Isla Daphne
10/1/2017 5:00:00 PM
10/1/2017 6:00:00 PM

Consisting of two islands, Daphne Major and Daphne Minor, the Isla Daphne is part of the Galapagos Islands. Due to much erosion, Daphne Minor is the smaller of the two islands, though Daphne Major is not easily accessible either, with no more than twelve people allowed on the island at a time. Devoid of trees, the Isla also has a tuff crater, and is a major spot for scientific research due to its rich population of birds, particularly the Darwin finches.

Gardner Bay
10/2/2017 7:00:00 AM
10/2/2017 2:00:00 PM

Gardner Bay gives visitors the unique experience of mingling with the friendly sea lions that rest on the white sand beaches. Relax and sunbathe near the sea lions, or possibly explore and discover a green sea turtle nest, or observe giant manta rays or spotted eagle rays gliding gracefully through the clear shores. Visitors can enjoy snorkeling by Turtle Rock to view the vibrant marine life, or hike on land to check out the unique wildlife the Galapagos is known for.

Punta Suarez
10/2/2017 3:00:00 PM
10/2/2017 7:00:00 PM

Punta Suarez is an amazing sight and one of the most attractive in the Galapagos Islands, because of its plentiful and various wildlife. The island trail leads past sea lions surfing the breaking waves, iguanas basking in the warm sun, and boobies nesting right in the path. The trail continues towards the cliffs and the blowhole - a fissure in the lava from which water spurts high in the air like a geyser.

Cormorant Point
10/3/2017 7:00:00 AM
10/3/2017 1:00:00 PM

Named not after the bird but a US ship, there is a wet landing onto a, literally, green beach - so coloured because it is made from olivine crystals (volcanic silicates of magnesium and iron). Pencil sea urchins may be found on the beach.

A short walk inland and the trail comes to a brackish lagoon. This is home to one of the biggest populations of flamingos in the archipelago, these pink residents spend about 7 hours a day or more eating, and so take some binoculars to watch the ballet of necks as they gracefully move back and fourth, scouring the floor of the lagoon for little shrimp. Take your binoculars to enjoy the show up close. Also present are pintail ducks and stilts. The trail crosses a narrow neck of land and comes to a white beach on the eastern side of the island. Ghost crabs inhabit the beach, and rays and turtles can be seen in the sea.

Sea turtles nest at Punta Cormorant (December to May) on the white sand beach, just a short walk away from the olive coloured beach where you land.

Bahia de los Correos
10/3/2017 1:00:00 PM
10/3/2017 8:00:00 PM

Part of Floreana Island of the Galapagos Islands, Bahia de los Correos translates to Post Office Bay. It is one of the main tourist attractions, where visitors can view the many postal and handmade signs that garnish the site as structural art. Here, visitors can select and send post cards.

Urvina Bay
10/4/2017 2:00:00 PM
10/4/2017 7:00:00 PM

Urvina Bay on Isla Isabela is significant due to a recent geological event. In 1954 its coral reef was raised out of the ocean by 13 feet and can now be seen above the water. Iguanas, pelicans, flightless cormorants, rays and Galapagos Tortoises can be seen here. Isabela itself has an abundance of tortoises, animal, bird and marine life.

 

Punta Espinoza
10/5/2017 7:00:00 AM
10/5/2017 12:00:00 PM

Punta Espinoza is the visitor site on Isla Ferdinandina and is situated at the northeast coast of the island. The biggest colony of marine iguanas is situated here. Hundreds of them sunbathe on the rocks. Besides the iguanas, the island is home to flightless cormorants, Galápagos penguins and sea lions. Mangroves and cacti dominate the vegetation. There are also extraordinary lava formations.

Punta Vicente Roca
10/5/2017 2:00:00 PM
10/5/2017 7:00:00 PM

Located at the ‘mouth’ of the head of the sea horse, which forms the northern part of the Galapagos islands, is Punta Vicente Roca, Here the remnants of an ancient volcano form two turquoise coves with a bay well protected from the ocean swells.


The spot is a popular anchorage from which to take panga rides along the cliff that are the remains of the volcano or explore a partially sunken cave at the water’s edge. Masked and blue-footed boobies sit perched along the point and the sheer cliffs, while flightless cormorants inhabit the shoreline.


The upwelling of coldwater currents in this part of the Galapagos, give rise to an abundance of marine life which, in combination with the protection of the coves, make Punta Vicente Roca one of the archipelago’s sough after dive spots.


One cove is only accessible from the sea by way of an underwater passage. The passage opens to calm waters of the hidden cove where sea lions like to laze on the beach having traveled along the underwater route. The entire area of Punta Vicente Roca lies on the flank of 2,600 foot Volcano Ecuador.This is the Galapagos island’s sixth largest volcano. Half of Volcano Ecuador slid into the ocean leaving a spectacular cutaway view of the volcanic caldera.

The South Plaza is open to the public and cruise ships, however the Northern Plaza is closed to visitors and purposely only available for scientific findings.

10/7/2017 7:00:00 PM

Puerto Ayora is located on the southern end of Isla Santa Cruz. Puerto Ayora is a charming port town where sea, sun, seabirds and sailboats coexist. On the town's outskirts are the headquarters to the world-renowned Charles Darwin Research Station. Many travelers just pass through on the way to see Lonesome George (a 150-year old tortoise; the last of his species) at Darwin Station. Puerto Ayora is a lively seaside town offering international cuisine, oceanfront hotels, outdoor bars, scuba diving schools and an avenue of boutiques with everything from tie-dyed sarongs to Panama hats. Relish the Islands' crescent slices of sand, spectacular diving, mountain top vistas, and tropical climate. Visit select islands and choose from an array of outdoor activities, such as kayaking, scuba diving, snorkeling, horseback riding and mountain biking. Puerto Ayora provides the most convenient base for island hopping. Three boats, the Delphin, Esmeraldas III and Santa Fe, offer day trips to Florena, Bartoleme, North Seymore and Plazas.
