Private Independent Travel

Explore the Galapagos Islands on board the Ocean Spray. This 6-day tour delights travelers with its close encounters with the famed Galapagos tortoises, playful sea lion colonies, and the occasional sharks.

Day 1

    Baltra - Santa Fe

    Arrive at the Baltra Airport and transfer to

    Santa Fe Island, where we search for Galapagos wildlife such as sea lions, iguanas, and the Galapagos Hawk!

    Day 2

      Espanola

      Sail to Suarez Point, a magnificent location for spotting blue-footed boobies, albatrosses and nazca boobies. The most famous attraction is the island's magnificent blowhole, which spurts water high into the air. Take a hike around the island.

      In the afternoon, visit Gardner Bay, the breeding site of most of the world's 12,000 pairs of Waved Albatrosses. The bay is surrounded by white sandy beaches with a myriad of sea lions, making it a great snorkel site.

      Day 3

        San Cristobal - Lobos

        Spend the day at Lobos Island and Kicker Rock. The island is home to countless sea lions, blue-footed boobies, great frigate-birds, brown pelicans, lava gulls, common noddies, yellow warblers and small and medium ground finches. The clear water of the area sports wonderful snorkeling and opportunities to swim with the sea lions. At Kicker Rock, swim with reef fish in the channel and glimpse hammerhead and Galapagos sharks.

        Day 4

          San Cristobal

          Sail to Pitt Point and take a hike up a cliff which leads you through a ravine. This hike leads travelers to an abundance of birds. View the sea lion colony and swim in the warm waters.

          In the afternoon, explore Witch Hill and relax on its picturesque white-sand beaches.

          Day 5

            Floreana

            Visit Post Office Bay, famous for its wooden barrel which posed as an unofficial mail box in the 18th century. The tradition has continued to today, as travelers leave addressed postcards in the barrel and sort through left mail to deliver those close to home.

            In the afternoon, visit Cormorant Point, the site of a large flock of flamingos. Relax on one of the beaches, aptly named for the color of their sands.

            Day 6

              Santa Cruz Island - Black Turtle Cove - Baltra

              In the morning, visit Black Turtle Cove by dinghy and admire the blacktip and whitetip reef sharks, sea turtles, and a variety of rays which are often spotted here. The calm and secluded location of the cove makes it a safe haven for young marine life.

              In the afternoon, transfer back to the airport for your onward journey.
