Day 1 San Cristobal - Leon Dormido - Lobos

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.

Day 2 San Cristobal

  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
In the morning, journey to Pitt Point to view the endemic species of lava lizards and red-footed boobies. Snorkel in the shallows or relax on the beach.

Sail for Punta Suarez, which sustains one of the most impressive and varied colonies of sea birds in the Galapagos archipelago. Hike the cliffs to sea soaring birds or set out to watch the blowhole.

Day 4 Floreana

  • Ship

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!

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).
