Day 1: Baltra Airport | Embark | Bartholomew Island

  • Ship
  • 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Upon arrival, reception and assistance at the airport, transfer from Baltra Airport to the M/C Endemic.
 
After lunch, discover Bartholomew Island. Admire the spectacular panorama of the Sullivan Bay and the famous Pinnacle Rock. The beaches at the foot of the Pinnacle Rock are excellent for snorkeling from which you can discover the marvelous underwater world, and with a little luck, you might snorkel with penguins!

Day 2: Devil´s Crown | Cormorant Point - Baroness’ Lookout | Post Office Bay

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
In the morning, after breakfast, the first spot to be visited is Devil´s Crown that is an underwater volcanic crater, almost covered completely by Galapagos waters. Just a small portion of the rock formation can be seen from above and it looks like a crown. The underwater world is very rich in coral reefs, abundant marine species. Birds are also part of this visitor point due to its location in open waters.
 
Or visit Cormorant Point where you land on a green olivine sand beach. Following a 100 meters long path you will soon reach a lagoon with flamingos. 
 
In the afternoon, visit the Baroness’ Lookout (Mirador de la Baronesa). This viewpoint is located on the north of Floreana Island. The way up and the trail is very easy, steps are placed in this area for security.  Your naturalist guide tells the murder and mystery legend of the Baroness.
 
Or you can go to the Post Office Bay, which keeps the legendary post barrel that whalers historically used to post their mail in.

Day 3: Chinese Hat | North Seymour Island

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
In the morning, after breakfast, visit Chinese Hat, which is a small islet off the south coast of Santiago, with a maximum elevation of 160 feet (52 meters). Though within easy reach of Santa Cruz, Chinese Hat is typically only visited by those aboard a Galapagos Cruise.
 
In the afternoon, North Seymour island is discovered. It is located slightly to the north of Baltra. It is a low, flat island, formed by submarine lava formation uplift. Covered with low, bushy vegetation, it contains the largest colony of magnificent frigate birds in the Galapagos. There is also a large population of blue-footed boobies that perform an amusing courtship dance when nesting conditions are right.
 

Day 4: Black Turtle Cove | Baltra Airport

  • 1 Breakfast
After breakfast, enjoy the visit to Black Turtle Cove, which is located on the north shore of Santa Cruz. It is a living illustration of how mangroves alter the marine environment to create a rich and unique habitat. Three mangrove species crowd the area from the shore out into the lagoon, which reaches almost a mile inland.
 
As you drift through quiet waters in the zodiac, you are likely to see spotted eagle rays and diamond-shaped mustard rays, which swim in a diamond formation. White-tipped reef sharks slip beneath the boat and Pacific green sea turtles come to the surface for air and to mate. Waterfowl, including pelicans, herons and egret, all feed in the cove. This is a peaceful place that makes you feel calm.
 
After this last visit, transfer to Baltra airport for your return flight to mainland Ecuador.

Assistance and farewell at the airport.

Our guide and driver were very good with their knowledge and were very helpful with our questions. It was a very pleasant visit that would have been impossible to do on our own. Hotels and restaurants were fantastic. The special places we got to go to, like the kitchens, were great. Enjoyed the entire trip!
