Our 3-night eastern route first heads to the little-frequented Pitt Point, the easternmost point of the archipelago and the only site where blue-footed, red-footed and Nazca boobies gather together. It returns through extraordinary Santa Fe and the popular, really not to be missed highlight of South Plaza (both with land iguanas and giant cactus trees). Your visit to the Charles Darwin Research Station will be a nice introduction to this cruise, while it is concluded in the evergreen mangles of Black Turtle Cove on the north coast of Santa Cruz.

Islands Overview & Activities

Arrival at Baltra Airport and transfer in. You have to pay your Galapagos National Park entrance fee and your luggage will be inspected.
Arrival at Baltra Airport (SCY)
Charles Darwin Research Station
The most memorable part of the Charles Darwin Research Station will probably be the successful breeding centre and its celebrity ‘Lonesome George’.
Two wind sculptured tuff cones at Pitt Point constitute the easternmost end of the Galapagos and were the first sight of land of HMS Beagle with Darwin aboard.
Pitt Point (San Cristóbal)
Witch Hill (San Cristóbal)
Enjoy a leisurely afternoon in the lovely setting of Witch Hill’s crescent-shaped natural beach of soft powdery sand.
Santa Fé is another crown jewel of the Galapagos, where the pale Barrington land iguana and practically every other creature are unique to the Galapagos or this island alone.
Barrington Bay (Santa Fe)
Popular South Plaza is not to be missed! This bizarre ‘Jurassic islet’ is the best place to see the emblematic ‘Galapagos dragons’, which crawl across it.
This beautiful and tranquil bay is actually not a landing site, but is the ideal spot for a dinghy (panga) exploration..
Black Turtle Cove (Santa Cruz)
Transfer to Baltra airport
Assisted by the naturalist guide and some crew members the dinghy will bring you and your luggage to Baltra, where we take the airport shuttle. Your guide will accompany you until the check-in counters in the departure hall.
We expect that you will return home with stunning pictures and unforgettable memories for life!
