Begin your Galapagos tour at North Seymour Island. Take a 1.2 mile hike across the island and explore its rocky coast. Along the way, stop to see colonies of blue-footed boobies and magnificent frigatebirds. Watch as sea lions body surf in the waves and see if you can spot Daphne Major and Minor in the distance.
In the afternoon, 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, travel to Urbina Bay to see sea turtles and rays in the shallows. Take a short trail to the coral reef, providing you with the unique experience of walking in a coral bed.
Sail for El Chato in the afternoon, a reserve in the highlands of Santa Cruz. See the giant tortoises in the wild and walk around the reserve, offering one of the best places to observe ground birds, tree and ground finches, the vermillion flycatcher, cattle egrets and occasionally Galápagos rails.
In the afternoon, visit Baroness’ Observatory for breath-taking views of La Lobería and the inland features of Floreana.
