Highlights

This adventure is perfect for those who want to experience the incredible wildlife and scenery of the Galápagos Islands but prefer to sleep on shore – so your time on the water is limited to commuting between islands. Go ashore at the lesser-visited island of Isabela and spend your days with playful sea lions, giant manta rays, and the Galápagos giant tortoise. This adventure offers a great balance of guided excursions and free time – and optional activities abound.

From this elevation, the panoramic views of the other islands are stunning. Included Activities: Santa Cruz Highlands Excursion Kayaking (Itabaca Canal) Snorkelling (Itabaca Canal)

After a free morning, depart Santa Cruz and head to Floreana Island. Keep an eye out for dolphins and the magnificent albatross along the way.

Hear tales about the pirates, whalers, seal hunters and bucaneers who once lived in this isolated and unique landscape. Additional Notes: Please note that travel between islands is done by speedboat.
