CORMORANT - GALLERY

Cormorant Itinerary 4days

DAY 1 (Wednesday)
SAN CRISTOBAL ISLAND

AM: Morning flight from Quito or Guayaquil to San Cristobal, Galapagos Islands
You will arrive at San Cristobal Island in the morning. After passing through immigration and baggage
claim, you will be met by a Cormorant staff member and transferred to the yacht. You will be shown
to your cabin where you will have some time to settle in before lunch and a welcome briefing.

PM: In the afternoon, you will visit Kicker Rock. This striking rock formation is located a couple hours off
the western shore of San Cristobal. Jutting out of the water, the rocks stand vertically at hundreds of
feet above the ocean divided by a small channel. Although there are no landing areas, kayaking and
snorkeling allow visitors to spot a variety of marine life.

 

DAY 2 (Thursday)
ESPAÑOLA ISLAND

AM: In the morning, you will visit Suarez Point. On the trail you will have the chance to spot blue-footedboobies, albatrosses, and Nazca boobies. This island is the breeding site of nearly all of the world’s12,000 pairs of waved albatrosses. You will also visit a beautiful site on the ocean front where there is a cliff that the large albatrosses use as a launching pad! You will have the chance to see the famous blowhole that spurts sea water into the air. The landscape is great for photography.

PM:  The afternoon excursion takes you to the spectacular Gardner Bay. After landing, you can walk acrossa lovely white-sand beach amongst a busy sea lion colony or dive into the water to swim with sea lion pups. You may also see curious mockingbirds on the beach.

 

DAY 3 (Friday)
FLOREANA ISLAND

AM: Cormorant Point hosts a large flamingo lagoon where other birds such as common stilts and whitecheekedpintails can also be sen. The beaches on this island are distinct: The Green Beach is named so due to its green color, which comes from a high percentage of olivine crystals in the sand, and the Four Sand Beach is composed of white coral.

PM: Afterwards, you will visit Champion Islet, named after the whaler Andrew Champion, which is a small island located just offshore Floreana Island in the southern part of the Archipelago, considered as one of the most beautiful places on Galapagos for all snorkeling and diving fans and an excellent opportunity for dolphin watching.

DAY 4 (Saturday)
SANTA CRUZ ISLAND

AM: In the morning, you will visit Fausto Llerena Breeding Center in Puerto Ayora, Santa Cruz Island, where giant tortoises are bred in captivity; this is home to tortoises ranging from 3-inches (new hatchlings to 4-feet long when adults. Subspecies of the giant tortoises interact with one another, and many of the older tortoises are accustomed to humans stretching out their heads for a photo opportunity.

The babies are kept until they are about four years-old and are strong enough to survive on their own. 

After this final visit, you will be transferred to the Baltra airport in time for your flight back to the mainland
