Arrive at the Baltra airport and transfer to the Beagle.
Embark on your Galapagos adventure at Bachas Beach and go swimming. View the floating pier which was left by American soldiers after the end of World War II. View the flamingos, Sally Lightfoot crabs, hermit crabs, black necked stilts, and whimbrels which make Bachas Beach their home.
In the morning, travel to the coral beach of Darwin Bay. Take a short hike through multiple seabird colonies and a large red-footed booby colony.
In the afternoon, take the wooden staircase up Prince Phillip’s Step (El Barranco) for panoramic views of the island.
In the morning, sail for Puerto Egas to relax on black sand beaches and visit the old salt mines. Take an inland hike to the salt crater or walk along the rugged shoreline to find iguanas and sea lions. At the end of the trail, hope to find a colony of fur seals and night herons in the sea caves by the shore.
Following lunch, travel to Espumilla Beach and visit its mangrove forest. You may see nesting sea turtles and flocks of pink flamingos. Snorkel and swim in the shallow water.
In the evening, make your way to Buccaneer Cove. Pirates used to drop anchor in this secluded lagoon to make repairs and replenish their food stores. Hike along the cliffs for stunning views of the island.
In the morning, set sail for Isabela Island and visit Tagus Cove. Hope to catch a glimpse of the Galapagos Penguin and take a trail to the top of a cliff to view Darwin Lake. This lake is saltier than the ocean. As you explore the area, pay attention to the graffiti which covers the walls, as it has been written by pirates, whalers and buccaneers in past centuries.
After lunch, visit Espinoza Point on Fernandina Island, home of a variety of Galapagos marine iguanas.
In the morning, set sail for White Tipped Reef Shark Canal, named for the sharks which call the reef their home. View them as they rest in the shallows and then snorkel in the clear waters surrounding the reef.
After lunch, explore the Wall of Tears. This wall was built by prisoners of the penal colony which used to exist on Isabela, using large lava blocks for its construction. Take a set of stairs above the wall to view it in its entirety.
Travel to Punta Moreno and hike the trail which runs along a lava flow. The trail leads you to a series of coastal lagoons and mangroves.
Following lunch, sail for Elizabeth Bay, a marine visitor site with no landing point. Take a zodiac to visit the Marielas islets and view the largest penguin colony in the Galapagos. Also view sea turtles, flightless cormorants, spotted eagle rays, golden rays, brown pelicans and sea lions.
Continue your exploration of Isabela.
Arrive at Cormorant Point to view one of the best flamingo lagoons in the Galapagos. Situated between two lava cones, this secluded lagoon is also the home to common stilts, white-checked pintail ducks, and other migratory birds.
In the afternoon, travel to Post Office Bay and Baroness Lookout. Post Office Bay is known for its historical barrel, in which whalers and sailors used to place their mail. Take part in the tradition by leaving an addressed postcard or letter in the barrel for someone else to take and deliver by hand. If you see an address close to yours, feel free to take it home and deliver it, yourself!
In the morning, journey to Pitt Point to view the endemic species of lava lizards and red-footed boobies. Snorkel with young sea lions 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.
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 between them. Sail through the channel and possibly snorkel among the rocks.
In the morning, visit Santa Fe to snorkel with sea lions and view the plentiful number of birds which reside on the island. 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 found on 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.
Travel to North Seymour, an uplifted and flat island which is strewn with boulders. Walk among frigate-bird colonies and view blue-footed boobies as they perform their courtship dance. Snorkel in shallows and watch sea lions body surf in the waves.
In the afternoon, set sail for Bartolomé Island. The high altitude of the island provides travelers with spectacular views of its lava fields and lunar-like craters. Bartolomé is also home to sea turtles and the Galapagos Penguin.
Travel to Santa Cruz Island and stop at Bachas Beach, a nesting site for sea turtles. The sand at Bachas Beach is made of decomposed coral, making it white and soft. Popular for swimming, this beach is a wonderful morning excursion.
In the afternoon, travel to Chinese Hat (Sombrero Chino) an island full of unique lava tubes and lava flows. The island was named for its unique lava shape and features wonderful snorkeling opportunities.
Travel to Los Gemelos, a pair of twin craters. Popular theories of how these craters came to be are that they were either created from a volcanic explosion or because of collapsed magma chambers inside earth.
In the afternoon, transfer to the airport for your connection to the mainland.
