… Majestic staff member and transferred to the yacht. You will be shown to your cabin where you will have some time to settle in before lunch and a welcome briefing.
In the afternoon, you will visit “Fausto Llerena” Giant land tortoises breeding center in Puerto Ayora, Santa Cruz Island, where giant tortoises are bred in captivity; this is home to tortoises ranging from 3-inches (new hatchlings) to 4-feet long adults. Subspecies of the giant tortoises interact with one another, and many of the older tortoises are accustomed to humans stretching out their heads for a photo opportunity. The babies are kept until they are about four-years-old and strong enough to survive on their own.

Day 2: Genovesa Island – El Barranco & Darwin Bay 
Darwin Bay | Genovesa Island | Galapagos

This site is also home to palo santo vegetation as well as red-footed boobies, short-eared lava owls, Galapagos swallows, and Galapagos doves.

In the afternoon, you will visit the white-sand coral beach of Darwin Bay which heads a half mile trail (0,75km) that winds through mangroves filled with land birds. Nazca boobies, red-footed boobies, and swallow-tailed gulls can be spotted here. Further down the path we find tidal pools where sea lions swim playfully. At the end is a spectacular view of a cliff.

Day 3:  Rabida and Chinese Hat

We will start on Rabida’s famous maroon/red sand beach, and after an easy hike, you will arrive to a stunning lookout to enjoy the amazing landscapes. The island is a birdwatcher’s delight. Some of the rarest species are in abundance such as nine varieties of finches, large-billed flycatchers, Galapagos hawks and brown
pelicans.

In the afternoon, you will visit Chinese Hat Islet. This small islet is located near the southeast coast of Santiago Island. Its name comes from the distinct shape of the islet’s summit. This small islet is a great location to view many geological formations such as lava tunnels and lava flows. Some of the lava flows were formed underwater and subsequently raised above sea level. The presence of coral heads on the lava flow indicates this phenomenon.

Day 4:  San Cristobal Island – Witch Hill & Lobos Island

In the afternoon you will take part in an excursion to Lobos Island which means “Sea Lion Island.” This appropriately named island is ripe with noisy, playful, jolly sea lions who will welcome you to their home with open, well, fins. This island also offers great snorkeling opportunities as well as the chance to see blue- footed and Nazca boobies.

Outstanding Cruise

The staff was also friendly and knowledgeable. I would recommend this cruise to anyone who intends to visit the mind-blowing Galapagos Islands. I was thrilled with the trip and the service from Majestic’s crew.

Cherise Rose

The perfect ship

August 30, 2018

My family of five and I knew where we wanted to visit, but we needed someone who can pull it all together into one solid plan and figure out meals, accommodation, fun activities, and much more. We had an amazing family trip around Ecuador and Galapagos. The best part of all, this ship, just perfect!
