      The morning will bring you to the shores of Lobos Island where you will find the fabled blue footed boobie, among other fascinating creatures. Later experience deep water snorkeling at Kicker Rock, which offers some of the Galapagos best deep water marine spotting. After lunch on board, land on San Cristobal Island at Brujo Hill, a wide stretch of sandy beach to explore.

      Day 3

        Espanola

        Espanola is your destination for the day. After breakfast on board, hop off at Gardner Bay for some deep water snorkeling before exploring this sandy shore on foot. The afternoon brings you to Suarez Point, a rocky shore perfect for exploration and wildlife spotting.

        Day 4

          Floreana

          Floreana and her many attractions are the plan for today. This morning explore Cormorant Point and Champion Islet before returning to the ship for lunch.

                Bartolome - Chinese Hat

                Begin your morning with deep water snorkeling off the shores of Bartolome, then explore this island on foot. Walk the steep walkways to the top, rewarded by an amazing vista shaped by volcanic forces long ago.
