Day 5
WED - Breeding Center, Lobos Island & Kicker Rock (San Cristobal)

In the morning, visit Lobos Island, named after the sea lions that rest and play on its rocky shores. It is also home to blue-footed boobies, great frigatebirds, brown pelicans, lava gulls, common noddies, yellow warblers and small and medium ground finches. First, visit Breeding Center David Rodriguez, La Galapaguera, reached in roughly one hour by road from Puerto Baquerizo Moreno. On the trees and shrubs surrounding the site, possibly see land birds like warblers, finches and mockingbirds. Giant tortoises live here wild but protected to ensure their survival by sealing them off from introduced predators like pigs and goats. After, consider snorkeling in the clear waters of the channel, at one of the best sites to swim with sea lions underwater.

In the afternoon, enjoy a dinghy ride around Kicker Rock, also known as the Sleeping Lion because of its resemblance, located off the coast of San Cristobal. The remains of a lava cone eroded by the sea and two vertical rocks rising 500 feet above the ocean form a small channel navigable only by small boats. This Galapagos Islands natural monument has become a favorite sight due to the many tropicbirds, frigatebirds and boobies that fill the surrounding skies.

Day 7
FRI - Post Office Bay, Cormorant Point & Champion Islet (Floreana)

Today, visit Floreana, an island known for its fabulous snorkeling sites, vibrantly pink flamingos and black sand beaches. Visit Post Office Bay where in the 18th century whalers passing through the islands placed a wooden barrel for use as an unofficial mailbox. The tradition continues today as visitors leave addressed postcards in the barrel and sort through left mail to deliver upon their return home.

In the afternoon, visit Champion Islet, named after the whaler Andrew Champion. This small island, located just off the shore of Floreana Island in the southern part of the Archipelago, is considered one of the most beautiful places in the Galapagos by snorkeling and diving fans, and it provides excellent opportunities for dolphin watching. Later explore Baroness Lookout on the northern part of the island, where you will enjoy a beautiful landscape and historic view. It was named after the supposed Austrian Baroness who was the subject of many mysterious disappearances and well-known stories of loathing by those on Floreana.

Head to Cormorant Point in the northern part of Floreana and land on a green-colored beach, composed of olivine crystals. Enjoy a hike to a salt-water lagoon that is home to flamingos and other sea birds. The trail continues to another beach known as Flour Beach because of the very fine white-sand particles it is made of, making it an important nesting site for turtles. Later, swim in Champion Islet, another incredible snorkeling site in the Galapagos Islands.

Day 8
SAT - Highlands, Twin Craters & Disembark Santa Cruz

In the morning visit the Santa Cruz Highlands and appreciate the different ecosystems where giant tortoises dwell and birds find sanctuary. Accessible by bus from Puerto Ayora, the highlands of Santa Cruz are a deep green which contrast beautifully with the dry, lower part of the islands. The predominant vegetation in the highlands are Scalesia trees which create a lush green forest. The lava tunnels, over half a mile long, are underground and walking through them is a unique, surreal experience. Also visit the Twin Craters located opposite to each other on both sides of the road leading from Puerto Ayora to Baltra. The name is only figurative; not real craters, these formations were created by the collapse of surface material in underground fissures and chambers. The view is breathtaking. After this final visit, be transferred to the Baltra airport in time for your flight back to the mainland.

After an easy hike, you will be rewarded with a unique treat: the only nesting site that hosts all species of Galapagos boobies. Photographers will be thrilled with this intimate and natural experience. The attractive volcanic tuff formations will have geologists and laymen alike imagining the forces of nature that possessed the earth to create this land.

In the afternoon, anchor near Witch Hill (Cerro Brujo) and explore one of the nicest white-sand beaches in the Galapagos. With a colony of sea lions and blue-footed boobies, this scenic place is bustling with life. Just beyond the beach is a lagoon, thriving with egrets and great blue herons. The turquoise water and abundant marine life make this site excellent for snorkeling.

WED - Breeding Center & Disembark San Cristobal

Breeding Center Jacinto Gordillo, or La Galapaguera, in Cerro Colorado is a new visitor site in the southeast part of San Cristobal Island and can now be reached in roughly one hour by road from Puerto Baquerizo Moreno. On the trees and shrubs surrounding the site, you may see land birds like warblers, finches and mockingbirds. Giant tortoises can be observed on the trails. They live there wild but in a protected area to ensure their survival by sealing them off from introduced predators like pigs and goats

Day 1
WED - Embark San Cristobal to Kicker Rock (San Cristobal)

In the morning, arrive to the San Cristobal airport, where you’re met by Cormorant’s guides and transferred to the catamaran. Take some time to settle into your cabin before lunch and a welcome briefing. In the afternoon enjoy a panga ride around Kicker Rock, known as the Sleeping Lion because of its resemblance, located off the coast of San Cristobal. The remains of a lava cone eroded by the sea and two vertical rocks rising 500 feet above the ocean form a small channel that is navigable by small boats. This Galapagos Islands natural monument has become a favorite sight for cruises due to the many tropicbirds, frigatebirds and boobies that fill the surrounding air. Beneath the sea the crystal waters offer a brilliant show of colorful tropical fish and invertebrates.

Day 2
THU - Suarez Point & Gardner Bay (Espanola)

In the morning, arrive at Suarez Point on Espanola Island where large waved albatrosses use the cliffs as a launching pad. Espanola Island is also densely populated with mockingbirds, blue-footed and Nazca boobies, Darwin finches, Galapagos doves, hawks, red and green marine iguanas and many sea lions. The famous attraction is the magnificent blowhole, spurting water high into the air, which presents wonderful photographic opportunities!

This afternoon, visit Gardner Bay on the eastern side of the island, the breeding site of nearly all of the world’s 12,000 pairs of waved albatrosses. Explore the ample white sandy beach with myriad sea lions and rocky shores that make this site a great place for diving and snorkeling.

Day 3
FRI - Post Office Bay, Cormorant Point & Champion Islet (Floreana)

Today, visit Floreana, an island known for its fabulous snorkeling sites, vibrantly pink flamingos and black sand beaches. Visit Post Office Bay where in the 18th century whalers passing through the islands placed a wooden barrel for use as an unofficial mailbox. The tradition continues today as visitors leave addressed postcards in the barrel and sort through left mail to deliver upon their return home.

In the afternoon, visit Champion Islet, named after the whaler Andrew Champion. This small island, located just off the shore of Floreana Island in the southern part of the Archipelago, is considered one of the most beautiful places in the Galapagos by snorkeling and diving fans, and it provides excellent opportunities for dolphin watching. Later explore Baroness Lookout on the northern part of the island, where you will enjoy a beautiful landscape and historic view. It was named after the supposed Austrian Baroness who was the subject of many mysterious disappearances and well-known stories of loathing by those on Floreana.

Head to Cormorant Point in the northern part of Floreana and land on a green-colored beach, composed of olivine crystals. Enjoy a hike to a salt-water lagoon that is home to flamingos and other sea birds. The trail continues to another beach known as Flour Beach because of the very fine white-sand particles it is made of, making it an important nesting site for turtles. Later, swim in Champion Islet, another incredible snorkeling site in the Galapagos Islands.

Day 4
SAT - Highlands, Twin Craters & Disembark Santa Cruz

In the morning visit the Santa Cruz Highlands and appreciate the different ecosystems where giant tortoises dwell and birds find sanctuary. Accessible by bus from Puerto Ayora, the highlands of Santa Cruz are a deep green which contrast beautifully with the dry, lower part of the islands. The predominant vegetation in the highlands are Scalesia trees which create a lush green forest. The lava tunnels, over half a mile long, are underground and walking through them is a unique, surreal experience. Also visit the Twin Craters located opposite to each other on both sides of the road leading from Puerto Ayora to Baltra. The name is only figurative; not real craters, these formations were created by the collapse of surface material in underground fissures and chambers. The view is breathtaking. After this final visit, be transferred to the Baltra airport in time for your flight back to the mainland.

"A Good Time"

Because of the somewhat rough open seas, we curtailed the long sail to the outermost island, had a good time and went into town for a half day, and went to a beach for swimming - were joined by seals. The kids loved that!
