Set sail for Bachas Beach, an excellent location for swimming. View flamingos, Sally Lightfoot crabs, hermit crabs, black necked stilts, and whimbrels. Explore the floating pier, a remnant World War II in the Galapagos Islands.
Snorkel in the water before heading to El Barranco, also known as Prince Phillip's Steps. Hike up the steep rocky face to the top of a cliff where you can see Red-footed Boobies, Short-eared Lava Owls, Galapagos Swallows, and Galapagos Doves.
In the afternoon, sail for Sullivan Bay, a location of great geological interest. The bay is coated in Pahoehoe and A’A lava flows, creating striking formations.
Journey on to Dragon Hill in the afternoon. Located in northwestern Santa Cruz Island, the area features a hyper-saline lagoon, frequented by a variety of bird species. The walk up the hill culminates in a beautiful view of the bay below.
In the afternoon, set sail for Santa Fe. Formed by an uplift, rather than a volcano, the island is considerably flatter than the other islands. Explore Santa Fe's trails, spot sea lions, and snorkel along the crystal clear shore.
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.
After your highland tour, transfer back to San Cristobal for your departing flight.
