Day 1 Baltra | North Seymour | Embark

Arrive at the Baltra airport and transfer to the harbor. Board a panga (motorized raft) and transfer to the Seaman Journey.

In the afternoon, sail for North Seymour, an uplifted, flat island which is strewn with boulders. Walk among frigatebird colonies and view blue-footed boobies as they perform their courtship dance. Snorkel in shallows and watch sea lions body surf in the waves.

Day 2 Genovesa

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
In the morning, travel to El Barranco and take a hike along the volcanic rock. View the fragile lava cliffs in the south and petrels that nest in the cavities of the rocks.

Sail for Darwin Bay and land on its pristine white coral beach. This bay is a favorite for birders, as red footed-boobies, masked boobies, wandering tattlers, lava gulls, whimbrels, yellow-crowned, and black-crowned lava herons, are often seen in the area. Take a trail which leads up a cliff for spectacular views around the island.

Day 3 South Plaza Island | Santa Fe

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Voyage to South Plaza Island to view some of the most interesting species of the Galapagos. Several hybrid iguanas are found on the island, the result of crossing a male marine iguana and a female land iguana. Unique to the island, the iguanas are numerous due to the plentiful tuna in the water.

In the afternoon, visit Santa Fe and snorkel with sea lions and view the plentiful number of birds. Take a trail which passes salt bushes and giant prickly pear cactus.

Day 4 San Cristobal | Disembark

  • 1 Breakfast
In 2004 the Breeding and Rearing Center for young tortoises Jacinto Gordillo, named after a famous settler, was located in Cerro Colorado, San Cristobal Island, in order to take care of young tortoises. In 2008 an assisted reproduction program started on the island with due to the birth of a little turtle in captivity. All of this will be learned at the Jacinto Breeding Center. One can not only learn about breeding processes but as well get engaged and experience why they this breeding centre does what it does.

Our guide and driver were very good with their knowledge and were very helpful with our questions. It was a very pleasant visit that would have been impossible to do on our own. Hotels and restaurants were fantastic. The special places we got to go to, like the kitchens, were great. Enjoyed the entire trip!
