Day 1: Fly to Baltra | Embark | Black Turtle Cove

  • Ship
  • 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Arrive in Baltra this morning after your flight from Guyaquil or Quito. After passing through immigration and baggage claim, you will be met by the Infinity staff member and transferred to the yacht. You will be shown to your cabin where you will have some time to settle in before lunch and a welcome briefing.

Visit Black Turtle Cove in the northern part of Santa Cruz. This inlet is surrounded by mangroves and is only accessible by dinghy. The shallow cove is a haven for young marine life. Black-tip and white-tip reef sharks, sea turtles, and a variety of rays are often spotted here

Day 2: El Barranco | Darwin Bay

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Genovesa Island is located at the inner part of Darwin Bay. This area contains an abundance of frigate birds and other seabirds. Behind the small beach filled with nesting areas for frigates, red-footed boobies, and swallow-tailed gulls are a number of tide pools. At high tide it is likely that the trail covers with water. Your morning visit is to El Barranco which is also known as Prince Phillip’s Steps, El Barranco’s steep and rocky path leads up to a high cliff-face. A marvelous view can be appreciated from here. This site is also home to Palo Santo vegetation as well as red-footed boobies, short-eared lava owls, Galapagos swallows, and Galapagos doves.

In the afternoon, head to Darwin Bay. This white-sand coral beach heads a half-mile trail (0.5 miles / 0.75km) that winds through mangroves filled with land birds. Nazca boobies, red-footed boobies, and swallow-tailed gulls can be spotted here. Further, down the path are tidal pools where sea lions swim playfully and at the end of the path, there is a spectacular view off the cliff.

Day 3: Sullivan Bay | Rabida Island

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
This morning, visit Santiago Island – Sullivan Bay located on the southeast part of Santiago. Sullivan Bay is known for its geology because the area is covered by lava flows. This place has elevations in the form of small volcanoes, formed by the lava flows.

In the afternoon visits Rabida Island (or Jervis) which is one of the most colorful and volcanically varied islands in the archipelago as well as a great snorkeling site. Start on Rabida’s famous maroon/red sand beach and after an easy hike, arrives to a stunning lookout point to enjoy the amazing landscapes. The island is a birdwatcher’s delight. Some of the rarest species are in abundances such as nine varieties of finches, large-billed flycatchers, Galapagos hawks and brown pelicans

Day 4: Disembark | Fausto Llerena Tortoise Breeding Center | Baltra

  • 1 Breakfast
Today, visit Fausto Llerena Tortoise Breeding Center. This is home to tortoises ranging from 3-inches (new hatchlings) to 4-foot long adults. Subspecies of tortoises interact with one another and many of the older tortoises are accustomed to humans, stretching out their heads for a photo opportunity. The babies are kept here until they are about four-years-old and strong enough to survive on their own.

After visiting the breeding center, transfer to Baltra to catch your flight back to the mainland.

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!
