Your driver will be waiting for you in the arrival hall at Baltra airport, and once you meet him your Galapagos adventure will start. You’ll take the shuttle from the airport to Itabaca Channel that separates the islands Baltra and Santa Cruz. Keep your eyes open on the way as you might already spot some Darwin finches. Next you will board a ferry that will take you from Baltra Island to Santa Cruz Island. During the crossing, which only takes a few minutes, you might already have the opportunity to observe sea lions, marine iguanas and different sea bird species. You will then be driven from the northern coast to the southern coast of Santa Cruz Island, where the largest Galapagos town, Puerto Ayora, is located. The drive takes approximately 45 minutes. Your driver drops you at your hotel, which is conveniently located in the heart of Puerto Ayora, close to the main avenue, many restaurants and the pier.
After lunch, you will 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 with your guide. 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 you will be dropped off back at your hotel in Puerto Ayora.
