Day 1: Baltra | Embark | North Seymour

Arrive to the Galapagos and transfer by bus to your ship, the Galapagos Legend. In the afternoon visit North Seymour Island. This landmass was formed by a series of underwater volcanic eruptions, which deposited layers of lava on the ocean floor. Take part on an approximately two-hour walk amidst large nesting colonies of blue-footed boobies, magnificent and great frigate birds, and swallow-tailed gulls for an in depth encounter with sea bird breeding cycles and sea lions. You can also encounter land iguanas, and on a lucky day, you might even come across the endemic Galapagos snake.

Day 2: Bartolome | South Plazas

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
This morning travel to Bartolome Island and discover a fascinating landscape formed by different volcanic parasitic cones —lava bombs, spatter, cinder cones — that resemble the moon. Going up to the summit observe impressive views of the surrounding islands, including the eroded tuff cone Pinnacle Rock. You can also encounter marine iguanas, lava lizards, and blue-footed boobies. Afterwards enjoy some beach time, a great opportunity to do snorkeling and see the famous Galapagos penguins, sea turtles and white-tipped reef sharks among a great variety of colorful fish. For many visitors, this may turn out to be the best snorkeling experience. Crystal clear water is the perfect spot to appreciate the incredible marine life it has to offer. Due to its geographical location, the lack of vegetation is immediately noticeable however, there are pioneer plants including the endemic Tiquilia nesiotica and Chamaesyce (known as sand mat or spurge in English), lava cactus, and Scalesia bushes.

In the afternoon stop at South Plaza Islet, located east of Santa Cruz Island. Begin a journey along an impressive cactus forest were colorful yellow and red land iguanas live, the population number is around 300 animals; during the dry season they survive on fruits and flowers of the opuntia cacti. A peculiar thing to see in South Plaza is the hybrid iguana (sea and land). When reaching the highest point, tropicbirds can be seen. During the dry season (June – January) the usually greenish and yellowish vegetation change of color creating a bright red landscape (sesuviumedmonstonei plant).

Day 3: Pitt Point | Cerro Brujo, San Cristobal

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Today explore the island of San Cristobal. In the morning we head to Pitt Point and take a high-intensity hike on rocky terrain. The trail includes a 90 meters long, olivine beach and a path that climbs to the top of a volcanic tuff, through several magnificent viewpoints. This is probably the only site where the three booby species of the Galapagos can be seen together, as well as, two species of frigate birds and a sea lion colony. It is also excellent for dinghy rides and snorkeling, where a good range of sea birds can be observed.

This afternoon stop at Cerro Brujo, an eroding tuff cone that at several locations is composed of AA lava formations and a beautiful white sandy beach, great for snorkeling and sunbathing. There is a lagoon visit where migratory bird species can be seen: black-necked stilts, ruddy turnstones, whimbrels, other sandpiper species and white-cheeked pintails. Cerro Brujo offers beautiful views of Kicker Rock, the southern part of San Cristobal and the adjacent coast.

Day 4: Cerro Colorado Tortoise Reserve | Disembark | San Cristobal Airport

  • 1 Breakfast
This morning land at Puerto Baquerizo Moreno and visit the San Cristobal Giant Tortoise Breeding Center to learn about the National Park’s conservation programs. Enjoy a beautiful landscape on the way to the Reserve. You also have the opportunity to visit the village’s port, have a drink or shop for arts and crafts and other souvenirs.

After the visit transfer to San Cristobal Airport for your return flight to Guayaquil or Quito

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.
