Arrive at the San Cristobal airport and transfer to the Santa Cruz for your Galapagos tour.
Begin your cruise at the Interpretation Center to learn about the history and biodiversity of the Galápagos Islands. Take a self-guided walking tour to familiarize yourself with this unique island chain.
Sail for the island of Espanola and visit Suárez Point, one of the most spectacular wildlife areas of the archipelago. Hike a short trail to view Española Island mockingbirds, Galápagos doves, Galápagos hawks, marine iguanas, and the oversized lava lizard. Return to the shore to snorkel in the clear, warm shallows.
Sail for Post Office Bay to view the barrel where whalers and sailors used to leave their mail. Take place in the tradition by leaving an addressed postcard in the barrel. If you sort through those already placed in the barrel and find one close to where you live, feel free to take it and deliver it, yourself!
In the morning, journey to Espinosa Point, a narrow stretch of land where hundreds of marine iguanas sun themselves on the lava rocks. Observe the different types of lava flows and mangrove forests which line the area.
After lunch, sail for Vicente Roca Point to see two coves formed by the remnants of an ancient volcano. These turquoise coves are well protected from ocean swells and are ideal for snorkeling. Explore the cliffs surrounding the bays and view masked and blue-footed boobies.
Transfer to the airport for your connecting flight to the mainland.
