Arrive in the Galapagos via the Baltra airport. After transferring to your ship, settle in and experience a boat drill exercise. Enjoy lunch on board while repositioning to North Seymour. This dry landing starts a walk along the rocky shores and through the natural landscapes, spotting wildlife along the way. Return to the ship for your dinner and welcome cocktails.

Day 2 San Cristobal

The morning will bring you to the shores of Lobos Island where you will find the fabled blue footed boobie, among other fascinating creatures. Later experience deep water snorkeling at Kicker Rock, which offers some of the Galapagos best deep water marine spotting. After lunch on board, land on San Cristobal Island at Brujo Hill, a wide stretch of sandy beach to explore.

Day 3 Espanola

Espanola is your destination for the day. After breakfast on board, hop off at Gardner Bay for some deep water snorkeling before exploring this sandy shore on foot. The afternoon brings you to Suarez Point, a rocky shore perfect for exploration and wildlife spotting.

Day 4 Floreana

Floreana and her many attractions are the plan for today. This morning explore Cormorant Point and Champion Islet before returning to the ship for lunch. Champion Islet offers excellent deep water snorkeling. This afternoon disembark at Post Office Bay, a unique location full of rich archipelago history. Take the opportunity to snorkel from the beach here as well.

Day 5 Santa Cruz Island

Disembark this morning in Puerto Ayora and take a tour to the highlands, where you will walk amongst the giant tortoise as they roam in natural habitats. Continue your education this afternoon at the Breeding Center Fausto Llerna, further exploring the amazing rehabilitation and conservation projects for these stunning creatures.

Explore South Plaza this morning, with her unique landscapes of cacti and marine wildlife. Santa Fe this afternoon offers plenty of opportunity to come close to the mighty sea lion, while strolling the white sandy beaches and shallow water snorkeling opportunities from the shore.

Day 7 Bartolome - Chinese Hat

Begin your morning with deep water snorkeling off the shores of Bartolome, then explore this island on foot. Walk the steep walkways to the top, rewarded by an amazing vista shaped by volcanic forces long ago. During lunch you will reposition to Chinese Hat, another unique rock formation unmistakable in shape. Deep water snorkeling off the shores here will complete your day, followed by an evening farewell cocktail celebration on board.
