Day 1 - Arrival to Galapagos
You will board the yacht New Flamingo, after landing and paying the entrance fee to the Galapagos National Park (100 USD), which will become your home for the next 4 days. Your cruise starts with lunch and the first excursion to the Black Turtle Cave.
Day 2 – Bartolome Island, Santiago Island
You continue today to the Bartolome Island. It offers the possibility to climb to the summit, from where visitors can observe a variety of volcanic formations including lava bombs, spatter and cinder cones, lava flows and lava tubes. The moon like landscape provides one of the most scenic panoramas in the archipelago. And you also have the chance to relax on a beautiful beach, which offers great snorkelling opportunities. Multi –coloured fish and occasionally penguins and sea turtles are often here. After lunch a panga ride in Sullivan Bay is waiting for you. You will have plenty of time for observing birds and local lava creations.
Day 3 - Sombrero Chino, Puerto Egas
The third day you will admire the unbelievable beauty of the Santiago Island. Chinese Hat (Sombrero Chino) - is a tiny island just off the south-eastern tip of Santiago Island and is less than a quarter of 1 sq km in size. It is a recently-formed volcanic cone and its descriptive name accounts for the fact that it appears to take the shape of a downward-facing Chinese hat. Opposite Sombrero Chino, on the rocky shoreline, Galapagos penguins and eagle rays are often seen. The island is home to a large sea lion colony and plenty of marine iguanas who cover the volcanic landscape. Afterwards, the excursion to Puerto Egas with its black sand beaches leads to one of the most rewarding visits of the Galapagos. A hike inland to the salt crater is an excellent opportunity to see land birds such as finches, doves, and hawks. A walk along the rugged shoreline, especially at low tide, will allow us to observe many marine species as iguanas bask on the rocks and sea lions laze in the tide pools. At the end of the trail there is a series of grottoes or sea caves where fur seals and night herons are regularly found resting on the shady ledges. For many, this is the only opportunity to see the Galapagos fur seal, once thought to be on the verge of extinction.
Day 4 – Santa Cruz
We will take you to Santa Cruz inland to observe giant turtles. After a snack you will be taken to the airport for your return flight to Ecuador.
