…The flight from Quito (via Guayaquil) to the Galapagos is approximately 2 hours. Upon arrival at Baltra travelers pass through an airport inspection point to ensure that no foreign plants or animals are introduced to the islands and to pay the park entrance fee of $100 (unless prepaid as in your case). Guides will meet you, collect your luggage and escort you on the short bus ride to the harbor. Motorized dinghy, called ‘Pangas ’will transport you to the motor yacht Eden and our crew will welcome you on board. After departure and lunch, the first island visit is made.

Las Bachas is a white sandy beach that is a major egg – laying site for sea turtles, Las Bachas refers to the abandoned barges by the USA navy officers. On shore are marine iguanas, and, in the lagoon, flamingos could be observed.

Day 2: Genovesa Island: Darwin’s Bay & Prince Philip’s Steps

When arriving to Pitt Point, it will feel almost like you’ve landed on an extraterrestrial planet. You can see the many different…

…Tower is a collapsed volcano and ships sail directly into its large breached caldera to anchor at the foot of the steep crater walls. Tower attracts vast numbers of pelagic sea birds that come here to nest and breed: great frigate birds, red – footed boobies,
swallow-tailed gulls and storm petrels. A trail leads from a coral beach to an area of low shrubs and red mangrove populated by red-footed bobbies and frigatebirds, then along some tidal lagoons where lava gulls and yellow-crowned night herons are seen and eventually ends on a cliff edge where seabirds soar.

After climbing up the Prince Philip´s Steps a trail will lead you to an open area where is common to see masked boobies, frigates, and red – footed boobies. At the end of this trail are thousands of wedge-rumped storm petrels at the cliff’s edge, which
choose many crevices as nesting area in the lava field. Short-eared owls can sometimes be seen here, hunting the storm petrels during daylight hours.

Day 3:  Bartolome Island & Santiago Island: Sullivan Bay 
Bartolome Island Galapagos Islands

Bartolome is a small island that has beautiful white sandy beaches, luxuriant green mangroves and a colony of penguins…

…Activities will include swimming, snorkeling, panga ride and a climb to the summit of the island for one of the most breath taking views in all the Galapagos. From the sumIt you will have the best view of the often photographed Pinnacle Rock.

Sullivan Bay is located at the East of Santiago Island. The lava field with its fascinating shapes and textures is what visitors mostly like. The black lava flows here seem as if they just cooled off the day before. The lava from Sullivan Bay is known as Pahoehoe (Hawaiian for Rope). The thin lava molten material cools down after an eruption causing the surface materials to clasp creating the shape of a rope. Pahoehoe lava is very common to the volcanoes of the Galapagos Islands. Take a look at the crystallized volcanic glass along the 2 km trail around the bay and the volcanic cones that were once rocky islets before the lava flows.

Day 4:  Santa Cruz Island: Black Turtle Cove & Dragon Hill

…The panga will take you into a tidal lagoon to see a shelter bay form by different type of mangroves: red, white and black. White – tipped sharks, spotted eagle rays, golden rays and green turtles frequent the waters of this area and are common to see.

Dragon Hill is an area well known by the presence of land iguana (dragons), but in order to get there first you have to walk through a sandy beach and quite close to salt water lagoons where wading birds sometimes are found.

Day 5:  Santa Cruz Island: Charles Darwin Research Station & Transfer out

We will end our day with a visit to Lobos Island an important nesting site for blue footed boobies and frigate birds. From our boat we will be able to observe the booby mating ritual where they dance in circles and gather twigs for the nest.

My family and I had a great time visiting the Galapagos Islands, Ecuador and Peru. Our tour guides were very well informed and personable; particularly Gabriel, who even went a step further to tell us all about his home city Cusco, and the Sacred Valley.
