Day by day

Day 1 : Santa Cruz Island & Bartolome Island

Santa Cruz Island

Departure from Quito/Guayaquil to Baltra (approximately 2 hours flight). Arrive at the terminal and meet our staff. Then, take a bus for ten minutes to the pier. Board the Galapagos Legend and settle in your cabin. Enjoy lunch while you travel to the first destination.

Bartolome Island

This is the archipelago's most famous landscape, with views of Pinnacle Rock and Santiago Island beyond. It's well worth the climb up the wooden boardwalk. This volcanic landscape has been often compared to a lunar one. We might be able to snorkel for 60 minutes here and meet Galapagos penguins as well as curious sea lions or white-tipped sharks.

Day 2 : South Plazas Island & North Seymour Island

South Plazas Island

The tour includes Dry landing in the presence Sea lions, swallowtail gulls, and land iguanas. A red succulent carpet is laid on the small island, topped with Opuntia Cacti. We spend our time at the edge of the cliff watching birds pass by, including frigate birds and flocks red-billed tropicalbirds. We see land iguanas again at sea level. Some of them have even mated with their marine counterparts.

North Seymour Island

Dry landing on the flat, elevated island with rocky-terrain is a good spot to view both great frigate bird males and females. They click, bill-clap, shudder, flapping their wings, and then show off their brightly colored, grossly inflated gular pouches. It is possible to see blue-footed boobies dancing to potential mates while courting. A great time is had by all, with sea lions, swallow-tailed and gulls, crashing waves, and distant views to the Daphne Islands.
