Dragon Hill (Santa Cruz)

Dragon Hill (Santa Cruz) Sun 13 Jun 2021

Dragon Hill (Santa Cruz)

Dragon Hill, or "Cerro Dragon," is named after its population of land iguanas. The site offers a beautiful view of the landscape and two small brackish lagoons where flamingos and other shore birds occasionally feed. Along the trail, we'll cross a beautiful "white forest" of Palo Santo (incense) trees and Galapagos cotton plants. Excursion options include a high-intensity hike with swimming/snorkeling at the beach, high intensity snorkeling from a zodiac followed by a short walk and a low-intensity Zodiac ride along the coastline with optional dry landing for animal observation.

Post Office, Floreana, Ecuador

Cerro Brujo, San Cristobal

Cerro Brujo (San Cristobal) Wed 16 Jun 2021

Cerro Brujo, San Cristobal

Another stop on San Cristobal Island brings the opportunity to explore a fascinating geologic landscape, beach, and satellite volcanic cone. Zodiac rides along the shore bring you to a huge natural cutout that makes for a unique photo opportunity and then swings into a natural cathedral of towering rocks that is nothing less than astonishing. Along the way crabs and shorebirds dot the volcanic landscape. Afterwards, you are brought to a fine white sand beach for a short walk and/or swim amidst a colony of sea lions. A sunset circumnavigation around the spectacular eroded volcanic cone of Kicker Rock is the perfect way to end the day.

Kicker Rock (San Cristobal)

Kicker Rock (San Cristobal) Wed 16 Jun 2021

Kicker Rock (San Cristobal)

Off the northwest coast of San Cristobal lies Kicker Rock, where thousands of years ago a volcanic eruption left behind enormous vertical rock faces that rise nearly 500 feet from the ocean. There are actually two volcanic rocks here, with a channel between where small boats can navigate. Nicknamed Sleeping Lion because of its shape, Kicker Rock is an important ecological monument as it's home to many species of nesting birds including frigates and blue-footed boobies. It's also magnificent for snorkeling as tropical fish are abundant and the water is crystal clear.

Visit Puerto Ayora on a cruise to the Galapagos Islands

Puerto Ayora (Santa Cruz) Thu 17 Jun 2021

Visit Puerto Ayora on a cruise to the Galapagos Islands

Santa Cruz is the second-largest island in the Galapagos and home to Puerto Ayora (the largest town in the islands). In 1959, the Ecuadorian government declared all the islands, except areas already colonized, as a national park. In the same year, the Charles Darwin Foundation was founded to promote scientific research and ensure the conservation of the Galapagos. In 1992, the waters surrounding the Galapagos were declared a marine reserve. Here, you have the opportunity to visit a giant tortoise reserve in the lushly vegetated highlands, where the animals roam free in their natural habitat. On another excursion, a short drive through town brings you to the Galapagos Park Service giant tortoise breeding station and the Charles Darwin Research Station. Afterwards there is time to wander through the lovely streets of Puerto Ayora for some shopping.

Punta Suarez

Punta Suarez (Espanola) Fri 18 Jun 2021

Punta Suarez

One of Espanola’s and the islands true gems, Punta Suarez is where wildlife viewing is at its very best. A hike from the beach over boulders to the steep southern cliffs leads to a dramatic blowhole where water can gush up to 50 feet into the air. Along the way, you’ll pass through a sea lion colony (make sure you avoid stepping on colorful marine iguanas), and walk past an abundance of Nazca boobies nesting on the nearby rocks. Blue-footed boobies, Galapagos hawks, mockingbirds, finches, and red-billed tropic birds also make their home at this end of the island. From about May to December, Espanola hosts the only colony of Waved Albatross in the Galapagos. It’s a special treat to catch a courtship dance or watch the juveniles try to take off at the Albatross Airport.

Gardner Bay (Espanola)

Gardner Bay (Espanola) Fri 18 Jun 2021

Gardner Bay (Espanola)

Gardner Bay on Espanola’s northern side hosts one of the longest beaches in the Galapagos, and a beautiful way to start the day. During a morning walk along a soft white sand beach, you’ll visit a sea lion colony, look for pups playing in shallow water pools, and search for the startlingly red Sally Lightfoot crabs, shorebirds, and marine iguanas. Afterwards, go for a swim, snorkel or just relax on the sparkling white sand.
