Coral I & Coral II Galapagos Cruises

Coral I or Coral II cruises to the Galapagos Islands combine the versatility and intimacy of a yacht with the comfort and space of a small ship. The sister ships cruise the same itinerary side-by-side, offering the chance for larger groups, including extended families on Galapagos family cruises, to experience the Galapagos while maintaining a very intimate feel.

The 36-passenger Coral I and the 20-passenger Coral II each offer ample sun and observation deck space, an outdoor Jacuzzi and delicious cuisine. Three categories of cabins are roomy and comfortable but simple with private bathrooms, lower beds and windows or portholes. Activities on the Corals include hiking, snorkeling (deep-water snorkeling available on select itineraries), swimming and kayaking. 

The Corals operate four Galapagos cruise itineraries (two 4-day cruises and two 5-day cruises), which can be combined in various ways to create longer 8-, 11-, 12-day or 15-day cruises. We look forward to having you join us for the trip of a lifetime! Call today to learn more about the Galapagos Coral I or Coral II cruises.

The 4-day Corals Eastern Galapagos Cruise visits Baltra, Santa Cruz, Mosquera Islet, North Seymour, Santa Fe, South Plaza and San Cristobal islands, with daily activities such as kayaking, snorkeling, swimming and hiking. For those interested, there may be scuba diving options (added cost upon availability). The Corals Eastern Islands Cruise can be combined with the Southern or Western Islands Cruise to create an 8-day/7-night itinerary.

The 5-day Corals Western Galapagos Cruise visits Baltra, Santa Cruz, Isabela, Fernandina and Santiago islands. The western exposure means opportunities for spotting Galapagos penguins and exploring the youngest and most volcanically active islands in the archipelago. The Corals Western Islands Cruise can be combined with the Central or Eastern Islands Cruise to create an 8-day/7-night itinerary.

The 4-day Corals Central Galapagos Cruise sails round-trip from Baltra, focusing on the central islands of Santa Cruz, Bartolome, Santiago and Rabida Island. Take advantage of daily kayaking, snorkeling, swimming or hiking, and for those interested scuba diving may be an option (added cost upon availability). The Corals Central Islands Cruise can be combined with the Western or Southern Islands Cruise to create an 8-day/7-night itinerary. 

The 5-day Corals Southern Islands Galapagos Cruise starts in San Cristobal and ends in Baltra, visiting the southernmost islands of Espanola, Floreana and the central island of Santa Cruz. Activities include kayaking, snorkeling, swimming and hiking. For those interested, there may be scuba diving options (added cost upon availability). The Corals Southern Islands Cruise can be combined with the Central or Western Islands Cruise to create an 8-day/7-night itinerary.

No matter the itinerary, a Coral Galapagos cruise is sure to be the trip of a lifetime. Want to make your own itinerary? Consider the 20-guest or 36-guest Coral ships for one of our private Galapagos yacht charters.

Day 1
WED - Embark San Cristobal to Interpretation Center & Tijeretas Hill (San Cristobal)

Arrive in the Galapagos and be picked up at the Baltra Airport by your naturalist guide. Take a 10-minute bus drive to the pier to board the M/Y Coral I or M/Y Coral II. In the afternoon, explore the interpretation center, which is full of interesting information regarding the formation of the Galapagos, its significance in the world, threats and conservation efforts. Hike to Frigatebird Hill (Cerro Tijeretas) and observe both species of frigatebird, with the bonus of a beautiful view of the bay below.

THU - Cerro Brujo & Pitt Point (San Cristobal)

In the morning, make a wet landing and be humbled by the immensity of the stunning cliffs of Cerro Brujo. Share the beach with sea lions, snorkel from shore or walk to a hidden lagoon to spot black-necked stilts, ruddy turnstones, whimbrels and white-cheeked pintails.

In the afternoon, make a wet landing at Punta Pitt, where sea lions lounge on the beach. Climb to a high point on the steep eroded tuff cone, the only place where all three booby species are in the same place. The red-foots are perched on the cordia lutea and small trees, the Nazcas are on the ground near the cliff edge, while the blue-foots will be a little further inland. Frigatebirds fly around as well and the views are breathtaking.

Day 3
FRI - Suarez Point & Gardner Bay (Espanola)

Begin today with one of the highlight visits of the Galapagos: Punta Suarez seems to have everything—a naturalist’s paradise. A slew of marine iguanas and sea lions bombard the landing site. Walk past them along a path for close encounters with boobies, endemic lizards, gulls and even a dramatic blow hole. The oldest island in the archipelago is the only opportunity to commune with the endemic waved albatross during their breeding season between April and December. With luck, watch their complex courtship display.

This afternoon is spent at Gardner Bay, one of the most stunning beaches in all of Galapagos. The long, white sandy beach, lapped by turquoise waters, is home to a colony of Galapagos sea lions, indifferent to the humans who walk among them. The Hood mockingbirds, endemic to Espanola Island, eagerly inspect their visitors to satisfy their innate curiosity. Darwin’s finches may also join the throng, including the reclusive warbler finch. Snorkeling from the beach in the shallow bay is a perfect end to the day.

Day 4
SAT - Cormorant Point, Devil's Crown, Champion Islet & Post Office Bay (Floreana)

Today, begin at Cormorant Point, where olivine, a volcanic crystal, has proffered a subtle green hue on the dark beach. Walk past island-endemic scalesia plants to a large, shallow lagoon often inhabited by a variety of shockingly pink greater flamingoes. Continue through a forest of palo santo trees to arrive at a powdery white beach, a nesting area of green turtles. In the shallow water spot diamond stingrays and white-tipped reef sharks.

At Devil’s Crown, an eroded volcanic cone and one of the favorite snorkeling sites in the islands, swim with an abundance of fish and marine animals, including schools of yellowtailed surgeonfish, salemas and creolefish, and with luck turtles, spotted eagle rays, parrotfish and even hammerhead sharks. The jagged crown is a roosting area for boobies, noddies, tropicbirds and frigates. Next visit Champion Islet, a truly magical place to snorkel, where green turtles, harmless white-tipped reef sharks, an impressive diversity and abundance of fish and playful sea lions often approach. Champion Islet also happens to be the last remaining home of the island-endemic Floreana mockingbird.

In the afternoon, visit Post Office Bay, claimed to have been first set up in 1793 by Captain James Colnett and remaining the oldest functioning post office in the Pacific. The system was that whalers and fur sealers would leave addressed letters in the barrel to be picked up by homeward bound colleagues. In the spirit of maintaining tradition, visitors today will often take letters and hand-deliver them in their home countries.

Day 5
SUN - Highlands Tortoise Reserve (Santa Cruz) & Disembark Baltra

This morning begins with a dry landing and a 45-minute drive to the Santa Cruz Highlands to admire different kinds of birds, such as tree and ground finches, vermillion flycatchers, paint-billed crakes, yellow warblers and cattle egrets (usually standing on the tortoises’ shells). The journey to the reserve offers great opportunities to see the contrasts of the island’s various ecosystems. The road goes from the coast through the agricultural zone and straight up to the dense humid forests. Often, Galapagos giant tortoises are seen along the way wandering through pastures in the paddocks. This is a birdwatcher’s haven, since almost every land bird present on the island lives or migrates here. After the visit, be transferred to the Baltra Airport for your return flight to the mainland.

Day 2
THU - Vicente Roca Point (Isabela) & Espinosa Point (Fernandina)

This morning, visit Vicente Roca Point on Isabela Island, a spectacular visitor site surrounded by immense cliffs of the eroded volcano. Studded with resting seabirds such as brown noddies and Nazca boobies, the cliffs are easily viewed from pangas. Snorkeling here is superb, with certain species of fish only found in the west of the archipelago, and the chance to swim with penguins and potentially a plethora of green turtles.

After lunch make a dry landing at Espinosa Point on the youngest island in the Galapagos and one of the most pristine in the world. Fernandina is simply the marine iguana capital of the world. This desolate volcanic backdrop is home to a huge concentration of these enigmatic reptiles. Incongruously sharing the same shoreline is the diminutive Galapagos penguins. Enjoy the exciting opportunity to snorkel with marine iguanas feeding underwater, penguins, turtles and the bizarre, endemic, flightless cormorants.

Today, anchor in Urbina Bay, and at the far end of the morning’s long but level hike, arrive at a strange phenomenon where large blocks of coral lie completely exposed after a dramatic geological uplift in 1954. Located at the western base of Alcedo Volcano are some very impressive land iguanas and some of the volcano’s endemic Galapagos giant tortoises during the wet season.

This afternoon, visit Tagus Cove, once a well-known hideout and deep water anchorage for pirates. Tagus Cove was also one of the few sites visited by Charles Darwin and the HMS Beagle in 1835. A beautiful hike leads past an overview of Darwin Lake and on to a stunning volcanic landscape revealing Isabela Island’s dramatic northern volcanoes. Later, snorkel along a submerged wall with turtles, myriad fish, penguins and potentially flightless cormorants. You might even be tempted by a panga ride or kayak!

Day 4
SAT - Egas Port & Sullivan Bay (Santiago)

This morning’s visit to Egas Port is impressive, as the black volcanic sand sets this landing apart from most. It is best known for the dramatic shoreline where a host of species have chosen to live between land and sea. Unique among these are the endemic Galapagos fur seals, who maintain a small colony at the end of the walk. Other species of note include American oystercatchers, sea lions, waders, herons, lava lizards and even Galapagos hawks. An optional visit leads to an abandoned salt mine famous in its day for supplying salt to mainland Ecuador.

In the afternoon, visit Sullivan Bay. Although when viewed from the sea, the site does not look especially interesting, prepare to be enthralled by the amazing beds of pahoehoe lava from the recent flow on the island. It is a landscape and macro photographer’s dream. Learn about the importance of pioneer plants such as the tiny mollugo while hiking over the lava. End the day with a refreshing snorkel in the company of sea lions, turtles and rays.

MON - Dragon Hill (Santa Cruz) & Bartolome

A small lava dock offers today’s first encounters with marine iguanas that blend perfectly with the dark rock. Walk past large prickly pear cacti and arrive at one end of a long, sickle-shaped beach and see Dragon Hill in the distance. Take a circular path by a shallow lake where flamingoes frequently feed. Waders such as stilts, turnstones and sandpipers work the muddy edges, frenetically looking for food. Continue inland to a dry, forested habitat where land iguanas nest and burrow.

In the afternoon, visit Bartolome Island, where one of the most iconic landscapes of the entire archipelago can be viewed from the top. The famous Pinnacle Rock and the austere Santiago Island beyond is well worth the climb up the wooden boardwalk. This volcanic scene has often been likened to a lunar landscape. Subsequent snorkeling opportunities offer the chance to swim with Galapagos penguins, white-tipped reef sharks and playful sea lions.

TUE - Rabida to Buccaneer Cove & Espumilla Beach (Santiago)

Wake up with a visit to Rabida Island at the heart of the archipelago. This dramatic island, with its distinctive red-sand beach, is home to sea lions, mockingbirds, finches, endemic Galapagos doves and vermillion flycatchers. Walk through a forest of palo santo and cacti to a beautiful overview of the bay. Snorkeling here can be excellent, often with large schools of black-striped salemas, sea lions and the ubiquitous turtles.

This afternoon, visit Buccaneer Cove, featuring the remains of an eroded shoreline, home to seabirds, fur seals and the playful sea lions. Its different shapes have been made throughout a process caused by erosion due to the waves and the wind. Espumilla Beach is a white-sand beach in James Bay, where mangroves and a small palo santo forest lead to salt-water lagoons that are home to wading birds like flamingos. The upper dunes are a nesting site for sea turtles. Snorkeling here offers a good chance of seeing rays.

Arrival & Departure

Most flights to the Galapagos will depart Quito or Guayaquil between 6:00am and 11:00am on day 1 and return between 2:00pm and 6:00pm on the final day. We highly recommend travelers arrive to Ecuador two days prior to their Galapagos cruise. If you would like assistance with international flights, please visit our Booking Flights resource page.

Internal Flights

Flights from mainland Ecuador (Quito or Guayaquil) to the Galapagos are not included in the cruise price, but are arranged for you by AdventureSmith Explorations through your ship. Your Adventure Specialist will book these flights for you on the scheduled Galapagos flight for your particular departure. Airfares vary by departure; your Adventure Specialist will detail these for you in their proposal and on your invoice. On flights from mainland Ecuador to the Galapagos Islands, baggage weight limits are currently 50 pounds for checked items, and 17 pounds for carry-on plus a small personal item. Subject to change. Please note that a logistics fee of $90 per person will be assessed if you do not purchase Galapagos flights in conjunction with your cruise.

Activities

There are numerous opportunities to hike, kayak, 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 provided. Kayaks are available for rent for a fee. Wetsuits are available, either free of charge or to rent for a fee (see Inclusions and Exclusions), and are recommended from June to December. For certified SCUBA divers, an optional (added cost) excursion is available during the cruise and includes 2 half-day immersions (30-60 minutes), pick up and drop off from cruise ship, transportation to/from dive site, dive equipment, snack and beverages. PADI license is manditory. Diving excursions must be booked in advanced, based upon availability.

Daily excursions from the boat to the islands will be made in pangas (inflatable skiffs). Trip members will hike from the landing point to specific areas for wildlife observation. Hiking time for most landings will be a couple of hours round-trip with lots of time to stop to study, photograph and enjoy the flora and fauna. Some landings are dry but many are “wet,” requiring cautious footing on slippery rocks. The boat staff will be on hand to assist.

Room Configuration

Single travelers wishing to book a double-occupancy cabin may do so at a 50% supplement of the per-person listed rate in select cabins upon availability and a 75% supplement during holiday season. Select Junior category cabins are available for triple occupancy with a 25% fare reduction for the third person sharing with 2 full-fare paying guests. For extended cruises (7 or more nights), passengers may be required to change yachts in the middle of the cruise.

Families & Children

Kids under 12 years old at the time of sailing receive a 50% discount if sharing a cabin with two full-fare paying guests (discount is 25% during holiday season), and a 25% discount if sharing a cabin with one full-fare paying guest (no discount during holiday season), Junior cabin category only (where triples can be accommodated). Quadruple accommodation is available for two adults plus two children under 12 years old at time of sailing with a 50% discount per child sharing with two full-fare paying guests. In the case of three children plus one adult willing to share a cabin, a 50% discount will be applied to two children (discount is 25% during holiday season) and the third child will pay in full.

The minimum child age is 7 years old. Kids can enjoy different activities offered on board like stargazing, a special kids menu, a visit to the bridge to meet the captain and special crafts. There are special family departure dates when more children will be on board.

Travel Insurance

Protect your travel investment with insurance. Our partners at Travelex Insurance offer a variety of plans and policies to fit every trip and budget. Coverage for a pre-existing medical condition is also available if you purchase the Travel Select plan within 15 days of the initial trip payment; refer to plan details. Learn more about travel insurance or get a free quote.

Note that Galapagos Province requires foreign travelers to show proof of medical insurance coverage for entry. If you are traveling to the Galapagos Islands, confirm with your travel insurance provider that your policy contains medical coverage to meet this entry requirement.  Be certain to bring your insurance plan ID documents with you when you travel.

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. Due to the active nature of volcanoes in the Western Galapagos, alternate excursions may be offered. The ability to be flexible makes this type of small ship cruising unique.

Day 1
SUN - Embark Baltra to Darwin Research Station & Fausto Llerena Breeding Center (Santa Cruz)

Arrive in the Galapagos and be picked up at the Baltra Airport by your naturalist guide. Take a 10-minute bus drive to the pier to board the M/Y Coral I or M/Y Coral II. In the afternoon, visit the Charles Darwin Research Station & Fausto Llerena Breeding Center in Santa Cruz Island. Once home to the famous Lonesome George, the last tortoise of the Pinta race, the breeding and relocation center is named in honor of this long-time guardian. The center is set in the Galapagos National Park Service where various interpretative buildings are available to visit. The grounds, with large stands of native vegetation, are one of the better places to spot some of the seldom seen Darwin’s finches such as the woodpecker, cactus and vegetarian finches.

Day 2
MON - Mosquera Islet & North Seymour

This morning make a wet landing on the tiny, low-lying Mosquera Islet, which is covered in coral sand and set between North and South Seymour Islands. It is home to a group of sea lions that come to laze on the soft white sand. It is a good spot to observe shorebirds as well as herons, lava gulls and boobies. Snorkeling or diving here offers the chance to see sharks, rays and barracudas.

In the afternoon, visit the flat, uplifted island of North Seymour Island. Depending on the season, both magnificent and great frigatebird males may be seen courting the females by clicking, bill-clapping, shuddering and flapping their wings, all while showing off their grossly inflated, bright red, gular pouch. Blue-footed boobies display their unique feet while dancing for a prospective mate. Sea lions, swallow-tailed gulls, crashing surf and distant views of the Daphne Islands top off a great visit.

Day 3
TUE - Santa Fe & South Plaza

Wake up to a fabulous snorkel in the turquoise waters of the protected bay possibly alongside sea lions, turtles, reef sharks and spotted eagle rays. Land on a sandy beach abundant with sea lions. Walk past a forest of island-endemic giant opuntia cacti and search for another island endemic, the Santa Fe land iguana, paler than its cousins on other islands. Galapagos hawks and even endemic rice rats are also animals to look out for.

Spend the afternoon on South Plaza Islet, where sea lions, swallow-tailed gulls and land iguanas are present. The small island is covered with a carpet of a red succulent studded with opuntia cacti. At the cliff edge, watch birds fly past at eye level in the updraft. These include frigatebirds, flocks of Galapagos shearwaters and of particular note, flights of displaying red-billed tropicbirds. Back at sea level, encounter more land iguanas, some of which have hybridized with their resident marine cousins.

Day 4
WED - Kicker Rock, Cerro Colorado Tortoise Reserve & Depart San Cristobal

This morning, circumnavigate Kicker Rock from the comfort of the vessel. In the sea northeast of Puerto Baquerizo Moreno is this ancient and eroded volcanic tuff lava named Leon Dormido or Kicker Rock, formed by two rocks approximately 485 feet, named for its resemblance of a sleeping lion. It is home to many of the typical Galapagos sea animals, such as birds, sea lions, blue-footed and Nazca boobies and frigatebirds, with rare sightings of swallow-tailed gulls, tropic birds and pelicans.

In the afternoon, visit the highlands of San Cristobal and the Cerro Colorado Tortoise Reserve, or La Galapaguera, to witness the most iconic creature of the archipelago in its various life stages. The tortoises wander in a semi-natural habitat, which lends itself to good photographic opportunities. The aim of the reserve is to help restore populations of the threatened San Cristobal tortoise back into the wild. In town, there are shops to purchase local handicrafts and souvenirs. After the visit, be transferred to the airport for your return flight to the mainland.
