Galapagos Floreana Yacht Itinerary - Tourist Class- Sunday to Sunday



Galapagos Floreana Tourist Class full, detailed and day by day sample Itinerary

The following day by day Galapagos trip layout is based on the present 8 day itinerary of the Floreana yacht, it is the regular program we operate, it should be considered as sample itinerary because it is subject to change for various reasons.

Day 01 Sunday: Flight to Galapagos –Baltra Island – Bachas Beach

Flight from Quito or Guayaquil - Galapagos to Baltra Island where you will start your cruises aboard the Motor Yacht Floreana after a short drive to the harbour. The deserted, pictures beach Las Bachas at the northern shore of Santa Cruz invites you for a swim in the crystal-clear water or to relax in the sun. In the afternoon you will explore the surroundings of Bachas beach.

Day 02 Monday: North Seymour – Santa Fe Island

You will visit the Island Seymour North, which is most of all renown for its frigate birds and their intensive courting rituals. Other frigate birds and blue-footed boobies, as well as endemic black lizards also inhabit the island and sea lions inhabit its shores.
Santa Fe has one of the most beautiful coves of all the visitor sites in the archipelago. A peninsula where sea lions rest protects a turquoise lagoon with two small white sand beaches. A trail runs along side the coast and then crosses through an Opuntia Forest. These prickly pear cacti are the largest ones in Galapagos. The Santa Fe species of land iguanas are larger and have a paler yellow than on the other islands. After the hike you can swim or snorkel in the bay in company of sea lions.

Day 03 Tuesday: Española - Punta Suarez / Gardner Bay

Española is the southernmost island of the archipelago, and being so isolated, a high percentage of its fauna is endemic. Punta Suarez, on the western coast of the island, is one of the most popular and attractive places in Galapagos. Sea lions, the picturesque marine iguana, and blue footed and masked boobies nesting next to the trail are found there. This is also the only place in the world where the waved albatross nests. Along the cliffs there is spectacular view of a fantastic blowhole.
Gardner Bay has a beautiful white sand beach to be shared with sea lions and curious mocking birds.

Day 04 Wednesday: Floreana - Pto. Cormorant / Devil's crown / Post Office Bay

Floreana Island is perceived as one of the most exotic Islands of the archipelago. At Punta Cormorant you land on a green olivine sand beach. Following a 100 m long path you will soon reach a lagoon with flamingo's, white-checked pintail ducks and other shorebirds. The trail goes on to a white beach made of grinned coral, so it looks like flour. This is the green sea turtle's nesting place. North of Punta Cormorant and eroded volcano, Devil's Crown, is a snorkel's delight. To the west, Post Office Bay keeps the legendary post barrel that whalers used to send their mail.

Day 05 Thursday: Santa Cruz/Station Charles Darwin - Highlands

Santa Cruz is the second largest island in the Galapagos. The small town of Puerto Ayora is the economic centre of the archipelago, with the largest population of the 4 inhabited islands (approx 10.000). Santa Cruz is also the only island where six different zones of vegetation can be seen: Coastal, Arid, Transition, Scalesia, Miconia, and Pampa Zones. The Charles Darwin Research Station and the Galapagos National Park offices are based here. We will have an opportunity to visit some of the best scientists of their kind. Scientists, park rangers and park managers among others, who make huge efforts to preserve this Unesco World Heritage Site, conduct the conservation of the islands. The station is also a tortoise breeding and rearing centre, where tortoises of different subspecies are prepared for reintroduction to their natural habitats. The most popular inhabitant of this island will probably be Lonesome George. He is the only survivor of the specific turtle species.
The lush greenery of the Santa Cruz highlands is a welcome contrast with the arid scenery of the smaller, lower islands. Points of interest are the famed lava tunnels, a fun and geologically informative visit. The trip to the highlands ends with a visit to the Twin Craters. The vegetation around these is very special and is renown for its about 300 fern species and the many sunflowers.

Day 06 Friday: Santiago island / James Bay – Rábida

From the visitor centre at James Bay on the island Santiago a small path leads you in southern direction along the coast. Passing by the ruins of a former salt mine company and the many inhabitants of the bank area, like sea lions, lizards, herons, and sally-light foot crabs, you arrive at the famous fur seal grotto, the best place at Galápagos in order to observe these elegant animals. In the afternoon you'll do a trip to the beach of the small volcanic island Rábida. A small path leads to a small lagoon very popular with flamingos. On the way there you pass many pelicans nesting. The beach is also considered as one of the most beautiful snorkel places in Galápagos and also frequently visited by many sea lions due to its fish wealth.

Day 07 Saturday: Bartholome Island – Sullivan Bay

Arriving at Bartholome we will ascend a lookout point from where you can admire the spectacular panorama of the Sullivan Bay and the famous needle shaped rock, the so-called Pinnacle Rock. The beaches at the foot of the Pinnacle Rock boast some fine snorkelling spots from which you can discover the marvellous underwater world with a good chance to encounter penguins or the softly gliding turtles.
Later on you will anchor at Santiago Island's wonderful Sullivan Bay. At your arrival sea lions will stick their heads out of the water to welcome you and the season the turtles hatch the beaches are covered with little turtles. The main attraction of the bay is the broad, about 100 years old stream of lava and its bizarre surface.

Day 08 Sunday: Black turtle cove - Baltra - flight back to Quito

Today you visit the nearby Caleta Tortuga Negra (Black Turtle Cove). Mangroves surround this cove where you can see lava herons and pelicans. While snorkelling you can observe marine turtles, schools of golden mustard rays and sometimes also white-tipped sharks.
After that we will have a short stop at the harbour of Baltra (formerly known as south Seymour). You will cross the Itabaca Channel to Baltra, to take your flight back to the mainland.
