Day by day

Day 1 : San Cristobal Island : Interpretation Center

Departure from Quito/Guayaquil to Baltra island (2 1/2 hours flight). Our natural guides pick up passengers at the airport and take them to the bus stop to board the M/V Galapagos Legend.

Interpretation Center

Dry landing at the Pier. The Interpretation Center provides a wealth of information about the history of Galapagos and its importance in the world. It also outlines threats and conservation efforts. Then, we'll hike up to Frigatebird Hill (Cerro Tejeretas), where we will have great views of both frigate-bird species, as well as beautiful scenery of the bay below.

Day 2 : Española Island: Gardner Bay, Osborn Islet & Suarez Point

Gardner Bay & Osborn Islet

Morning wet landing at Gardner Bay, one of the most beautiful beaches in Galapagos; the long, white sandy beach is lapped by turquoise water and home to a colony Galapagos sea-lions that are indifferent to humans who walk among them. Hood mockingbirds are endemic to this island and will eagerly inspect visitors to satisfy their natural curiosity. Darwin's finches, including an isolated warbler finch, may join the crowd. To add to our adventure, we can snorkel in the bay from the beach and swim with playful Sea-Lions.

Suarez Point

After lunch on board, we dry land at Punta Suarez. This is where we meet a variety of sea lions and marine iguanas. From there, our walk continues with close encounters with boobies and endemic lizards as well as gulls. We have one chance to meet the endangered Waved-Albatross, which is only present on the oldest island of the archipelago during their breeding season (April through December). We can witness their intricate courtship displays with luck.
