Santa Fe Island - Galapagos Tour

Operation Day: Every Monday
Meeting point: At the entrance of Puerto Ayora’s Church, in front of the pier and aside from the restaurant “El Descanso del Guía”

Arriving site: Puerto Ayora's pier

We will meet at Puerto Ayora's pier early in the morning, beginning the adventure and heading toward Santa Fe Island. Once we have embarked on the Galaxy Daily, we will sail for a couple of hours, during which we will enjoy the view and the soft Galapagos Sea breeze. 

Did you know that Santa Fe Island is one of the oldest islands in the entire Galapagos archipelago?

Indeed, Santa Fe has underwater rock formations dating back approximately 4 million years. Its relatively flat surface is the result of tectonic uplift.

Did you know that at Santa Fe, we can find one of this island's most iconic endemic species?

That's the Santa Fe land iguana, a very characteristic yellowish iguana. The other endemic species is the Santa Fe rice rat; don't worry! This small rat only appears at night.

During this day of adventure, we will also be able to appreciate the largest species of opuntia cactus and the Galapagos hawk (the largest predator on the island), the blue-footed booby, the Galapagos sea lion, the magnificent frigate birds, and the marine iguana, also known as the Galapagos dragon due to its peculiar appearance. 

The landing in Santa Fe will be wet, so we will have to jump on the impressive white sand beach. Several sea lions will immediately receive us, inviting us to start a walk to look for the resident species of Santa Fe. 

Once the walk is over, we can enjoy a swim in the Encañada. Here, we can snorkel and observe sea turtles, rays, sea lions, and colorful fish while swimming in this island's warm, crystalline waters. 

In this itinerary, we will enjoy a delicious lunch on board the Galaxy Daily before a short rest and later navigation back to Santa Cruz Island.
