Day 1 Baltra | Santa Cruz Island | Bachas Beach

Arrive at Baltra Island Airport and transfer to the Cormorant for your private charter of the Galapagos Islands.

Set sail for Bachas Beach, an excellent location for swimming. View flamingos, Sally Lightfoot crabs, hermit crabs, black necked stilts, and whimbrels and explore the floating pier, a remnant of World War II.

Day 2 El Barranco | Darwin Bay

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
El Barranco, also known as Prince Phillip’s Steps, is a steep, rocky path that leads up a high cliff rock 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 owls, Galapagos storm petrels, and Galapagos Doves.

Visit the white-sand coral beach of Darwin Bay which includes a half-mile trail (0,75km) that winds through mangroves filled with land birds. Nazca boobies, red-footed boobies, and swallow-tailed gulls, which can easily be spotted here. Further down the path, we’ll find tidal pools where sea lions swim playfully. At the end is a spectacular view of a cliff.

Day 3 South Plaza Island | Santa Fe

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Travel to South Plaza Island, a small island covered in Opuntia cacti. The island is home to one of the largest sea lion colonies and also features many colorful yellow and red land iguanas. Take a brief hike over the terrain for views of the island.

In the afternoon, set sail for Santa Fe Island and hike its two visitor trails.

Day 4 San Cristobal

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Explore Witch Hill. Eroded by the sea, Witch Hill features white powdery sand and a picturesque beach. Snorkel alongside sea turtles and rays, and view various types of booby birds.

Travel to Pitt Point and take a trail up to the face of a cliff. This hike offers superb views of the island. Snorkel in the clear waters and hope to meet some playful sea lions.

Day 5 San Cristobal | Lobos Island | Disembark

  • 1 Breakfast
Sail for Lobos Islandis - named after the sea lions which rest and play on its rocky shores. The island is also home to blue-footed boobies, great frigatebirds, brown pelicans, lava gulls, common noddies, yellow warblers, and small and medium ground finches. There is good snorkeling in the clear waters of the channel and this is one of the best sites at which to swim with sea lions underwater.

In the afternoon, transfer to the airport with your group for your flight back to the mainland.

The trip might have been the absolute best of our lifetime (thus far). We particularly want to commend our guide Peter in the Guilin area-he was so incredibly attentive, energetic, enthusiastic-and absolutely dedicated to ensuring that our meals were 100% vegetarian.
