Day 1 - FRI - Baltra to Highlands (Santa Cruz)

Start your trip with a flight from mainland Ecuador to the Galapagos Islands. The flight from Quito to the Galapagos is approximately 2 ½ hours on a Boeing 727. Upon arrival at Baltra travelers pass through an airport inspection point to insure that no foreign plants or animals are introduced to the islands and to pay the park entrance fee of $100 (unless prepaid), and $10 for the INGALA card, which is an identity card that you need. Guides will meet you, collect your luggage and escort you on the short bus ride to the harbor. Motorized rafts, called pangas will transport you to the Seaman Journey where you'll be welcomed onboard. After departure and lunch, the first island visit is made.

Journeying across Santa Cruz into the highlands visitors are delighted by the island’s variety of life and geology. Beginning at the coast and traveling across Santa Cruz the road departs from Puerto Ayora climbing through the agricultural lands and into the mist-covered forests. Santa Cruz possesses all of the various life zones present in the archipelago. As you travel through these zones birders are enchanted. Whether it’s the bright red feathers of a vermillion flycatcher or one of Darwin’s finch almost every bird present in the islands can be found here. Santa Cruz offers excellent opportunities for viewing wild Galapagos tortoises. Tracking tortoises is not the only exciting activity to be found in the highlands. There are also plenty of lava tubes, sinkholes and craters to explore. Theses eerie formations offer a fascinating hike into the belly of the island to view its volcanic makeup.

Day 2 - SAT - Reef Shark Canal & Wall of Tears (Isabela)

A delightful place reached by a nice zodiac ride, “Tintoreras” are small islands in front of Puerto Villamil coast. There is heron lava on the lookout on mangrove branch, and Galapagos penguins and sea lions often pop out on shore. White-tipped reef sharks are fairly common in the archipelago. Their name in Spanish is Tintorera, thus the name of this site as they are always found here resting in the shallow waters.

In the afternoon, visit the Wall of Tears historic site in Isabela Island. Between 1946 and 1959 Isabela was a penal colony, where prisoners build a wall with huge blocks of lava as punishment. The wall is 100 meters long and 7 meters high. Due to the arduous labor and harsh conditions in which the prisoners lived, this site is known as the wall of tears. A set of stairs provides a bird’s eye view of the wall and the surrounding landscape. You can still see the cement foundations of the USA base dating back to World War II.

Day 3 - SUN - Punta Moreno & Urbina Bay (Isabela)

Punta Moreno is located on the north coast of Isabela Island between the volcano Sierra Negra and Cerro Azul volcano. The trail runs along a lava flow Pahohoe (solidified lava in the form of corrugated or an accordion) into a complex of coastal lagoons, its main attraction are several species of birds which can be found around this lakes and mangroves.

The visitor site Urbina Bay is located at the east base of the Alcedo volcano. The trail starts on the beach where a wet landing is made and runs through sand substrates, pumice rock, lava, coral and vegetable formations in a coastal area that has had a lift. This area is home to large and very colorful Galápagos land iguanas, giant tortoises and Darwin’s finches. Isabela Island’s tortoise population was almost wiped out by goats introduced by whalers, but restoration efforts are paying off, and a mellow hike here often has you sharing the trail with numerous giant tortoises. Perhaps swim or snorkel along the shoreline to encounter flightless cormorants and other marine life while exploring this beautiful cove.

Day 4 - MON - Espinoza Point (Fernandina) & Tagus Cove (Isabela)

Espinoza Point is a place famous for its large colonies of marine iguanas and as the habitat of unique species like the flightless cormorant, Galapagos penguin, Galapagos hawk and Galapagos snake. Located on Fernandina Island, the youngest and most pristine of the Galapagos Islands, this site is very volcanic, with numerous lava types seen during the hikes here.

In the afternoon visit Tagus Cove, a favorite spot for pirates and whalers to inscribe the names of their boats on the island cliffs and rocks. At the start of the walk, going up and passing the staircase, find a small cave with inscriptions dating to Darwin's visit in the 1800s. Hike up to view Darwin Lake.

Day 5 - TUE - Espumilla Beach & Puerto Egas (Santiago)

Espumilla Beach is located in northern coast of Santiago Island in James Bay. During the last presence the El Niño phenomenon, one of the two lagoons in this site, underwent a process of sedimentation, thus causing the disappearance of a representative colony of flamingos. The main attractions are the palo santo forest and the marvelous beach, an important site for nesting marine turtles.

Puerto Egas's black beach is located at the west side of the island and is the main attraction of the island. Their volcanic tuff deposits have favored the formation of this special black-sand beach. This site is called Puerto Egas, because there was an attempt of company of Hector Egas, to start the exploitation of salt, which failed because the price of salt in the continent was very cheap, and did not justify its exploitation in Galapagos. The project was abandoned and they left their infrastructure.

Day 6 - WED - Rabida & Chinese Hat

Rábida Island is unique because the red color of the rocks and sand. The volcanic material in this island is very porous and external factors as rain, salt water and sea breeze have acted as an oxidizing agent. A short walk along a trail lead you to a coastal lagoon behind the beach which permits you to observe the land birds such as finches, doves, yellow warblers, and mocking birds. At the lagoon there is a colony of flamingos.

Chinese Hat is a small islet (1 sq km) located just off the southeastern tip of Santiago Island. It is a recent volcanic cone, shaped like a Chinese hat when seen from north side. On the west you can see lava formations, formed under the sea and raised upward, this is why coral heads are found on the lava. This is an excellent visit for interpretation of geological features such as lava tubes and lava flows. The landscape is covered by sea lions colonies, marine iguanas and Galapagos penguins.

Day 7 - THR - Sullivan Bay (Santiago) & Bartolome Island

Santiago, also called James, or San Salvador Island, is located in the west central part of the Galapagos archipelago. It is the fourth largest island in the archipelago (following Isabela, Fernandina and Santa Cruz). Along with some of the large western volcanoes of Isabela and Fernandina, Santiago is also volcanically active, with many young flows and cones to be seen, particularly along the south, west and east coasts. These may even be seen from the summit of Darwin Volcano and from space. A number of historic eruptions have been reported over the last 2 centuries. Santiago actually consists of two coalesced volcanoes: a typical shield volcano on the northwest end and a low, linear fissure volcano on the southeast end.

Bartolome Island is situated across Sullivan Bay. It has an altitude of 114 meters, from where you can observe one of the most beautiful sceneries of the Galapagos Islands such as: volcanic cones, lunar-like craters, lava fields, and the famous Toba formed pinnacle eroded by the sea. There is very little vegetation on this island, but there are two breathtaking beaches where marine turtles exist and at the base of the pinnacle, as well as a very small colony of Galapagos penguins.

Day 8 - FRI - Bachas Beach (Santa Cruz) & Disembark Baltra

North Seymour is an uplifted (as opposed to volcanic) island and so is generally flat and strewn with boulders. There are good nesting sites here for a large population of magnificent frigate birds. Blue-footed boobies perform their courtship dance in the more open areas and swallow-tailed gulls perch on the cliff edges. Despite the tremendous surf that can pound the outer shore, sea lions haul out onto the beach and can be found bodysurfing. After the morning excursion you will be taken to the Baltra airport for your flight to the mainland.

Itinerary Notes

Use the itinerary as a guide only. Itineraries may be altered due to weather, wildlife, National Park regulation or at the captain's discretion. The ability to be flexible makes this type of small ship cruising unique.

Arrival & Departure

Most flights to the Galapagos will depart Quito or Guayaquil between 7:00am-9:00am on day 1 and return between 2:00pm-5:00pm on the final day. We highly recommend travelers arrive Ecuador 2 days prior to their Galapagos cruise.

Activities

There are numerous opportunities to swim and snorkel. The underwater experience is an integral part of any Galapagos cruise. We encourage all travelers to try snorkeling. Snorkeling gear (mask, snorkel, fins, floating vest and net bag) are available for the duration of the cruise. Sea kayaks are also available aboard Seaman Journey. Shortie wet suits are available for rent and are recommended from June to December.
