Day 1: San Cristobal - Leon Dormido

Arrive at San Cristobal Island Airport and transfer to the Cormorant.

Sail for Kicker Rock, a striking rock formation which juts out of the water and towers above the ocean. Spot a variety of marine life as your snorkel through the canal between the two formations.

Day 2: Espanola

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Journey to Suarez Point to view Blue-footed Boobies, albatrosses and Nazca Boobies. The most famous attraction on Espanola is a magnificent blowhole that spurts water high into the air. Take a two-mile hike across the island.

In the afternoon, travel to Gardner Bay, the breeding site of most of the world´s 12,000 pairs of Waved Albatrosses. Gardner Bay features a large white sandy beach, and the reef makes this location ideal for snorkeling and swimming with sea lions.

Day 3: Floreana

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
In the morning, set sail for Cormorant Point which features a large flamingo lagoon. Take an optional hike or swim in the clear waters.

Travel to Floreana to visit Post Office Bay, where an a wooden barrel was placed by 18th century whalers as an unofficial post office. The tradition has continued to this day, and travelers can leave addressed postcards and sort through the barrel for postcards close to their homes. Delivering one of these postcards is a rewarding experience.

Day 4: Santa Cruz Island - Twin Craters - Baltra

  • 1 Breakfast
You will visit the Twin Craters located opposite to each other on both sides of the road leading from Puerto Ayora to Baltra. The name is only figurative; not real craters, these formations were created by the collapse of surface material in underground fissures and chambers. The view is breathtaking.

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

Beyond expectations! Then again we weren't sure what to expect. Lovely stay at the lodge, met other like-minded travelers (many had their trips planned by Adventure Life) and the owner was a gracious hostess. It felt like you were one happy family, visiting with a favorite aunt.
