Day 1 - Giant Tortoise


Day 1 - In Search of the Giant Tortoise

Welcome to the Galapagos! An English-speaking naturalist guide meets you at the VIP lounge at Baltra Airport to escort you on your excursion of the highlands of Santa Cruz Island.  Enjoy a delicious, locally-sourced lunch at a farm in the western hills. Take in the area’s natural beauty, pit craters, lava tunnels, and learn more about the Scalesia and Guayabillo forests. At the Tortoise Reserve, share some time in the giant tortoises’ natural habitat, surrounded by the abundant bird life of the area. End this day at Galapagos Safari Camp with a sunset cocktail followed by dinner.

Days 2, 3 and 4 - Dive Days

Days 2, 3 & 4 - Dive Days

You will have the opportunity to dive twice daily. Possible dive sites include the following: 

Floreana Island

One of the older volcanic islands, Floreana, has an excellent selection of diverse dive sites. Most of the interesting activity takes place in the shallows where the current strikes the reefs. We have spotted Galapagos sharks, white tip reef sharks, turtles, sting rays, eagle rays, barracudas, sea lions, and reef fish.

Gordon Rocks

An eroded crater at the top of a tuff cone, Gordon Rocks is one of the best dive sites in the central islands. You might see hammerhead sharks, Galapagos sharks, white tip reef sharks, rays, green turtles, sea lions, Galapagos eels, barracudas, and reef fish.

North Seymour Island

Created by seismic uplift rather than volcanic origin, North Seymour is teeming with life. It is home to many species of shark, including Galapagos white tip and black tip, eagle rays, green turtles, Galapagos eels, barracudas, and more.

Cousins Rock

This is a triangular-shaped rock formation with a breath-taking vertical wall of black coral, invertebrates, and mollusks. It is a combination of shoal and wall diving, in the company of Pacific seahorses, frogfish, Galapagos sharks, white tip reef sharks, turtles, stingrays, spotted eagle rays, barracudas, sea lions, and reef fish.

Bartolomé Island

Despite being one of the younger islands, Bartolomé’s underwater world is stunning—with penguins as a highlight! There is a 10m-deep platform with an enormous variety of reef fish; and on the edge of the platform a 15m-deep submarine canyon, home to white tip reef sharks, mobula rays, stingrays, barracudas, turtles, and a variety of invertebrates and mollusks.

Mosquera Islet    

This rocky islet is a popular gathering place for sea lions and an enormous colony of garden eels. The 21m drop-off is ideal for schools of eagle rays, hammerhead sharks, manta rays, and black tip reef sharks.

Daphne Islet        

This is a drift dive along an impressive drop-off at the top of a sloping wall. Close to the islet you´ll discover  coral areas bursting with sea urchins, starfish, and a plethora of cardinal fishes. The area is frequently visited by manta rays, green turtles, sea lions, grunts and snappers, sharks, and eagle rays.
