Embark on a Galapagos cruise aboard the Eric or Letty. This 7-day tour of the southern islands takes you to white beaches, secluded lagoons, and pristine snorkeling locations for an unforgetttable week long tour of the Galapagos.
Day 1 : San Cristobal Day 2 : San Cristobal Day 3 : Espanola Day 4 : Floreana Day 5 : Santa Cruz Island Day 6 : Santa Cruz Island - Bartolome - Chinese Hat Day 7 : Baltra
Arrive at Cerro Brujo, a breathtaking white coral beach. Cerro Brujo is considered to be one of the most pristine in the Galapagos Islands and is ideal for birders and short walks. Snorkel or swim with sea lions or take a zodiac ride.
Punta Suarez, Espanola, offers the highest range of endemic species in Galapagos. Colonies of blue-footed boobies are found engaging in sky-pointing, used to show off for future mates. There is also a unique species of marine iguana which feature red and green colorings. Snorkel and swim with sea lions or sit on the beach and observe sally light-foot crabs skirt across the sand.
Step ashore at Punta Cormorant, one of the only populated islands in the Galapagos archipelago. This island is intriguing and presents a rich human history with that of the animals.
Hike towards a lagoon, home to several species of birds including the Greater Flamingo. Hope to see nesting sea turtles and rays as they jump out of the water. Snorkel at Devil’s Crown or Champion, shallow sunken craters known for their fish and coral inhabitants.
Travel by bus to the highlands of Santa Cruz Island. Watch as the scenery changes, covering each of the seven vegetation zones. Visit Las Primicias, a private farm where you can encounter giant tortoises in their natural habitat. Stop at the tunnels, the largest lava tubes found in Galapagos, and then visit Los Gemelos and the Charles Darwin Research Station.
Disembark at Bartolome, an island which is largely inhospitable to most plants and wildlife. Hike for half an hour towards the summit of an extinct volcano. Admire lava bombs, spatter, and cinder cones found along the way. At the top, gaze across the island for panoramic views. Snorkel in the clear water with schools of tropical fish and Galapagos penguins or take a ride on the zodiac.
Travel to Sombrero Chino (Chinese Hat), named for its unique rocky shape. Land on shore and walk though a sea lion colony before taking a trail through dramatic volcanic landscape.
Day 7 Baltra
Sail to Baltra, a small and flat centrally located island. Explore the vegetation and trails of the island.

This was my first experience with Adventure Life - and I couldn't have been more pleased with the trip. The guides and local staff in both Buenos Aires and Uruguay were terrific - extremely helpful and accommodating. I really enjoyed meeting the friendly staff in Buenos Aires in person (I left my bags with them for the afternoon).
