What you can expect

Itinerary

Day 1: Transfer in – San Cristobal

Stop At: San Cristobal, Ecuador
At the arrivals area of San Cristobal airport, your driver will be waiting to get you to your hotel located in the village of Puerto Baquerizo Moreno. The drive will take about 5 minutes.
Duration: 30 minutes

No meals included on this day.
Accommodation included: Golden Bay or similar

Day 2: Kicker Rock

Stop At: Kicker Rock, Puerto Baquerizo Moreno Ecuador
After breakfast, you go by boat to snorkel at Kicker Rock, one of the most spectacular landmarks in the Galapagos Islands. It is composed of two volcanic rocks of 140 metres 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 favourite 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.
Duration: 8 hours

Meals included:
• Breakfast
• Lunch
Accommodation included: Golden Bay or similar

Day 3: Isabela Island – Kayak in Puerto Villamil

Stop At: Puerto Villamil, Puerto Villamil, Isabela, Galapagos Islands
Early in the morning, you will be picked up at your hotel and dropped off at the airport of San Cristobal (about 5 minutes driving). You then will take a small aeroplane to Isabela Island. This flight will take about 45 minutes. After arriving, you will be picked up at the airport, and brought to your hotel in Puerto Villamil. This drive takes about 7 minutes. After breakfast, the guide will accompany you for a kayak excursion in the bay of Puerto Villamil. You might see nice fish, penguins, and even sharks during this activity.
Duration: 6 hours

Meals included:
• Breakfast
Accommodation included: Scalesia Lodge or similar

Day 4: Los Tuneles

Stop At: Los Tuneles, Puerto Villamil 200250 Ecuador
After breakfast, your guide will take you to what is said to be one of the best snorkelling places in the world, Los Tuneles. The water is shallow, calm, and very clear- a sea sanctuary. Lava flows have produced unique geological formations: a series of arcs and tunnels underneath and above the water which make an ideal 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.
Duration: 8 hours

Meals included:
• Breakfast
Accommodation included: Scalesia Lodge or similar

Day 5: Puerto Ayora – Santa Cruz highlands

Pass By: Puerto Ayora, Puerto Ayora, Santa Cruz, Galapagos Islands

Stop At: Rancho Primicias, El Chato Area, 200350 Ecuador
Later in the day, you will visit the Highlands of Santa Cruz to make closer contact with the giant Galapagos tortoises in their natural habitat. You will find yourself surrounded by the endemic vegetation of the Galapagos. You will have lunch here.
