Day by Day Overview

Your English speaking guide will be waiting for you at San Cristobal airport. If you arrive before 2 pm you will have lunch, if you arrive later, lunch is not included. This day will be self-guided. Optional activities: you can visit The San Cristobal Interpretation Center, where you will learn about the islands, evolution of their species, fauna, migration, and how humans came to live here. Then you can go to Playa Mann for your first contact with the stunning waters of these islands.

Accommodation in Hotel Casa Opuntia or similar

After breakfast, you go by boat to snorkel at Kicker Rock, one of the most spectacular landmarks in the Galapagos Islands. Two volcanic rocks of 140 meters tall, located off the coast of San Cristobal Island. Viewed from the south, the rocks look like a sleeping lion, which is why the Spanish name is León Dormido (sleeping lion). From another side it looks like a boot, hence the English name, Kicker Rock. This tiny island is the favorite place for an array of marine birds and great underwater life. The natural erosion of this ancient cone has created a channel between the rocks that provides the ideal habitat to a variety of sharks and rays. In the afternoon, you go back to the hotel.

Accommodation in Hotel Casa Opuntia or similar

You have the morning for yourself where you can visit Playa Mann, La Loberia or just to relax in your hotel. At 2 pm, you take the public speedboat to Puerto Ayora (about 2,5 hours). Upon arrival you will be taken to your hotel.

In the morning you will go to the Highlands of Santa Cruz to make closer contact with the giant Galapagos tortoises in their natural habitat. You will be surrounded all the excursion by the endemic vegetation of the Galapagos. Around 1:30 pm, you will take a public speedboat to Isabela Island, which takes approximately 2,5 hours. Upon arrival in Isabela, you will be taken to your beach front hotel. You can walk around or visit by yourself the Flamingo Lagoon (10 min walking). This place is the largest coastal lagoon found in the Galapagos and is one of the main reproductive sites for the majority of flamingos.

Accommodation in Hotel Albemarle or similar

After breakfast, your guide will take you to what is said to be one of the best snorkeling places in the world, Los Tuneles. The water is shallow, calm and very clear – a sea sanctuary. A series of lava flows have produced unique geological formations, a series of arcs and tunnels underneath and above the water- a habitat for many local Galapagos Species. The entrance to the site is shallow and the waves can be strong, for this reason, the access can be complicated. You will have a snack on board and then return to Puerto Villamil.

Accommodation in Hotel Albemarle or similar

After breakfast the guide will accompany you for a kayak excursion in the bay of Puerto Villamil. The afternoon you have time to enjoy the beautiful beach or to do another optional activity.
