Day 1 Santa Cruz

Welcome to the Galapagos! An English-speaking naturalist guide meets you at the VIP lounge at Baltra Airport to escort you on your excursion of the highlands of Santa Cruz Island.  Enjoy a delicious, locally-sourced lunch at a farm in the western hills. Take in the area’s natural beauty, pit craters, lava tunnels, and learn more about the Scalesia and Guayabillo forests. At the Tortoise Reserve, share some time in the giant tortoises’ natural habitat, surrounded by the abundant bird life of the area. End this day at Galapagos Safari Camp with a sunset cocktail followed by dinner.

POSSIBLE DIVE SITES

Floreana Island
One of the older volcanic islands, Floreana, has an excellent selection of diverse dive sites. Most of the interesting activity takes place in the shallows where the current strikes the reefs. We have spotted Galapagos sharks, white tip reef sharks, turtles, stingrays, eagle rays, barracudas, sea lions, and reef fish.

Gordon Rocks
An eroded crater at the top of a tuff cone, Gordon Rocks is one of the best dive sites in the central islands. You might see hammerhead sharks, Galapagos sharks, white tip reef sharks, rays, green turtles, sea lions, Galapagos eels, barracudas, and reef fish.

North Seymour Island
Created by seismic uplift rather than volcanic origin, North Seymour is teeming with life. It is home to many species of shark, including Galapagos white tip and black tip, eagle rays, green turtles, Galapagos eels, barracudas, and more.

Cousins Rock
This is a triangular-shaped rock formation with a breath-taking vertical wall of black coral, invertebrates, and mollusks. It is a combination of shoal and wall diving, in the company of Pacific seahorses, frogfish, Galapagos sharks, white tip reef sharks, turtles, stingrays, spotted eagle rays, barracudas, sea lions, and reef fish.

Bartolomé Island
Despite being one of the younger islands, Bartolomé’s underwater world is stunning—with penguins as a highlight! There is a 10m-deep platform with an enormous variety of reef fish; and on the edge of the platform a 15m-deep submarine canyon, home to white tip reef sharks, mobula rays, stingrays, barracudas, turtles, and a variety of invertebrates and mollusks.

Mosquera Islet
This rocky islet is a popular gathering place for sea lions and an enormous colony of garden eels. The 21m drop-off is ideal for schools of eagle rays, hammerhead sharks, manta rays, and blacktip reef sharks.

Daphne Islet
This is a drift dive along an impressive drop-off at the top of a sloping wall. Close to the islet, you´ll discover coral areas bursting with sea urchins, starfish, and a plethora of cardinalfishes. The area is frequently visited by manta rays, green turtles, sea lions, grunts and snappers, sharks, and eagle rays.

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!
