Breakfast
Today, we will fly from Quito to Baltra in the morning. Upon arrival, will transfer to ship. Baltra Island, also known as South Seymour, is truly the entrance to the Galapagos Islands.

Daphne Major
A small volcanic island - North of Santa Cruz Daphne Major. Devoid of larger trees, the rim of the volcano’s cone rises to 120 meters. Cactus bushes, small trees and herbs provide food for several finch species and a ground breaking study in evolution over a forty year time span showed how food resource availability has led to evolutionary changes in finches. Apart from these small land birds, Red billed Tropicbirds, Magnificent Frigatebirds and Nazca and Blue footed Boobies also nest on Daphne Major and can often be seen soaring.
Darwin Bay
At Genovesa Island the ship tucks into Darwin Bay, an ancient volcanic crater now flooded by the sea. Island the ship tucks into Darwin Bay, an ancient volcanic crater now flooded by the sea. Zodiacs land on a picturesque sandy beach where Galapagos sea lions often rest on the fine, white sand. Explorations along the shore may reveal marine iguanas looking like prehistoric dinosaurs in miniature. 

Prince Philip’s Steps
A small trail wanders past Red footed Boobies, perching frigate birds, Nazca Boobies, Galapagos Mockingbirds, and Galapagos finches. The highlight however, is arriving on the windward side of the island to see hundreds of Wedge Rumped Storm Petrels flying around in a frenzy of activity above the lava field where they nest.
North Seymour 
The landing at North Seymour Island is onto black lava rock. After a short climb, arrive at the island’s flat plateau where a number of sea lions nurse pups and frigatebirds nest. The island is dry, and so the predominant tree is the prickly pear cactus favored by the yellow Conolophus land iguanas that live here in number.

Santiago (Sillivan)
The lava fields of Sullivan Bay on Santiago Island will inevitably remind visitors of the surface of the moon. As brilliant red Sally Lightfoot crabs scuttle along the black volcanic shores, learn about the formation of the islands through geological forces from your guides.
Rabida
Received accolades for being one of the most exotic spots is Rabida island. Common Cactus Finches feed on the yellow flowers while Darwin finches and lava lizards skitter across the path in search of food.

Santa Cruz (El Eden)
Eden is a small, eroded tuff cone from an ancient volcano, and is an excellent example of the unique geology of the Galápagos. The shallow waters around the island are ideal for spotting Pacific green sea turtles, reef sharks, eagle rays, sea lions, marine iguanas and Sally Lightfoot crabs.
San Cristobal (Galapaguera) 
Giant tortoises are emblematic of the Galapagos Islands. The Silver Galapagos anchors off San Cristobal Island and
Zodiacs take all ashore to the pretty little town of Puerto Baquerizo Moreno. From here we set out by bus for the
Galapaguera Cerro Colorado Tortoise Reserve in the highlands of the island.

Punta Pitt (San Cristobal)

Walk along a path that runs through black basalt lava rocks or beachcomb at the landing beach looking for sea urchin
skeletons and attractive blue gray lichen grows on the rocks.
Gardner Bay 
The blue water here is spectacular, a;;owing clear infinity and thanks to this water clarity snorkelers often spot reef sharks patrolling the reef wall, cruising Pacific green turtles, and playful Galapagos sea lions.

Punta Suarez (Espanola Island)
Punta Suárez lies at the western point of Española, the oldest island in the Galápagos. Sheer cliffs provide superb thermals for seabirds and you may spot Swallow tailed Gulls, Nazca Boobies and Blue footed Boobies on the breeze. The largest seabird to nest in the Galapagos Islands is the Waved Albatross.
Fausto Llerena Breeding Center, Puerto Ayora (Santa Cruz)
Charles Darwin Research Station which houses the Fausto Llerena Breeding Center for giant tortoises and land iguanas guides will interpret the center’s captive breeding and reintroduction programs and thereafter enjoy free time in town.

South Plaza 
South Plaza is one of the smallest of the Galapagos Islands. Formed by geological uplift and tilted downward on the northern side, the southern cliffs have a height of up to 23 meters. At the landing site on the northern side sea lions are often seen, but it is the flora and land iguanas that are special. Land iguanas are often seen next to the prickly pear cacti ,as the plant gives shade and the pads are eaten by the iguanas.
Disembark and fly from San Cristobal to Guayaquil, transfer from airport to hotel.
Breakfast
Free at leisure and transfer to the airport for your flight home.
