Daily Tours

North Seymour & Bachas Beach

North Seymour is quite barren and rocky with variable vegetation. One of the few places where we can enter and visit the colony of frigate birds (Fregata minor), the famous blue-footed boobies (Sula nebouxii), they are seen incubating eggs or feeding their chicks, we can also find land iguanas (Conolophus subcristatus) Darwin finches, Galapagos doves, lava herons, sally light foot crabs (Grapsus grapsus) and playful sea lion pups on the banks.

 

Bachas beach, this site got its name during world war II where the American air base had its barges, now there are almost no traces of that and what we have is a beautiful white sand beach where we can some times see flamingoes,  its also a nesting site for the green sea turtle and of course a great place for swimming and snorkeling.

Plaza Sur & Punta Carrión

South Plaza is a small island of 13 hectares, located at the east of Santa Cruz. Its twin, North Plaza is reserved only for scientific studies. The channel between the two islands is the home of the largest colonies of sea lions in the archipelago. There is an important colony of land iguanas (Conolophus subcristatus). From the cliff of the island you can see one of the most colorful birds of the archipelago such as the tropical bird (Phaeton aethereus), the forked-tailed gull (Creagrus durcatus) and flocks of Galapagos shearwaters (Puffinus subalaris).

 

Punta Carrion is a wonderful place for snorkeling, we will provide you with snorkeling gear and towels, here we can see a variety of fish, rays sea lions and maybe white tip reef sharks.

Bartolomé y Bahia Sullivan

Bartolome is a small Galapagos Island located 18 miles northwest from the Itabaca Channel. It’s among the most famous of all the islands, due to its fascinating volcanic landscapes and the wildlife encounters it promises. Bartolome is considered one of the best snorkeling sites in the central islands of the archipelago. Here, we swim at the foot of the famous Pinnacle Rock and around its base, observing many species of parrot fish, marine turtles, sea lions and, if we’re lucky, Galapagos penguins.

 

Sullivan Bay is located at the southeast of Santiago Island, where we can swim or snorkel. This bay is one of the most beautiful places for this activity; its crystal clear water, the great visibility, the absence of strong currents and a great possibility of finding sea turtles and the Galapagos penguin (Spheniscus mendiculus).

Santa Fe

The check point to visit Santa Fe is the northwest of the island. It is a beautiful turquoise bay with two white sand beaches populated by sea lions (Zalophus wollebaeki) sunbathing. The landing is made at any of the beaches and the trail begins behind the vegetation, such as saltbush, Galapagos thornbush, leatherleaf trees, palos santos. The path is rocky, but it is not a quick or difficult hike, it takes about an hour and a half to look at the different such as Santa Fe lava lizards, Darwin finches, Galapagos doves, Galapagos snakes, rodents and perhaps the Galapagos hawk (Buteo galapagoensis) looking for a potential prey. The star on Santa Fe is the pale land iguana (Conolophus pallidus), endemic to the island, this means that it is the only place where you can find it. 

Chinese Hat & Dragon Hill

Chinese Hat (Sombrero Chino) is a very small volcano close to Santiago Island, surrounded by small spatter cones: a captivating landscape. Galapagos Penguins and Galapagos hawks are active here. We have time to enjoy the sandy beach, where sea lions rest and a variety of wading birds feed on the shore line. The tranquil waters make great snorkeling experiences, where we can observe several tropical fish, sea stars and the chance to spot penguins under water.

 

Dragon Hill, one of the few visitor sites directly related to a conservation program led by the Charles Darwin Foundation and the Galapagos National Park. It was named after the land iguanas, considered the Galápagos’ “dragons”. Heading inland on the trail, we pass two small salt-water lagoons where it is sometimes possible to spot flamingos and other shore birds. The trail continues on and circles round the hill, providing a memorable Galapagos view.
