Isla Baltra
11/24/2018
11/24/2018 3:00:00 PM

Today Baltra is the most important airport of Galápagos and a small navy base for Ecuador. Baltra has suffered most from human settling and does not have any visitor sites. Many cruises start from the its harbour and already there pelicans and noddies will welcome you.
To the north lies Mosquera, a small sandy bank with a large colony of sea lions. Go swimming and snorkeling on the beach.

North Seymour
11/24/2018 3:00:00 PM
11/24/2018 6:00:00 PM

Located off the northern tip of Baltra, this island is home to the largest colony of frigate birds in the Galapagos, as well as blue-footed boobies and playful sea lions.

South Plaza
11/25/2018 7:00:00 AM
11/25/2018 11:00:00 AM

South Plaza is an Island located off the east coast of Santa Cruz, belonging to the Galapagos. It is home to a vast amount of species and beautiful flora. 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. The South Plaza was formed by Lava and depending on the season the Sesuvium ground vegetation changes colors from orange to purple and intense shades of green.

Isla Santa Fe
11/25/2018 3:00:00 PM
11/25/2018 6:00:00 PM

Considered one of the most scenic coves in the Galapagos, Isla Santa Fe, also known as Barrington Island, contains the only population of the rare Santa Fe Land Iguana. These unique iguanas can be found in the prickly pear cactus forest, where cacti can grow up to ten meters. Along the loop trail hike, visitors can check out spectacular views of the cove and bay.

Cerro Brujo
11/26/2018 3:00:00 PM
11/26/2018 6:00:00 PM

Cerro Brujo, or “Wizard Hill”, is located on San Cristobal in the Galapagos Islands. Home to the only freshwater lake in the Galapagos, Cerro Brujo is provides a perfect environment to bird watch. Among the birds to be seen on the island are yellow warblers, ground finch, oyster catchers, lava herons and the diving blue footed boobies. Wandering along the beach, be careful not to accidentally step on a sea lion – they’re all over the island. The lagoons are perfect to take a quick dip or a snorkel and explore the undersea of the Galapagos. Kicker Rock is viewable from the shoreline, a picturesque tall rock formation split down the middle that is rife with seabirds.

Post Office, Galapagos
11/27/2018 7:00:00 AM
11/27/2018 11:00:00 AM

The Post Office Box on Post Office Bay was used in old days by whalers and others to stay in touch with their loved ones at home. Leaving the letters behind in the wooden barrel, other sailors returning home took it with them. Today tourists take the tradition over and leave post cards behind to be picked up later by others. A large lava tube is located behind the barrel. Visitors can enter the lava tunnels by stairs. The coastal vegetation is a dry tropical forest with low growing trees and shrubs. Frigate birds become frenzied when fisherman or cooks clean fish and throw away the scraps. Watch them playfully throw up the pieces and have aerial acrobatic frigates snatch them from the air. When free meals are not available frigates harass other sea birds in the air to drop their catch. Rays are seen around boats floating close to the water surface. The beautiful sunsets on the equator are fast and should not be missed.

Cormorant Point
11/27/2018 3:00:00 PM
11/27/2018 6:00:00 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.

Elizabeth Bay
11/28/2018 7:00:00 AM
11/28/2018 11:00:00 AM

This side of Isla Isabella is a paradise for sea turtles. Endemic Flightless Cormorants and the marvelous Galapagos Penguins are in their prime habitat here. Nowhere else in the world do they find themselves more at home.

Gardner Bay
11/30/2018 7:00:00 AM
11/30/2018

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
11/30/2018
11/30/2018 6:00:00 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.

Isla Mosquera
12/1/2018 6:00:00 AM
12/1/2018 7:00:00 AM

A channel island between the the islands of Baltra and Seymour, Isla Mosquera is a very flat stretch of white sand with tide pools and rocks. Underwater marine activity is ideal for snorkelers. Adventurers can observe the habitat of Brown Pelicans, Boobies, and playful sea lions.
