    Stop At: Punta Carrión, Ecuador

    This tour is offered on:

    Wednesday: Punta Carrión / South Plaza Island
    Friday: South Plaza Island / Punta Carrión
    Please note: The following descriptions and itinerary details reflect our typical.

    fter gathering all their essentials (camera, hat, sunscreen, swim gear, etc.), guests head out from the meeting point at approximately 8:15 a.m. Around that time we head to the town of Puerto Ayora and hop aboard a transfer bus that will take us on a 45-minute drive across the beautiful highlands of Santa Cruz Island to the Itabaca Channel. Once there, we board the Yacht and set sail at approximately 9:45 a.m. Our first stop along the way is Punta Carrión. Around 10:10 a.m., we put on our snorkeling gear and jump in the water to begin our snorkeling activity that will last a little under an hour. Punta Carrión is a small bay that is ideal for viewing a variety of colorful fish, rays, and possibly even whitetip reef sharks!

    Duration: 2 hours

    Stop At: South Plaza Island, Ecuador

    Following the snorkeling activity at Punta Carrión, we board the Yacht once more and continue on our way to South Plaza Island. Once there, we take a small dinghy (panga) to the shore and perform a dry landing. One of our Galapagos National Park-certified guides leads us on a walking excursion where we explore the fascinating terrain covered in scarlet/colored sesuvium succulents and verdant prickly pear cacti. Hybrid land/marine iguanas roam about the island and its black lava rock shores, mingling with Sally Lightfoot crabs, swallow-tailed gulls, red-billed tropicbirds, and two kinds of boobies: Nazca and blue-footed. South Plaza Island sits across from North Plaza Island, and the channel in between them is a beautiful and clear turquoise color, where you can often spot a bachelor sea lion colony. Lunch is served aboard the Yacht.

    Keep in mind: Day Tours are subject to change due to weather conditions, logistical reasons, guests’ safety and/or Galapagos National Park Regulations.
