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 at the hotel. This morning we will have a great opportunity to explore a different landscape, Punta Estrada, and Divine Bay by sea kayaks. We paddle through serene turquoise waters that meander through towering lava channel walls. You can also paddle right up to the fearless blue-footed boobies, lava gulls, herons, sally light-footed crabs, and marine iguanas perched along the cliffs. After lunch, we take a 50-minute hike (each way) to Tortuga Bay through a unique dry forest. Along the hike, you will find many birds and interesting plants. When you reach the beach, you will hardly believe your eyes, as this is one of the most beautiful beaches in the Galapagos. Relax on its fine sands or in its turquoise waters! Overnight in Santa Cruz.

At arrival, a guide will transfer you to your hotel and you will have the rest of the morning free to go biking to the “Muro de las Lagrimas”/” Wall of Tears” by yourself.
