ITINERARY

Day 1

Quito - Ecuador

Arrival in Quito Ecuador. Day of rest. Overnight at the Hotel.

Day 2

This is a day of leisure. A variety of tours are available on that day. Overnight at the Hotel.

Day 3

Baltra Island / Embark / Initiation of cruise

Arrival in Baltra Island and transfer by bus to the dock to board the yacht La Pinta. Assigned cabins and introductory welcome talk and lunch.

In the afternoon we will visit Santa Cruz Island and enjoy a panga ride among the islands lined by mangroves, this will allow the observation of birds and spectacular views of the coast. Most commonly, the black lava reveals the presence of marine iguanas, we can also find sea turtles, stingrays and sharks in turquoise waters. After the panga ride, enjoy a trip to a brackish water lagoon frequented by flamingos, ducks and a variety of terrestrial birds. Further along the trail from the summit of Cerro Dragon, we will have beautiful views, a large number of land iguanas and bird watching.

Day 4

Bartolome Island / Fernandina Island

At Bartolome Island we will walk to the summit. We will climb with the help of a wooden staircase, once at the top will find that our climb was worth it for the breathtaking view we have. There will be time for a panga ride around Pinnacle Rock to observe penguins, make snorkeling, swimming at the beach or a walk on the glass bottom boat. Lunch on board.

Fernandina is one of the younger volcanic islands of our planet. Large amounts of dark lava flows and black dominate the land here. The refreshing green of the mangroves provide refuge for sea lions and other species. This island is home to the only cormorant that stopped flying: The Galapagos flightless cormorant. If black stones seem to move silently, most likely you are seeing the largest clusters of marine iguanas in the archipelago. Observe them grazing in emerald-green algae.

Day 5

Isabela Island

To the west, this island is the result of a merger volcanic six volcanoes have teamed up to create an island that is shaped like a sea horse. Here, land iguanas roam the land next to giant tortoises like a bulldozer. A large piece of land reveals a "not so distant" volcanic past. Find marine bony skeletons as evidence that this was once the ocean and now is land. The plankton-rich waters attract a meeting with the Goliaths of the ocean: whales.

Day 6

Floreana Island

Disembark at Punta Cormorant on a beach glass for an easy walk that includes a brackish water lagoon where bird species like Greater flamingos, Pintail ducks, common stilts, herons, and others can be seen. This tour also includes a white sand beach where sea turtles come out at night for nesting (from December to May). Skin diving can take place from the beach, and for the experienced marine enthusiasts, Devil's Crown may be an option. Divers can not fail to enjoy an introduction to the Marine Reserve at the bottom of the glass bottle.

Day 7

Santa Cruz Island

In the morning a bus ride will take us to the highlands of Santa Cruz for breakfast in one spot. Then most famous see reptiles Islander: giants turtles wild. The vegetation, including forest escalesia, and birds such as flycatchers, you'll love. We search for Darwin's finches (most of them from the tree finch group), in particular the famous woodpecker finch.

Day 8

James Island / Rabida Island

Santiago (James) was the favorite island of Charles Darwin. He was amazed by the many different types of habitats seen there. For now, it's easy to understand why the Galapagos was a real wake-up call for him. The eroded shores of this island include beaches made of black volcanic ash. This place has one of the rarest mammals in the tropics: the fur seals. What are you doing a furry animal in the tropics?, Galapagos hawks patiently looking alligators and herons patiently looking fish. If you have a good eye for migratory birds, be prepared for a reasonable number of new records.

The color red is not common in the Galapagos. A male frigate carrying a red bag, like an Oystercatcher has a red bill. At higher elevations a male flycatcher stands out among the plants, like red hot lava flows gently on black slopes. Genovesa Island shows the unusual red soil contrasting with the blue ocean. This is an artist's dream come true. Pelicans nest here, and his neighbors are peaceful sea lions resting on the red sand. Another step will surprise and sea creatures.

Day 9

North Seymour Island / Sombrero Chino

Here, it seems that only a volcano collapsed and sank. In fact, the opposite occurred, a volcano rising from the depths of the ocean and formed the North Seymour Island. White and brown rocks hold a large quantity of life, but this is where sounds are most impressed. Seabirds are always looking for mates or food. Observe a male frigate and his bag of scarlet-red color to attract your partner, or watch a couple of blue-footed boobies parade. Look carefully around the edges, such as crabs add color to these dark stones. The crystal clear waters of the ocean bottom will show you how sea lions swim peacefully. This is where humans do not touch nature, but nature plays to humans.

Sombrero Chino is perhaps one of the most remarkable examples of volcanic activity. This volcanic cone is surrounded by aquamarine colors mixed with black basalt. This small island is a satellite of the nearby James Island. Their isolated white sand beaches are host to sea lions, marine iguanas and marine diversity. Rays, fish, penguins, and more, are common in this picturesque place.

Day 10

San Cristobal Island / Disembark / flight to Quito

Transfer to airport for your return flight. Afternoon rest. Overnight at a hotel in Quito.
