Monday: San Cristobal Island: El Junco Lagoon

Arrive to the Capital of Galapagos, Puerto Baquerizo Moreno in San Cristobal Island where you’ll be greeted by the yacht’s friendly Staff who will take you to your beautiful yacht for settling and Lunch.

PM: El Junco Lagoon

The Junco Lagoon, located about 700m above sea level, is one of the few permanent freshwater bodies in the Galapagos. Frigate birds are often seen here washing the salt from their feathers as well as white-cheeked pintails and common gallinules. Its name comes from a type of plant that is common in this area called “junco”.

AM: Post Office Bay

back in the 18th century, whalers passing through the islands placed a wooden barrel in a lovely sandy-beach on Floreana Island for use as an unofficial mail box. The tradition continues today as visitors leave addressed postcards in the barrel and sort through left mail to deliver at home.

PM: Cormorant Point & Devil’s Crown

Cormorant’s Point hosts a large flamingo lagoon where also other birds such as common stilts and white-cheeked pintails can be seen. The beaches on this island are distinct: The “Green Beach” named so due to its green color, which comes from a high percentage of olivine crystals in the sand, and the “Four Sand Beach” composed of white coral.
Devil’s Crown is considered as one of the best snorkeling sites in the Galapagos, a volcanic crater has been eroded by the waves leaving the northern and southern sides poking out of the water. The coral reef in the middle is perfect for attracting marine life. Snorkelers enjoy the variety of marine life and exciting currents that rush through the crown creating an exhilarating experience.

 

AM: Suarez Point

One of the best sites to spot blue-footed boobies, Waved-Albatrosses and Nazca boobies , Tropical-bird, Mockingbirds and more with a beautiful location on the ocean front where the large Waved-albatrosses use the cliff as a launching pad. The famous attraction is the magnificent blowhole, spurting water high into the air. This site presents wonderful photograph opportunities.

PM: Gardner Bay

Gardner Bay, on the eastern side of the island, is the breeding site of nearly all of the world´s 12,000 pairs of waved albatrosses. It has a large white-sand beach with hundreds of sea lions, perfect for relaxing and enjoy the landscape; its rocky shores make this site a great place for diving and snorkeling.

AM: Twin Craters

 “Los Gemelos” or Twin Craters are located opposite each other on both sides of the road leading from Puerto Ayora to Baltra. The name is only figurative; not real craters, these formations were created by the collapse of surface material in underground fissures and chambers. The view is breathtaking.

Continue to Baltra Airport to board your flight back to the Mainland.
