Day 1:

After arriving at the airport you will be transferred to Santa Cruz Island via ferry. Before settling down at the Casa Natura you will be taken to the Giant Tortoise Reserve for an easy hike to observe Giant Tortoises in their natural habitat. Not your everyday activity, but certainly a great way to begin your holiday. 

Day 2:

On this day you will be taken by boat to Santa Cruz Island's bay. This tour will take about 3 hours and includes a lot of different sites - the main pier of Puerto Ayora and, Lobería, which is famous for its large seal colony and variety of colours of fish, as well as Punta Estrada, Sharks´Channel, Playa de Los Perros, and Grietas. On this visit, there is a chance of viewing a high number of different animal species such as - white tip Sharks, sea tortoises, marine iguanas, crabs, pelicans as well as some other marine birds. 

Afternoon at leisure or visit to Isabela Island.

Day 3:

Cabo Rosa is the destination planned for this day. You will be taken by boat to this small islet in the middle of the ocean and will be to see many natural wonders such as lava tunnels and lava bridges, under and over sea level. But that is not all, you might also encounter with blue footed boobies, sea lions, pelicans, and if you are really lucky, even Galapagos penguins. This island is also great for more adventurous activities such as swimming with sea lions, sea turtles, golden rays, trumpet fish, surgeon fish and if lucky with white tip sharks.

Day 4:

Have you ever heard of Las Tintoreras? This islet is only a short distance from Puerto Villamil and it will be the location to explore on this day. Here there are chances of you spotting a small colony of penguins resting side by side with blue-footed boobies, as well as the possibility of seeing a white tip colony of sharks can also be seen resting here in a lava canal. There will be also opportunities to snorkel or swim on the island. 

Day 5:

After breakfast, you will be transferred to the pier where you will be taking a boat for a shared daily tour.
