GALAPAGOS ODYSSEY Motor Yacht full, detailed and day by day itinerary

DAY 1:

Island Santa Cruz - Bachas Beach

In the morning you will fly to the Galapágos Island Baltra. After paying the National Park Entrance Fee, a crew meWELCOMETOGALAPAGOSr will accompany you to your yacht. Afterwards you will start with your first excursion to the long sandy “Las Bachas” Beach. Here you encounter sea lions, herons and marine iguanas and with good luck penguins.

DAY 2:

Island Bartolome / Island Santiago – Sullivan Bay

Arriving at Bartolomé in the morning you 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 snorkeling spots from which you can discover the marvelous underwater world with a good chance to encounter penguins or the softly gliding turtles. Later you will land at Santiago Island, also known as James, or San Salvador Island, which is the fourth largest island in the archipelago. The influences of the former salt mine workers and their imported animals are still alive on the island. The last tries to populate Santiago Island were given up forty years ago. The Sullivan Bay is located on the east coast of Santiago Island. Its lava field with lava cacti is a variety of interesting patterns. After exploring the lava flow, you can swim or snorkel with playful sea lions off two small coralline. B/L/D

DAY 3:

Island Isabela – Sierra Negra - Tintoreras

This day will lead you to the largest island of the archipelago, Island Isabela. With a surface of 4588 the isle engages more than the half of the land area of whole Galápagos. You start hiking up the volcano Sierra Negra until the edge of the crater. The volcano with its height of around 1200m and an outer diameter of ca. 9 kilometer is the second biggest lava dome of the world. You take a walk along the crater and move on to visit volcano Chico from where you can enjoy an outstanding view over Bahia Elizabeth and Alcedo, Darwin and Wolf Island. In the afternoon you will have a short boat trip through the harbor bay of Isabela. After passing sea lions and pelicans, which take a relaxing sun bath on the fishing boats there, you will reach the small island of “Tintoreras”. There you will take an easy walk through the bizarre landscape of lava with its huge colonies of sea lizards. Also a colony of sea lions is local here and often you can observe white tip sharks, resting in the flat water near the shore. B/L/D

DAY 4:

Island Santa Cruz – Highlands - Charles Darwin Station

Today you anchor at the harbour of Puerto Ayora on Island Santa Cruz. Beside its rank as homestay for sea lions and pelicans, the marina is a popular starting point for round-the-world-yachtsman. The island itself has come to be both touristic and scientific center of the archipeleago. In the morning you will visit the highlands of Santa Cruz. The lush landscape there is a welcome contrast to the arid scenery of the smaller, lower islands. On your way you will cross the different zones of vegetation, from the dry lower region full of cactuses to the woods of scalesia in the highlands. The Charles Darwin Research Station will be visited in the afternoon. The station encompasses an information centre, a museum, a library and a tortoise breeding station. Here you will have an opportunity to visit some of the best scientists of the Galápagos. Park rangers and park managers among others, who make huge efforts to preserve this Unesco World Heritage Site, conduct the conservation of the islands. In the tortoise breeding and rearing centre you can encounter tortoises of different subspecies, which are prepared for reintroduction to their natural habitats. The most popular inhabitant of this Station is probably Lonesome George. He is the only survivor of his specific turtle species. In the past all approaches to find a partner for him failed. But in July 2008 the scientists found a carved nest wit nine eggs from a female tortoise. Three of them could be saved and now accordingly to strict instructions they are incubated syntheticly.

DAY 5:

Island San Cristobal – Leon Dormido – Interpretation Center - Loberia

After a delicious breakfast you will follow the route of Charles Darwin. You will sail around the massive tuff-rock called Leon Dormido or Kicker Rock, which is a nesting site for a lot of sea birds. Because of its steepness you cannot find a landing stage but brave snorkelers can watch out for sharks and rays. At the port of Baquerizo Moreno, which is the capital of the province Galápagos, you will visit the Interpretation Center. The center will give you a good impression of the history of the Galápagos Islands. After a short walk in the afteroon you will arrive at a small white beach, called La Lobería. On its shore you cannot only encounter a lot of sea birds, so for example the frigate or blue footed booby, but also the local sea lion colonies and marine iguanas. The beach is a perfect place for fascinating landscape pictures because of the unusual colour of the plants near the beach. B/L/D

DAY 6:

Española Island – Gardener Bay - Suarez Point

Española is the southernmost and oldest island of the Galápagos archipelago. Because of its isolated position you can explore a lot of endemic wildlife. Gardener Bay is on the eastern shore with turquoise shot coloured water and a magnificent beach. Around the small islets nearby, snorkelers will find lots of fish and sometimes turtles and sharks. The bay is also frequented by a transient colony of sea lions which like to swim with you. Birds, like the endemic Hood-Mockingbird and different species of Darwin finches, are omnipresent. In the afternoon you will have an excursion to Point Suarez which is one of the most outstanding wildlife areas of the archipelago, with a long list of species found along its cliffs and sand or pebble beaches. In addition to five species of nesting seabirds there are the curious and bold Española Island mockingbirds, Galapagos doves and Galapagos hawks. Several types of reptiles, including the marine iguana and the oversized lava lizard, are unique to this island. When heavy swells are running, Point Suarez is also the site of a spectacular blowhole, with thundering spray shooting 30 yards into the air. The walkabout on a stony path is about 2km (duration about 3 hours). B/L/D

DAY 7:

Island Floreana – Cormorant Point – Post Office Bay

Floreana Island is perceived as one of the most exotic Island of the archipelago.
At Cormorant Point you land on a green olivine sand beach. Following a 100 m long path you will soon reach a lagoon with flamingoes, white-checked pintail ducks and other shorebirds. Afterwards you will visit the famous Post Office Bay which keeps the legendary post barrel that whalers historically used to post their mail in. Nowadays you can leave a letter and hope that it will make its destination via another tourist. B/L/D

DAY 8:

Island North Seymour / return flight Island

After a dry landing, you will have a short walk along the coast of the northernmost island of Seymour. Guests will encounter swallow tailed gulls, sea lions and cliff crabs. This site is also known for being a major nesting colony of blue footed boobies, and the largest colony of the magnificent frigate bird, a species different to the great frigate bird. You can also spot both endemic species of iguanas, the marine iguanas and land iguanas. You will enjoy this relaxing hike around the nesting sites. Afterwards you will be escorted to the airport of Baltra island and from there you will fly back to Ecuador mainland. Enjoy the last view back to the enchanting islands; a unique paradise with its fascinating nature. B
