Arrive at Baltra Island Airport and transfer to the Ocean Spray.
Sail for Sombrero Chino (Chinese Hat), named for its volcanic rock shape. View Galapagos wildlife and birds, specifically American oystercatchers, Galapagos penguins, and Sally-Lightfoot crabs as they skirt across the rocks.
Day 2: Vicente Roca Point, Isabela | Espinosa Point, Fernandina
Once upon Isabela, the Galapagos archipelago's youngest and most volcanically active island, visit Vicente Roca Point. Comprised of two separate coves, Vicente Roca is a large bay with spectacular sea life. Seahorses, sea turtles, and Mola-mola are abundant in the water.
In the afternoon, sail for Fernandina. This island was never invaded by foreign animal species, making it one of the most pristine eco-systems in the world. Take a short hike to the Flightless Cormorant nesting site and view the volcano La Cumbre. Throughout the day, snorkle in the clear, blue waters of the Galapagos.
In the morning, take a dinghy to Elizabeth Bay. This bay contains many islets which are frequented by Penguins and Blue-footed Boobies. This area is perfect for snorkeling and viewing schools of colorful fish, sea lions, and even the occasional shark.
In the afternoon, sail for Moreno Point. Hike along several lava paths which take you through tide pools and mangroves.
Head to South Plaza Island to view one of the largest sea lion colonies as well as colorful yellow and red land iguanas. This small island features steep cliffs which were formed by rising lava. The ground is now covered by Opuntia cacti. Take a short hike around the island's unique landscape.
Santa Fe (Barrington) is home to the small picturesque bay and anchorage on the island’s northeast coast. The bay has two visitor trails, one leading to a scenic viewpoint atop a cliff, and the other spanning from a small beach to a tall prickly pear cactus forest
Day 7: Suarez Point | Gardner Bay | Osborn Islet, Espanola
Sail to Suarez Point, a magnificent location for spotting Blue-footed Boobies, albatrosses and Nazca Boobies. The most famous attraction is the island's magnificent blowhole, which spurts water high into the air. Take a hike around the island.
In the afternoon, visit Gardner Bay, the breeding site of most of the world's 12,000 pairs of Waved Albatrosses. The bay is surrounded by white sandy beaches with a myriad of sea lions.
After landing, you can walk across a lovely white sand beach amongst a busy sea lion colony or dive into the water to swim with sea lion pups. This small island is a marine visit where you can enjoy fantastic snorkeling and swimming.
