The sand of the beach is made of decomposed coral, making it white and soft, while
it is also one of the favorite nesting places of sea turtles. Nearby, we can also find a small lagoon
where we will be able to observe flamingos, black-necked stilts, thrushes, as well as two old ships
that were abandoned during the Second World War. Furthermore, we will also find sea lions,
marine iguanas, and seabirds resting on the beach. We will enjoy the tranquility of the beach as

that dominate the area. These include red-footed boobies, Nazca boobies, swallow-tailed gulls,
Galápagos petrels, seabirds, Darwin finches, mockingbirds, and Galápagos doves.

islands. We will have the opportunity to snorkel, kayak, hike, and take a ride in a panga.

DAY 3 – Sunday

AM» Visit South Plazas Island

PM» Visit Santa Fe Island
South Plazas

These islands have an unusual vegetation, which creates an interesting landscape that
helps to enhance the fauna and the flora of the Galápagos. It is also possible to observe land iguanas
in the shade of cacti. The main attractions of the Plaza Islands include land iguanas, sea lions, and
swallow-tailed gulls, as well as lizards, island insects, red-beaked sparrows, frigate birds, and pelicans
that glide down the cliffs. Then we will return to the yacht for lunch and a deserved rest.

Santa Fe

An extremely scenic island, where we can visit two different trails, with one of
them leading to a beautiful viewpoint on the top of a cliff, where you can find endemic land iguanas
of the island. The other trail is a small circular path close to the beach, where we will be able to
observe another colony of land iguana. Here we will also have the possibility to kayak, snorkel,
panga ride, or walk, in order to observe and enjoy nature. Then we will return to the yacht for
dinner and a time of relaxation.

DAY 4 – Monday

AM»San Cristóbal: Visit Punta Pitt

PM»San Cristóbal: Visit Kicker Rock and Isla Lobos
Punta Pitt

Considered as one of the most beautiful and impressive sites in the Galápagos, it has
become one of the favorite nesting sites for seabirds. Here we will be able to see three species of
frigate birds and their nesting sites in the same area. Then we will return to the yacht for lunch.

Kicker Rock & Isla Lobos
Kicker Rock: Is a gigantic and impressive rock formation known locally as ‘León Dormido’ where we
can see a multitude of blue-footed boobies, masked boobies, pelicans and sea birds that will delight
us with their majestic flights to be photographed.
Later we head towards Isla Lobos, an islet separated from San Cristóbal Island by a narrow stretch
of calm waters. On the islet we will take a walk that will allow us to observe frigates, blue-footed
boobies, masked boobies, a colony of sea lions and we will also be able to snorkel in the arm of the
sea, probably with the company of sea lions and different kinds of colorful fish. The atmosphere is
one of tranquility and primitive beauty, a typical environment of the Galapagos Islands.
DAY 5 – Tuesday

AM»Visit the Galapagos Tortoise Breeding Center in Cerro Colorado

PM»San Cristóbal: Centro de Interpretación y Cerro Tijeretas.
Cerro Colorado

In the morning, our guide will take us to the top of San Cristóbal Island. Following, our tour has 2
options. The first option starts from Puerto Baquerizo Moreno, and involves a visit to the El Junco
Lagoon. For hundreds of years, rain water and condensation have caused an accumulation of water
in the caldera of an extinct volcano, creating a paradise for frigate birds and turtles.
Alternatively, we will visit the “Cerro Colorado” turtle breeding center. There we will have a pleasant
walk along a path that allows us to be in close contact with the turtles, that can vary from the smallest
to the oldest of giants.

Centro de Interptretación & Tijeretas

Interpretation Center of San Cristobal, located on the outskirts of the small town of Puerto
Baquerizo Moreno, the capital city of the Galápagos province. The interpretation center will give
us an introduction to the islands, and their natural, as well as human history. After, we will walk to
the place known as ‘La Colina de las Fragatas’, or ‘Cerro Tijeretas.
This short 30-minute walk starts from the interpretation center and takes you to the top of the hill.
Once there, the visitors can enjoy a spectacular sight of the surrounding white beaches and the
incredible geographical formations of the Pacific Ocean. The hill is often visited by Frigate birds
that nest there in certain seasons of the year. From the hill we will descend into a small cove known
as Punta Carola, where we will observe a colony of sea lions.
At night (if you want) you can go into the city for a walk and maybe have a drink at one of the local
bars.

DAY 6 – Wednesday

AM»Española: Visit Punta Suárez

PM»Española: Visit Gardner Bay
Punta Suarez

A destination of great interest due to the abundance of birds. This island also has its
own species of animals, like the Española Mockingbird, which has a distinctively longer and more
curved beak than variations found on other islands; The Galápagos lava lizard; The marine iguana of
the venustissimus subspecies, that has red marks on its back; among others. We can also observe
seagulls and other tropical birds that live on the rocky slopes. Among the more interesting attractions
is the waved albatross, as almost the entire world population comes to breed here between March
and December, and the mating dance of the blue-footed booby. There are hundreds of nazca
boobies, colonies of sea lions, large colonies of marine iguanas and different species of birds.

Gardner Bay

A beautiful beach that is excellent for swimming and snorkeling. Here we can find
a large colony of playful sea lions and hopefully observe the Galápagos Peregrine Falcons and local
species of snakes, while we will undoubtedly see Darwin’s finches, mockingbirds and sea turtles.

DAY 7 – Thursday

AM»Floreana: Visit Punta Cormorán and Devil’s Crown

PM»Floreana: Visit Post Office Bay and Asilo de la Paz
Punta Cormoran & Devil’s Crown

A site that has the best and the biggest flamingo lagoon of the Galápagos. It is
located between two volcanic hills that gives the area a special atmosphere. There are varieties of sea
birds that can be seen in addition to flamingos, the most frequent ones being stilts, white-tailed ducks
and other migratory birds.
This is a unique area due to the high percentage of endemic plants (unique to the island). Here we can
see the “Green Beach” (due to the high percentage of olivine crystals in the sand) and the “Flour Sand
Beach” mainly composed of coral reefs, making these the two most interesting beaches of the
islands. Then we return to the yacht to begin our snorkeling activity at the location known as the
Devil’s Crown. This is a sunken volcanic crater where the interior of the formation is ideal for the
sustainability of a marvelous coral reef habitat, making it one of the most fascinating marine sites in
the Galápagos.

Post Office

Historically, it served as a letter exchange station in the 18th century when the
crew of a whaling ship utilized a wooden barrel. Both sailors and tourists have used this system to
communicate with people from all around the world. The idea is to bring letters or postcards to
their destination by hand, creating a very special “postal service” This site was also the landing
place for some of the first settlers on the islands. Then we will visit the Asilo de la Paz, known for
its strange history as one of the first occupied areas of the islands by the German Witmer family.
We return to the yacht and head to Puerto Ayora, the largest city in the Galápagos.
If we are lucky, we may see a pod of dolphins during our trip, as well as manta rays and sea turtles.

DAY 8 – Friday
AM»Visit Charles Darwin Station – Transfer from ship to Baltra airport
Charles Darwin Station
After breakfast, we will visit an interesting location, before departing for the airport. We will visit the
Fausto Llerena Interpretation Center where you can see different sizes and species of tortoises. If we
have time, we can also visit the special compartment where the embalmed body of the famous giant
tortoise “Solitario George” is on display. Then we will be transported to the Itabaca channel, which we will cross with a local ferry, and then will take a bus to the Baltra Island Airport. Our trip ends here. We will say goodbye to our guide and to the Galápagos Islands, who will be waiting for your next visit.
