Day 2 Espanola

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
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

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
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 5 Floreana

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
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.
