Upon your arrival to the Galapagos Islands, you will meet your driver at the airport exit and start your journey from the airport on Baltra Island to the town of Puerto Ayora on Santa Cruz Island.
First, you will take a bus from the airport to the Itabaca Channel that separates the two islands. You’ll then cross the channel by ferry. During this short transition from Baltra to Santa Cruz, you will have the chance to observe sea birds fishing. Your driver then takes you from the north coast of Santa Cruz Island to your hotel in the town of Puerto Ayora in the south. The drive takes approximately 45 minutes and leads through the island’s lush highlands. Your hotel is conveniently located at walking distance to the port, the main avenue, many restaurants, as well as the dive shop.
After lunch at a local restaurant, your guide will pick you up and you head to the Charles Darwin Station that is located a little outside of Puerto Ayora. Here, you will visit the interpretation center and the breeding center for giant tortoises. At the interpretation center, you’ll learn about the continuous work of the Galapagos National Park and its allies to protect the archipelago’s unique and fragile ecosystems and species. At the breeding center for giant tortoises, you can watch hatchlings and adult tortoises, and your guide will show you how to distinguish different tortoise species.
After this visit, your guide drops you at the dive shop, so you can try your diving gear, sign the release form and receive important information about tomorrow’s diving day trip. From the dive shop, it is a short walk back to your hotel.
