Itinerary in Brief
Day 1: San Cristobal Airport - San Cristobal: El Junco Lagoon
Day 2: Floreana: Post Office Bay - Cormorant Point, Devil's Crown
Day 3: Suarez Point - Gardener Bay, Osborn Islet, Gardener Islet
Day 4: Santa Cruz - Departure
Day 1: San Cristobal Airport - El Junco Lagoon
In the morning, you will arrive at San Cristobal Island. After passing through immigration and baggage claim, you will be met by the Majestic staff and transferred to the yacht. You will be shown to your cabin where you will have some time to settle in before lunch and a welcome briefing.
In the afternoon, your first visit takes you to El Junco Lagoon. Located in the highlands 19 kilometers from Puerto Baquerizo Moreno, El Junco is located in the caldera of an extinct volcano. Rainwater feeds the lagoon. There are many farms and ranches in this area of San Cristobal Island, and sometime cows can be found near the lagoon.
Day 2: Floreana: Post Office Bay, Cormorant Point, Devil's Crown
In the morning, you will visit the famous Post Office Bay. You will land on a beach and head to a spot where 18th century whalers placed a wooden barrel used as an unofficial mail box. The custom continues to this day with Galapagos visitors. So, don’t forget your postcards, and don’t be surprised if the post card arrives to its destination before you even get home!
Your afternoon visit is to Cormorant Point. Here you will enjoy a hike to a salt-water lagoon which is home to flamingos. You will also have a chance to snorkel around Devil’s Crown which is the rocky remains of an offshore volcano sticking out of the water. This is a great location to see a wide range of marine creatures.
Day 3: Espanola: Suarez Point - Gardener Bay, Osborn Islet, Gardener Islet
Your morning excursion takes you to Suarez Point. On the way you will have the chance to see
blue-footed boobies, albatrosses, and Nazca boobies. This island is the
breeding site of nearly all of the world’s 12,000 pairs of waved
albatrosses. You will also visit a beautiful site on the ocean front
where there is a cliff that the large albatrosses use as a launching
You will have the chance to see the famous blowhole that spurts
water into the air. The landscape is great for photography.
In the afternoon, you will visit the spectacular Gardner Bay. After landing, you can walk across a lovely white-sand beach amongst a busy sea lion colony or dive into the water to swim with sea lion pups. You may also see curious mockingbirds on the beach.
Day 4: Santa Cruz: Twin Craters - Departure
In the morning, you will visit Twin Craters located opposite to each other on both sides of the road leading from Puerto Ayora to Baltra. The name is only figurative; not real craters, these formations were created by the collapse of surface material in underground fissures and chambers. The view is breathtaking.
After visiting the Twin Craters, you will be transferred to the Baltra airport to catch your flight to Guayaquil or Quito on mainland Ecuador.
