…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
Darwin Bay | Genovesa Island | Galapagos

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
Black Turtle Cove Galapagos Islands

…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.

…and sand or pebble beaches. The most emblematic one is the Galapagos Albatross that nests here from April to December, but apart from this huge bird this island is also the home of the naive Hood mockingbirds, Galapagos doves and Galapagos hawks. Several types of reptiles, including the brilliantly colored marine iguana and the oversized lava lizard, are unique to this island
When heavy swells are running, Punta Suarez is also the site of a spectacular blow hole, with thundering spray shooting 30 yards in to the air.

Gardner Bay is on the eastern shore and has a magnificent beach. This white sandy beach is perfect spot for a colony of sea lions, and is also a major nesting site for sea turtles. Around the small islets nearby, snorkelers will find lots of fish and sometimes sea turtles and sharks.

The main town is Puerto Baquerizo Moreno which is located south-west of the island and it is also the capital city of the Galapagos Islands. San Cristóbal is the second most populated Island of the Archipelago. The famous naturalist Charles Darwin who is the author of the Origin of Species landed at San Cristobal in 1835.

Kicker Rock is located 4 miles away from San Cristóbal Island. A site in the middle of the sea composed by 2 vertical cone shaped lava rocks with a height of 145mts from the Ocean. These rocks form a channel that is navigable only by small boats. The snorkeling and diving is great. Frigatebirds and boobies are flying all over the rocks. The sea is crystal clear allowing you to see many colorful tropical fish up to 15mts depth. Take off from San Cristóbal Island

…Española. The small bay on Santa Fe’s northern coast provides one of the most photographed harbors within the archipelago.
A large sea lion colony inhabits most of the surrounding landing site and the trail takes you among very tall forest of Opuntia cacti, where large and somewhat pale land iguanas, that are island endemics, can be seen. This island is also home of a variety of finches, the Galapagos mockingbird and a colony of Galapagos hawks.

Located east of Santa Cruz Island, you can find the Plazas Islands but only South Plazas can be visited and is a home of a large sea lion colony as well as some swallow-tailed gull, land iguanas, lava lizard and marine iguanas.

…of Isabela. The former are the remains of one of the tree jails that used to function during the years of 1946 – 1959 while the latter is an area of saltwater lagoons that provides an excellent opportunity for scenic views and wildlife observation like the flamingos.

Is a breeding center of giant tortoises, which provides the opportunity to observe and understand the programs of the Galapagos National Park protection that works in conjunction with the Charles Darwin Research Station. In the Breeding Centre you can see two of the five sub-species of giant tortoises, which are in the care of the guards. The center was created to protect individuals in their first years of life from introduced animals such as pigs and donkeys.

Day 5: Isabela Island: Punta Moreno & Elizabeth Bay
Punta Moreno Galapagos Islands | Galapagos Cruise | Islabela Island

Punta Moreno is situated on the southwest portion of Isabela one of the youngest island of the Archipelago together with…

…Fernandina. The panga will take you to the rocky landing area but just before reaching this spot you will see many marine iguanas and blue-footed boobies on the rocks. The trail here takes from a young amazing pahoehoe flow field where the visitor can have an idea of the birth of this Archipelago and the amount of magma that a single eruption can be poured by these volcanoes.

A field where only pioneer plants live and brackish ponds or oasis of life are some of the only areas use by the flamingos to feed.

You must visit this spot on board a dinghy (small boat) since there are no landing site yet. You will come across a small group of islets known as Mariela that are frequented by Galapagos penguin, but don’t be disappointed they also visit and frequent this shelter bay form by different types of mangroves which make it really beautiful. Because this area is so shelter and protect from the currents you can find other species like green turtles, rays and different fishes.

Day 6: Isabela Island: Caleta Tagus (Tagus Cove) & Punta Espinoza
Tagus Cove | Isabela Island | Galapagos Islands | Galapagos Cruises

…uphill to Darwin’s Crater salt-water lake for a superb view of the bay and other Isabela volcanoes. A trip along the shoreline will let you see penguins, flightless cormorants, boobies, pelicans and Sally Light foot crabs.

Fernandina is the most western island of the entire Archipelago and the youngest as well, but the life abundance present on this island especially on Punta Espinoza and the lava colors makes you feel as if you are traveling back in time an observing what
most of the earliest navigators saw when they arrive for first time to the islands. Marine iguanas are by the thousand here. Sea lions especially big bulls are found resting on the beach as well as female with its pups. Galapagos hawk juveniles and adults surround this area and can be spotted (with a bit of luck) standing on some mangrove branches. Finally the flightless cormorant and penguin also make this location very beautiful.

Day 7: Santiago Island – Puerto Egas & Rabida Island

The trail on this spot will take you through some tide pools along the coast where you can see marine iguanas, coastal birds like the oystercatcher and pelicans to finish in the beautiful Fur Seal Grottos one of the few places where you will have the opportunity to observe Galapagos fur seals.

Rábida Island lies off the south shoreline of Santiago about 2 hours of navigation and as well as Santiago has an inorganic beach famous for its red color. The trail here takes you from the beach to a salt water lagoon and then to a viewpoint along some Opuntia cacti from where you can take a beautiful picture of the scenery and beautiful cliffs.
