Day 1: Galapagos Islands
Upon your arrival to the airport in Baltra Island, you will be transferred to the Darwin Yacht. After settling in the yacht, your first visit will be to the Twin Craters, geological formations that were created as a result of the collapse or sinking of surface materials into cracks or manholes. You will also have the opportunity to observe land birds especially the woodpecker finch and the vermillion flycatcher. After this activity head back to the yacht for dinner.

Day 2: Galapagos Islands
First visit of the day will be to Port Egas, a black sand beach located on the west side of James Bay and northwest of Santiago Island. This place was formed by deposits of volcanic tuff, and there is also a saltwater lagoon. After this visit, head to Espumilla Beach on the northern coast of Santiago Island in James Bay, a nesting site for marine turtles, where a palo Santo Forest can be seen while you rest on the beach and enjoy the landscape.
Day 3: Darwin Yacht
We begin with a hike to enjoy the most amazing panoramic view at the Galapagos Islands. After, relax on the beach or take the opportunity to snorkel at the reef to see various fish, friendly sea lions, and sea turtles. In the afternoon, we visit Sullivan Bay on Santiago Island, to see fascinating giant lava formations, due to the recent formation of the island, and where you can also swim and snorkel to see seals and penguins. Return to the yacht and dinner.
Day 4: End of Itinerary
On the last morning, you will visit Bachas Beach. This beautiful beach is located in the north of Santa Cruz Island. The beach is one km long. The site was named during WWII (World War II) when the American army left two barges on the beach. The early colonists couldn’t pronounce barges correctly, so they called the area “Bachas”. After this, you will be transferred to the airport.
