Itinerary

D1: Santa Cruz Island
Friday: Baltra and Mosquera Islet

AM-Baltra Island: You’ll arrive by plane to Baltra Island in the morning and then be transferred to the dock to board the Santa Cruz II Galapagos Cruise. After an introductory briefing onboard, passengers take part in an emergency boat drill, receive their cabin assignments, and enjoy a satisfying lunch.


Mosquera Islet: After lunch, the Santa Cruz II will sail and relocate just four nautical miles away from Baltra Island, right beside Mosquera Islet– a small piece of volcanic uplift that sits between the larger islands of Baltra and North Seymour. Mosquera Island is a long and narrow sandbank that’s surrounded by lava reefs. The excursion group will approach the island from its western shore, which consists of a long shallow reef and acts as the perfect nook for young sea lions. After a wet landing, naturalist guides will lead you past the sea lion colonies, where you will get the chance to learn more about the fragile marine and terrestrial ecosystems of the Galapagos Islands. The walk is easy here, as it only involves walking across a few hundred meters of flat and sandy dunes.
