Day 01 Arrival at Baltra - Charles Darwin Station

Arrival at Baltra Airport
Upon arrival at Baltra Airport, you will first pass through an airport inspection point where your TCT (Transit Control Card) will be checked and stamped (please keep this carefully with your passport as you will need to show it again when you leave Galapagos).
At the arrival hall a naturalist guide will meet you and escort you on a short bus ride to the harbor at Baltra. By dinghy you will be taken to the yacht.

Charles Darwin Station, Santa Cruz IslandThe main visit in Puerto Ayora is to Charles Darwin Station. An excellent way to begin learning about the islands, their origin and formation. You will learn about how the Galapagos turtles are raised and meet Jorge, the famous solitary turtle. The Scientific Station has its own beach that receives many visitors on weekends.


Day 02 Floreana Island- Post Office Bay

Breakfast service. Visit to Floreana Island: Cormorant Point, Champion Islet, Baroness Viewpoint. Wet landing. Nature walk*. Possible activities: shallow water snorkeling, kayaking, panga boat exploration rides.
*The visit to Cormorant Point offers two contrasting beaches. Arriving on shore you will encounter a green sand beach (the green sand is caused by the olivine crystals derived silicates or magnesium and iron). From here you will follow the trail leading to a lagoon where Pink Flamingoes and other shore birds can be seen in the distance making their home. If you look closely at the mud of this lagoon, there appears to be 'cracks' in the mud. These cracks are not caused from dryness but are actual flamingo footpaths. This is also a good spot for seeing Large‐Billed Flycatchers, Small‐Ground Finches, Medium‐Ground Finches or Cactus Finches. The walk continues to another beach on the other side made of fine white sand particles known as "Flour Beach". In the waters Ghost Crabs and Rays can be seen swimming. Time and weather permitting you may even go for a swim or a snorkel. Other activities include a panga ride to Champion Point and kayaking at Baroness Viewpoint.
Afternoon: Lunch service. Panga boat ride to Post Office Bay*. Wet landing. Nature walk**. Snorkeling from the beach.
*In 1793 British whalers established the Post Office Barrel to send letters to and from England. This tradition has continued over the years, and even today visitors may drop off and pick up letters, without stamps, to be carried to far destinations. This is one of the few visitor sites that is visited for its human history. Whaling Captain James Colnett established the wooden post barrel in the early 1793. At the time whaling was a big industry, ships were typically gone for 2 years at a time. The Galapagos Islands were a frequent stop for these ships. Outbound ships would drop off letters after rounding the cape and the ships returning home would mail them. Over the years thousands of ships have stopped to send and receive mail at Post Office Bay. Many have posted a sign of driftwood or other materials memorializing their visit. This is the only area in the Galapagos were graffiti is still acceptable.
**Arriving at Post Office Bay you will land on a brown sand beach, passing the sea lions lying in the sun. At the post barrel the guide will pull a handful of letters for the group. Continuing the tradition, the letters are brought home with the traveler and then mailed to the addressee. Visitors also have the opportunity to send letters of their own. There are also the remains of a Norwegian Fishing Village a commercial fishing operation established in 1926 and abandoned a couple of years later. The group of Norwegians arrived with dreams of riches started a fishing and canning operation on $900 each. The tough Galapagos life and a few misfortunes had them abandon their dreams.
Time and weather permitting you may have the opportunity to snorkel again from the beach.
Evening: Guide briefing. Dinner service and navigation to Santiago Island.


Day 03 Santiago Chinese Hat- Bartolome Island

Breakfast service. Visit to Santiago Island. Wet landing at Chinese Hat. Nature walk*.
Deep water snorkeling.
* Visit to Chinese Hat, a tiny island just off the southeast tip of Santiago. Its name describes the
island's shape. Those visitors who travel to the island will find its special landscape worth the visit.
Though centrally located it is one of the least visited sites in the area. National Park Service
restrictions have limited the number of visitors to Chinese Hat. Multi‐day cruises with 14 passengers
or less are the only ones permitted at this site. The landing is on a beautiful crescent‐shaped white
sand beach, home to Sea Lions and Sally Lightfoot Crabs. The trail on Sombrero Chino's explores its
volcanic origin, one of the most evident in the islands.
The lava rock is very fragile and tends to break off when people walk over it. The sharp outcroppings
caused from these breaks make it necessary to wear good walking shoes. Patches of Pahoehoe
Lava, cracked lava and lava tubes can be found on the island. While the path does not lead up the
striking red rust sides of the Chinese Hat to the caldera, it does venture high enough on the island to
offer some spectacular views of the waves crashing below. Snorkeling in the waters near Chinese
Hat can create a stir; white‐tipped sharks frequent the area, as do the playful Galapagos Penguins
and Sea Lions.
Afternoon: Lunch service. Deep water snorkeling. Visit to Bartolome. Dry landing. Nature walk*.
*This desolate island with few plants is the most visited and most photographed island in the
Galapagos. The island consists of an extinct volcano and a variety of red, orange, green, and
glistening black volcanic formations. The best known of the island's features is the Tuff Cone known
as Pinnacle Rock. This large black partially eroded lava formation was created when magma expelled
from the volcano reached the sea. When the seawaters cooled the hot lava it caused an explosion.
The exploded particles eventually fasten together forming a rock composed of thin layers. Bartolome's
Pinnacle Rock has become one of the best recognized and most photographed sights in the islands.
A prominent sight it was used as a target for US airmen during WWII. Lying beside the Pinnacle Rock
are twin half-moon shaped beaches.
The northern beach is a popular snorkeling site where visitors have the opportunity to swim with
fish, Sea Lions and Galapagos Penguins. Much larger animals can be found near the southern beach
including stingrays, spotted eagle rays, white‐tipped sharks, and black‐tipped sharks. Little vegetation
grows in this barren place. Mangroves border the beach and the small shrub Tiguilia grows in the
volcanic sands. The seeds and tiny white flowers of the Chamaesycae provide food for the island's
finch. These plants are common to arid regions and are able to survive in these harsh volcanic
conditions.
Evening: Guide briefing. Farewell cocktail. Dinner service and navigation to Santa Cruz Island.


Day 04 Santa Cruz

Panga boat ride to Black Turtle Cove*. Breakfast service. Check out and airport
departure at 8 AM.
*In the morning, a panga boat ride to Caleta Tortuga, also known as Black Turtle Cove. There is nolanding at this sight. It is located on the north side of Santa Cruz Island and the way to reach it is bya panga boat (motorized canoe). You will be able to see its mangrove swamp where marine turtles are nesting during certain seasons of the year, as well as sharks and rays.

Transfer to Baltra airport for your flight back to Guayaquil or Quito.
