DAY TOUR OPTIONS ABOARD OUR YACHT

North Seymour Island and Las Bachas Beach

North Seymour is teeming with life! Cliffs that are only a few meters high form the shoreline and serve as the spot where swallow-tailed gulls sit among the ledges and rocks accompanied by playful sea lions. A tiny forest of silver-grey Palo Santo trees stands just above the landing, usually without leaves, waiting for the rains to burst into bloom.

Available on Mondays (Las Bachas/North Seymour) and Sundays (North Seymour/Las Bachas)

Bartolome Island

Bartolome is famous for Pinnacle Rock, a towering and spearheaded obelisk that rises from the ocean’s edge and is the best-known landmark in the islands. Galapagos penguins — the only species of penguin found north of the equator — walk precariously along narrow volcanic ledges at its base. Sea lions snooze on rocky platforms, ready to slide into the water to play with passing snorkelers.

Available on Tuesdays and Saturdays

South Plaza Island

South Plaza is a small island full of fascinating wildlife, both along its shore and along its dramatic, wind-swept cliffs: sea lions, land iguanas, swallow-tailed gulls, Opuntia cacti and vegetation that changes colors according to the season. South Plaza is one of Galapagos’ most impressive visiting sites.

Available on Wednesdays and Fridays

Santa Fe Island

Santa Fe offers one of the more beautiful and sheltered coves in the islands. Its turquoise lagoon is protected by a peninsula of tiny islets that form an ideal anchorage spot. The island lies to the southeast of Santa Cruz and sits within sight of Puerto Ayora. Like North Seymour, Santa Fe has been uplifted seismically, and you can see underwater lava formations out in the open.

Available on Thursdays
