Day 1: San Cristobal Airport | David Rodriguez Breeding Center | Embark

This morning arrive at Puerto Baquerizo Moreno on San Cristobal Island. Be met at the airport by staff members and transported to your ship.

In the afternoon, visit the David Rodriguez Breeding Center provides information about the origin and evolution of the giant tortoise and explains why the center is so vital in safeguarding the future of these incredible creatures. Walking through the reserve trails, you can see baby tortoises being reared in semi-natural conditions - a brilliant demonstration of the local people's commitment to preserving the wildlife that makes the Galapagos so unique.

Day 2: Suarez Point | Gardner Bay | Osborn Islets

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Suarez Point is packed with wildlife and is best explored by following the circular walking trail. This walk takes you past nesting sites of large colonies of Nazca and blue-footed boobies and mockingbirds. Also unique to Española island are red and green marine iguanas and the beautiful waved albatrosses that can be seen majestically launching themselves out across the ocean from the cliffs. Visit a geological highlight; several blowholes capable of shooting water 25m into the air make for a spectacular photo.

The pristine white sandy beach of Gardner Bay dotted with sea lions provides a perfect spot to relax, and kayaking or paddle boarding is a fantastic way to observe a large number of waved albatrosses who use this beach as a breeding site. A short panga ride takes you to the Gardner and Osborn Islets, which are superb locations for snorkeling with young sea lions and a variety of colorful tropical fish and corals.

Day 3: Cormorant Point | Champion Islet | Post Office Bay | The Baroness' Lookout

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Cormorant Point features two contrasting beaches: green-tinted sand due to the high content of olivine crystals and pure white sand (commonly known as ‘Flour Beach’) derived from pulverized coral. The saltwater lagoon is a must-see as it is frequented by one of the largest populations of Galapagos flamingos and other shorebirds such as stilts, white-cheeked pintails, and large-billed flycatchers.

A panga ride to Champion Islet, an extinct shield volcano, provides a fantastic opportunity for snorkeling in an area known for having a high diversity of fish.

Post Office Bay is a man-made site that offers an insight into a remarkable mailing tradition developed by British whalers in the 18th century that visitors can still take part in today.

The beach provides good snorkeling and kayaking, and it is also possible to descend into and walk through a lava tube. Next, take a panga ride to the Baroness’ Lookout, a volcanic rock formation named after an Australian baroness who visited the island in the 1930s and is believed to have mysteriously disappeared. A short trail leads to a brilliant vantage point with panoramic views of the surrounding mangroves and coastline.

Day 4: Mosquera Islet | Disembark | Baltra Airport

  • 1 Breakfast
Mosquera Islet is a small, flat, sandy islet located between Baltra and North Seymour islands. With no fixed trail, you are free to explore the beautiful surroundings on foot, where you can encounter a large population of sea lions, shorebirds, and the striking Sally Lightfoot crabs that cling to the dark rocks. 
The numerous coral reefs also make it a fantastic site for snorkeling and catching sight of a range of marine life, including sharks, turtles, and rays.

Transfer from the yacht to the airport.

This was my first experience with Adventure Life - and I couldn't have been more pleased with the trip. The guides and local staff in both Buenos Aires and Uruguay were terrific - extremely helpful and accommodating. I really enjoyed meeting the friendly staff in Buenos Aires in person (I left my bags with them for the afternoon).
