Day 1 - WED - Darwin Research Station & Highlands (Santa Cruz)

Arrive to the Galapagos Islands on Baltra Island and embark the Eclipse for Santa Cruz Island. Enjoy lunch onboard, then travel by bus here to the lush, green highlands of Santa Cruz. Visit a tortoise reserve and search for giant tortoises in their natural surroundings. The opportunity to walk through lava tunnels also exists, so take a flashlight if you have one. Later this afternoon, enjoy your time freely exploring the town of Puerto Ayora before dinner on board.
ACCOMMODATIONS:
Eclipse
MEALS:
lunch and dinner

Day 2 - THR - El Barranco & Darwin Bay (Genovesa)

Genovesa, or Tower Island, is the northernmost island that is allowed to be visited by naturalist (non-diving) cruises. This island is extremely remote and home to literally millions of birds belonging to many different species including the red footed booby as well as frigates, swallow-tailed gulls and even endemic owls! There are two sites on Genovesa that are visited by the M/V Eclipse. El Barranco, also known as Prince Phillip’s Steps, consists of a steep path with stairs carved into the rock leading to a plateau full of bird life among a Palo Santo forest. Watch Nazca boobies, Galapagos doves, mockingbirds and petrels. With some luck, you may spot a short-eared lava owl.

After lunch, explore Darwin Bay’s soft, coralline white sand. A trail from the beach takes you into lush mangroves where red-footed boobies nest. Other locals include sea lions, swallow-tail gulls, frigates and more. Snorkeling is a must here as sharks, colorful reef fish, rays and tortoises are common.
ACCOMMODATIONS:
Eclipse
MEALS:
breakfast, lunch and dinner

Day 3 - FRI - Bartolome Island & Cerro Dragon (Santa Cruz)

Bartolome is a small island that has two visitor sites. At the first site, you can snorkel around Pinnacle Rock, where penguins are usually seen. Then, it’s back on board for a quick change of clothes followed by a short dinghy ride to a dry landing for a climb to the highest point on the island. On the way up, you will encounter different volcanic formations, including spatter and tuff cones, lava flow and lava tubes. From the summit, take in the wonderful view of Sullivan Bay. For those not interested in the hike, there is the option of a panga ride. Usual fauna and flora also includes sea lions, pioneer plants, reef sharks, rays and colorful reef fish.

Later visit Cerro Dragon (Dragon Hill), whose name stems from the fact that it was one of the few sites on Santa Cruz Island where a healthy population of land iguanas were found in 1975. After landing at a pier, a hike takes to you to a salt water lagoon behind the beach, frequented by common stilts, pintail ducks and occasionally flamingos. A short walk up the hill leads you to a land iguana nesting site, with breathtaking views of the bay. You will have the chance to go swimming after the walk. Return to the ship for a farewell cocktail and dinner.
ACCOMMODATIONS:
Eclipse
MEALS:
breakfast, lunch and dinner

Day 4 - SAT - Bachas Beach (Santa Cruz) & Disembark Baltra

This morning you have one more excursion to Las Bachas Beach, located in the north of Santa Cruz Island. Its soft, white sand is derived from decomposed coral, making it a favorite nesting site for sea turtles. Behind the beach there is a small brackish lagoon, where it is possible to observe flamingos and other coastal birds, such as black-necked stilts and whimbrels. After this early-morning excursion enjoy breakfast, a Galapagos documentary and snacks as you sail into Baltra Island to transfer to the airport for your flight back to the Ecuador 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, kayak and snorkel; no previous experience required. 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), kayaks and shortie wet suits are provided on the Eclipse. According to National Park regulations, kayaking is only permitted at certain sites with a maximum number of 8 passengers in 4 double kayaks.
