CM Travels | Marine Iguana

Located at the confluence of three ocean currents makes it one of the richest marine ecosystems in the world. The islands are roughly 1 000 km’s from the Ecuadorian coast. The extreme isolation and seismic volcanic activity reflects the processes that led to the development of unusual plant and animal life.

Marine iguanas, flightless cormorants, giant tortoises, huge cacti, endemic trees and the many different subspecies of mocking birds and finches – all of which inspired Charles Darwin’s theory of evolution by natural selection following his visit in 1835.

Itinerary:

Day 1: Quito – Baltra – Puerto Ayora

Flight from Quito or Guayaquil to Baltra ‘s airport – The gateway to the Galapagos. A naturalist guide will be waiting for you to escort you during the transfer to Puerto Ayora. On the way, you will make a stop to visit the highlands. Next you will enjoy lunch at the harbour.

After taking a short break the guide will take you to enjoy the well known Tortuga Bay. It is a 45 minute walk through the cactus trail on to the first beach. It is called Playa Brava due to its strong currents. On this beach you should see a lot of marine iguanas, marine animals and pelicans.

After visiting Playa Brava, you will continue with an additional 15 minute walk to reach Playa Mansa. This second beach is a natural lagoon visited by blue footed boobies and pelicans. It is also a beautiful place to swim and sunbathe. Afterwards, you will go back to your Hotel. 

Enjoy dinner and overnight.

Day 2: Sailing Tour – Bartolome OR North Seymour OR Plazas

After breakfast, the tour guide will meet you in the lobby of the hotel to take you to the dock and begin your tour. Lunch is included on board the yacht. Depending on availability, choose one of the following tours:

North Seymour Island is a great place to hike, swim, and enjoy snorkelling. The main attractions are: the frigates, boobies, gulls, hawks, green sea turtles and the famous Galapagos Sharks.

Bartolome Island has the most attractive landscape of the archipelago. This island is undoubtedly the most photographed of all the Galapagos Islands. You can appreciate a beautiful view of two beautiful bays and observe the fascinating formation of lava and volcanic cones.

Two islands form Plazas. The turquoise waters of the channel contrast brilliantly with the white sand and black lava coast. It is a wonderful spot to observe marine life, including manta rays. It is a perfect spot for snorkelling activity.

Enjoy a hearty dinner after a full day exploring the Galapagos.
