ITINERARY

Upon arriving at Baltra Island, a guide will be awaiting your arrival to assist you to cross to Santa Cruz and visit the highlands. You will stop at the impressive Twin Craters known as “Los Gemelos”. Continuing on you explore lava tunnel remains and watch Giant tortoises roam the thick forest in their natural habitat. You will have lunch in the unique flora of the Galapagos while finches and warblers fly to and from.

Afterwards, arrive in Puerto Ayora at the Charles Darwin Research Station. It is one of the best park interpretation centers highlighting what it means to humanity and how vital it is to protect all Galapagos species and their conservation.
Activities: Walking tours

Diving into the waters of the Galapagos allows a rare opportunity to encounter an entirely new world. Below the surface is a motley of multi-colored tropical fish species, creating a natural kaleidoscope just waiting to be discovered. Since the Galapagos were created mostly from underwater volcanic activity, you’ll come upon strange and remarkable structures that sea creatures have now taken over and claimed as their marine home. Diving also allows you to witness some of the most magnificent and larger aquatic wildlife, such as Galapagos sharks, hammerhead sharks, manta and eagle rays and the phenomenal whale shark, the world’s largest fish in the ocean.
