Arrive at the airport and transfer to the harbor. Board a panga and head for the Seaman Journey.
After lunch and a brief orientation, sail for Leon Dormido, the remains of a lava cone eroded by the sea. The two vertical rocks tower 500 feet above the sea, forming a small channel. Sail through the channel and possibly snorkel between the rocks.
Arrive at Cormorant Point to view one of the best flamingo lagoons in the Galapagos. Situated between two lava cones, this secluded lagoon is also the home to common stilts, white-checked pintail ducks, and other migratory birds.
In the afternoon, travel to Post Office Bay and Baroness Lookout. Post Office Bay is known for its historical barrel, in which whalers and sailors used to place their mail. Take part in the tradition by leaving an addressed postcard or letter in the barrel for someone else to take and deliver by hand. If you see an address close to yours, feel free to take it home and deliver it, yourself!
Day 5 Santa Cruz Island - Baltra
In the morning, visit the Charles Darwin Research Station to learn about tortoise conservation in the Galapagos. Reach out to interact with the tortoises which reside within its corrals.
In the afternoon, transfer to the airport for your connection to the mainland.
