About this trip

  

Discover an uninhabited island with your local experts, Islanders Galápagos! A 2-hour navigation takes you to a first activity: snorkeling in Islet Gardner. Admire the starfish on the seabed, a rainbow of fish, sea lions, sea turtles, rays and even Galapagos sharks! You will return aboard to taste a cup of organic coffee from our own farm while the crew prepares a delicious buffet lunch on board. Then, we’ll continue to the most anticipated place: disembark in Punta Suarez and enjoy a moderate hike to observe the largest endemic birds of the Galapagos: Waved Albatross (nesting season April to December). Nazca Booby birds, Galápagos pigeons, Galapagos hawks and colonies of marine iguanas also await you! We will navigate back to San Cristóbal in time for the sunset.
