Welcome to Galapagos! You will be picked up at the airport by your guide. Then, we will move to the Itabaca Canal and cross on a ferry. Later we will drive with the vehicle to the ranch “El Chato” in the highlands to see giant outdoor turtles. We will visit the Charles Darwin station, which is primarily an international scientific research station located on the outskirts of Puerto Ayora. We will go to your interpretation center to learn about the geology, climate, natural history, and conservation of the Galapagos Islands. In the evening, you can choose from many restaurants near the pier for dinner on your own. Overnight in Santa Cruz.
Breakfast in the hotel. Departure by boat to North of Santa Cruz Island sits two eroded cones– the Daphne’s. At the smaller (Daphne Minor) we dive along a cliff wall with hidden treasures, a rocky and sandy bottom across an incline that slopes below us like a pyramid wall. (2 dives).
Marine Life of Daphne
White and blacktip reef sharks, Galapagos sharks, sea lions, if you are particularly lucky you can see all of these predators hunting the large schools of black-striped salemas and sardines along with blue-footed boobies diving for their share! We also find turtles, yellowfin tuna, stingrays, eagle rays, marbled rays, barracudas, jewel morays, large schools of king angelfish, and much more.
Breakfast at the hotel. Depending on the availability and the travel date, we will visit Seymour (Channel or Point), Mosquera (South or North). North of Santa Cruz, Mosquera is an islet that emerges from the sea between Seymour and Baltra Island. A sandy bottom at 15-18 meters is scattered with curious garden eels and pelagic species as well as an underwater wall flowing downwards from the shallows into the deep.
Marine life of Mosquera: Hammerhead sharks and the garden eels that pop their heads out of the ground, blacktip and white tip reef sharks, sea lions, turtles, barracudas, stingrays, eagle rays, Mobula rays, Galápagos eels, and a variety of reef fish and invertebrates.
Marine Life of Seymour Channel: You may be able to spot hammerhead sharks, Galapagos sharks, White, and Blacktip reef sharks surrounded by busy reef fish. Sea lions take advantage of the action to hunt. Turtles, stingrays, eagle rays, Mobula rays, Galapagos eels, and barracudas also populate this area
Marine life of Seymour Point: Sea lions, Galapagos sharks, white and blacktip reef sharks, hammerhead sharks, reef fish, large groups of almaco jackfish, stingrays, eagle rays, barracudas, turtles, and much more.
Breakfast at the hotel. Departure by boat to the north-east of Santa Cruz island lies the famous Gordon Rocks. Sometimes called ‘The Washing Machine’ it is a popular site where intermediate and advanced divers go due to challenging currents and upwellings. (2 dives).
Marine life of Gordon Rocks: One of the best places to find Hammerhead sharks and the weird and wonderful Oceanic Sunfish (Mola Mola). Also here are Galapagos sharks, white tip reef sharks, lots of giant sea turtles, Mobula rays, stingrays, eagle rays, panamic green morays, Galapagos eels, barracuda, and various reef fish
