Our 5-day itinerary combines the incredible shark canal off the coast of Isabela with the best flamingo lagoons of the Galapagos, and spectacular snorkelling around Devil’s Crown. The albatross and booby colonies and marine iguanas on Española promise to be the
next highlight! Most elder islands of the south-eastern Galapagos have azure bays and striking beaches of white coral sand, which are a favourite place for large colonies of sea lions. The visit to the Charles Darwin Research Station will be a nice conclusion to your cruise.
