Day 1 : Baltra | Santa Cruz Island | Embark Day 2 : Mosquera Islet | North Seymour Island Day 3 : Santa Fe Island | South Plaza Day 4 : Interpretation Center & Tijeretas | San Cristobal | Disembark
Meet giant tortoises and their "galapaguitos" in the Charles Darwin Station
Visit a sea lion colony and observe herons in Mosquera Islet
Walk through an endemic cactus forest and search for land iguanas
Arrive to the Galapagos and transfer to your ship, the Corals. In the afternoon cruise to Santa Cruz Island and visit the station where the Galapagos giant tortoise breeding program takes place as part of efforts to preserve the fragile Galapagos environment and where the famous Lonesome George (the last surviving specimen of his species) lived for decades. Admire a prickly-pear cactus forest and a variety of Darwin finches and other land birds. If there is enough time visit the town and shop for souvenirs.
Land in Mosquera Islet, located between North Seymour and Baltra Island. This flat, sandy island has a large colony of sea lions. It is also an excellent site to observe shorebirds such as herons and lava gulls. There is no trail on Mosquera Island, so any visitor can enjoy the open area. Most of the islet is covered with sand and barren lava rock. Very little Sesuvium portulacastrum grows on the sand.
Visit North Seymour, an island formed by a series of underwater volcanic lava which was deposited in layers on the ocean floor. Take an approximately two-hour walk amidst large nesting colonies of blue-footed boobies, magnificent and great frigate birds, and swallow-tailed gulls for an in-depth encounter with sea bird breeding cycles. Encounter sea lions, land Iguanas, and on a lucky day, you might even come across a Galapagos snake.
Enjoy Santa Fe´s white sand beach and find yourself surrounded by a sea lion colony. Continue walking through an endemic cactus forest and search for the endemic Santa Fe land iguana (the largest in the islands). This island is home to a number of endemic species including Galapagos hawk, Galapagos snake, rice rats, a variety of finches, and one of the four mockingbird species of the Galapagos.
Walk through an impressive cactus forest surrounded by the colorful yellow and red land iguanas and marine iguanas and keep a look out for tropicbirds and one of the largest sea lion colonies. Encounter the one and only Galapagos hybrid iguana and stumble upon a bright red landscape which is a characteristic of the island during the dry season.
Day 4 Interpretation Center & Tijeretas | San Cristobal | Disembark
Step foot in Puerto Baquerizo Moreno, the capital of the Galapagos Islands. Visit the Interpretation Center, an excellent place to learn about natural history in the islands. The Museum of Natural History displays information on the volcanic origins of the islands, their remoteness from the continent, ocean currents, climate, and the arrival of the different species and their colonization, among other points of interest.
Take a high-intensity hike to visit Tijeretas Hill and admire beautiful landscapes ending with a magnificent view of a nearby large frigate bird colony.
After your hike, transfer to the airport for your flight back to mainland Ecuador.

Our guide and driver were very good with their knowledge and were very helpful with our questions. It was a very pleasant visit that would have been impossible to do on our own. Hotels and restaurants were fantastic. The special places we got to go to, like the kitchens, were great. Enjoyed the entire trip!
