Galapagos Legend

Galapagos Legend C

GALAPAGOS LEGEND - CRUISE C

Cruise C (Mon - Thu) - 4 days / 3 nights


Day 1: Monday
- AM – Baltra Airport

Departure from Quito or Guayaquil to Baltra (2 ½ hours flight). Passengers are picked up at the airport by our naturalist guides and taken on a ten minute bus drive to the 
pier to board the M/V Galapagos Legend.

- PM – Mosquera Islet 
Wet Landing, Mosquera Islet is located between North Seymour and Baltra Islands, this flat, sandy island has a large colony of sea lions. It is also an excellent site for 
observing shorebirds such as herons and Lava Gulls. There is no trail on Mosquera Island, so any visitor can enjoy an open are. Most of the islet is covered with sand and 
barren lava rock. Very little sesuvium portulacastrum grows on the sand.
Difficulty level: easy
Type of terrain: sandy 
Duration: 1h30 walk & snorkeling

Day 2: Tuesday
- AM – South Plaza (Plazas Island)
Dry landing on the northern part of the Islet. The walk begins with an impressive cactus forest* surrounded by land and marine iguanas*; as we reach its highest 
point, be on the lookout for tropicbirds, a Nazca and blue-footed boobies, swallow-tailed gulls*. In South Plaza there is a large colony of the smaller sized land iguanas. The population 
is approximately 300 individuals. They feed on all kinds of vegetation, but during the dry season survive on the fruits and flowers of Opuntia cacti. Due to their proximity 
with marine iguanas, this is the only place on Earth where we will find the Galapagos hybrid iguana*.
Difficulty level: intermediate.
Type of terrain: rocky
Duration: 2 hours walk

- PM – Santa Fe
Wet landing on a white sand beach surrounded by a sea lion colony; we continue walking through an endemic cactus forest as we search for the endemic Santa Fe 
land iguana*, the largest in the islands and distinctively paler. This island is home to a number of endemic species including Galapagos Hawk*, Galapagos Snake, a variety 
of finches and one of the four species of Galapagos mockingbirds*. Deep-water snorkeling.
Difficulty level: intermediateType of terrain: rocky
Duration: 1h30 walk / 1 hour deep-water snorkeling

Day 3: Wednesday
- AM – Pitt Point / Pitt Islet (San Cristobal)
Wet landing followed by a high intensity hike on rocky terrain. The trail includes an olivine beach of 90 meters long and a path that climbs to the top of a volcanic tuff, 
through several magnificent viewpoints*. This is probably the only site where the three booby species* of the Galapagos can be seen together, as well as two 
species of frigatebirds* and a sea lion colony; it is also excellent for dinghy rides and snorkeling, where a good range of sea birds can be observed.
Difficulty level: difficult
Type of terrain: rocky 
Duration: 2h30 walk

- PM – Cerro Brujo (San Cristobal)
Wet landing. Cerro Brujo is an eroding tuff cone* that at several locations is composed of AA lava formations, and a beautiful white sand beach*, great for 
snorkeling and sunbathing. We visit a lagoon where migratory bird* species can be seen: Black-necked Stilts, Ruddy Turnstones, Whimbrels, other sandpiper species and 
White-cheeked Pintails. Cerro Brujo offers beautiful views of Kicker Rock, the southern part of San Cristobal and the adjacent coast.
Difficulty level: easy
