Galapagos 8 Day Cruise Itinerary A (Archipel II) itinerary:

show reverse itinerary
Day 1 Arrival at San Cristóbal Airport (SCY) & Colorado Hill / tortoise breeding centre
Arrival at San Cristóbal Airport and transfer in. You will have to pay your Galapagos National Park entrance fee and your luggage will be inspected. One thing becomes clear on your visit to the Galapagos giant tortoise breeding centre on Colorado Hill: it’s hard work to save the last local giants of San Cristóbal.
Day 2 South Plaza & 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. Santa Fé is another crown jewel of the Galapagos, where the pale Barrington land iguana and practically every other creature are unique to the archipelago or this island alone.
Day 3 Chinese Hat & Dragon Hill (Santa Cruz)
Though recently born out of fire the volcanic islet Chinese Hat does not appear to be any more inhospitable than Bartolomé and lunatic Sullivan Bay. This tiny, rusty-coloured islet just begins to sprout. You arrive just in time to witness the next chapter about colonisation by pioneers! Thanks to the successful breeding programme, Dragon Hill is still populated by the largest wild population of Galapagos land iguanas on Santa Cruz.
Day 4 Charles Darwin Research Station & Highlands (Santa Cruz)
The most memorable part from the Charles Darwin Research Station will probably be the successful breeding centre and its celebrity ‘Lonesome George’. Santa Cruz offers excellent opportunities for viewing wild Galapagos giant tortoises, roaming through pastures in the agricultural zone and in the transition zone of adjacent El Chato Tortoise Reserve.
Day 5 Tintoreras Islet & Tortoise breeding centre & wetlands
This group of jagged rocky islets just off the coast of Puerto Villamil forms one of the most stereotypical sites of the Galapagos. The wetlands and brackish lagoons of Isabela are among the best places to spot aquatic, wading and shore birds.
Day 6 Moreno Point (Isabela) & Elizabeth Bay (Isabela)
Fresh, promising greens of pioneer vegetation contrast strongly with the dead, pitch-black lava flow that once reached the ocean at Moreno Point. At the remote Elizabeth Bay you will enjoy the best dinghy-ride of the Galapagos, which combines a visit to the Marielas Islets in the mouth of the bay, with the highest mangles in its innermost heart.
Day 7 Tagus Cove (Isabela) & Espinoza Point (Fernandina)
Tagus Cove is a historical anchorage at the northern entrance of Bolivar Channel (between Isabela and Fernandina). Westernmost Fernandina harbours one of the world’s most virgin, untouched ecosystems, and is another crown jewel of the Galapagos.
Day 8 Bachas Beach (Santa Cruz) & Transfer out to Seymour Ecological Airport (GPS)
Strolling along its coastline, the blinding white Bachas Beach appears full of natural life. It is one of most important breeding sites for Pacific green turtles. 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 to the check-in counters in the departure hall. You will return home with stunning pictures and unforgettable lifelong memories!
