard the Majestic motor yacht.

Day 1

    San Cristobal

    Arrive at the San Cristobal airport this morning and transfer to the boat. While enjoying lunch on board set sail and cruise the shores of this island. This afternoon brings a shore visit at the El Junco Lagoon.

    Day 2

      Floreana

      This is one of the islands that has the most interesting human history. It was one of the earliest islands to be inhabited. In 1793 a post office barrel was erected on Floreana to facilitate delivery to the United States and Europe. Today, this area of the island is of course called Post Office Bay.

      Explore Cormorant Point in the afternoon, with more than 50 volcanic cones rise in an 80-mile area. Pink flamingos, clear water and interesting coral growths make this a perfect spot for snorkeling.

      Continue to Devil's Crown, a volcanic crater near Floreana that has been eroded by the waves. Here snorkelers are immersed in a world of color and movement filled with schools of fish that move as one: king angelfish, yellowtail surgeonfish, and needlefish. There are also parrotfish, Moorish idols, and damselfish, sea cucumbers, sea stars, sea urchins, sleeping sharks, turtles, rays and many more, making this one of the best snorkeling sites in the Galapagos.

      Day 3

        Espanola

        This morning stop at Suarez Point, an amazing site and one of the most attractive in the Galapagos, because of the quantity and variety of wildlife. The trail along the island will take you past sea lions surfing the breaking waves, iguanas basking in the warm sun and boobies nesting right in your path. The trail continues towards the cliffs and the blowhole, which is a fissure in the lava where water spurts high in the air like a geyser.

        This afternoon, Gardener Bay offers great opportunities for enjoying some beach time in the Galapagos. Here the mockingbirds will be the center of your attention as they keep you company on top of your hat or investigating your belongings.

        Day 4

          Santa Cruz Island

          From your landing point in the town of Puerto Ayora, enjoy an excursion to the Twin Craters, located in the highlands of this second largest island in the Galapagos archipelago. The lush greenery of the Santa Cruz highlands offers a welcome contrast with the arid scenery of the smaller, lower islands. You will get a chance to see enormous pit craters, lava tunnels and giant tortoises roaming freely.

          Continue to the airport for your journey home.
