Galapagos Natural Life
First Class - Yachts Galapagos
ODYSSEY YACHT Itinerary "B"
Day 1 – Sunday
Arrival at Baltra Airpor & Dragon Hill (Santa Cruz)
After the arriving obligations, you will be brought from landing dock to the yacht.
Day 2 – Monday
Rabida & Chinese Hat
At Rabida you will find a striking red beach blocked by spectacular brick-reddish cliffs. Perfekt times to take some fotos are short after sunrise and short before sunset. Outside the mating season this remarkable red beach is occupied by a large bachelor colony of Galapagos sea lions that will welcome you. Outstanding attraction is the major breeding colony of brown pelicans, one of the best places in Galapagos to approach them.
Day 3 – Tuesday
Darwin Bay & Prince Philip's Steps (Genovesa)
This quiet site is Galapagos in miniature! The small-scaled area will surprise you again and again, walking along a coral sand beach, crossing barren lava formations and creeks, passing tidal pools, shrubs and further ahead following the top of some cliffs. Moreover an impressive wide range of animals, such as whimbrels, Galapagos sea lions, herons, frigatebirds, red-footed boobies or Darwin's finches, is waiting for you.
Day 4 – Wednesday
Bartolome & Sullivan Bay
Nothing is too much promised when the National Park authorities praise Bartolome as ‘flagship site of the Galapagos Islands’. Although tiny and lifeless at first sight, this young islet offers you some of the best panoramas and wildest landscapes in the entire archipelago. Surprisingly these warm equatorial waters with coral reefs are even one of the best places in the archipelago to encounter endangered Galapagos penguins!
Day 5 – Thursday
Highlands (Santa Cruz) & Transfer to Baltra Aiport
Because wild Galapagos giant tortoises don’t stop at official National Park boundaries, dozens of them also roam and even mate on the adjacent woodlands in the populated agricultural zone of Santa Cruz. Thanks to the semi-open pastures and scalesia-woodlands, and their concentration around muddy pools, these farmlands are best place for a quick visit. Armed with a rain poncho and (provided) rubber boots you will get good chances to approach wild Galapagos giant tortoises just within a few meters.
Assisted by the guide and some crew-members the inflatable 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.
