Day 1 Baltra - North Seymour

Arrive at the Baltra airport and transfer to the harbor. Board a panga (motorized raft) and transfer to the Seaman Journey.

In the afternoon, sail for North Seymour, an uplifted, flat island which is strewn with boulders. Walk among frigatebird colonies and view blue-footed boobies as they perform their courtship dance. Snorkel in shallows and watch sea lions body surf in the waves.

Day 2 Genovesa

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
In the morning, travel to El Barranco and take a hike along the volcanic rock. View the fragile lava cliffs in the south and petrels that nest in the cavities of the rocks.

Sail for Darwin Bay and land on its pristine white coral beach. This bay is a favorite for birders, as red footed-boobies, masked boobies, wandering tattlers, lava gulls, whimbrels, yellow-crowned, and black-crowned lava herons, are often seen in the area. Take a trail which leads up a cliff for spectacular views around the island.

Day 3 South Plaza Island - Santa Fe

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Voyage to South Plaza Island to view some of the most interesting species of the Galapagos. Several hybrid iguanas are found on the island, the result of crossing a male marine iguana and a female land iguana. Unique to the island, the iguanas are numerous due to the plentiful tuna in the water.

In the afternoon, visit Santa Fe to snorkel with sea lions and view the plentiful number of birds. Take a trail which passes salt bushes and giant prickly pear cactus.

Day 4 San Cristobal

  • 1 Breakfast
In the morning, visit the Interpretation Center to learn about both the geological and human history of the islands, conservation issues, and natural history.

Transfer to the airport for your connecting flight back to the mainland.
