Cormorant Itinerary 5days

DAY 1 (Saturday)
BALTRA & SANTA CRUZ ISLAND

AM: Morning flight from Quito or Guayaquil to Baltra, Galapagos Islands You will arrive at Baltra 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: Afternoon’s visit is to Bachas Beach, which is located on the north shore of Santa Cruz which is a beach for swimming. One of the few remnants of the U.S. World War II presence in the Galapagos,a floating pier, can be seen here. You may see flamingos, Sally Lightfoot crabs, hermit crabs, blacknecked stilts, and whimbrels. Sea turtles also nest on the beach. 

 

DAY 2 (Sunday)
BARTHOLOMEW & SANTIAGO ISLAND

AM: In the morning, you will head to Bartholomew Island where the famous Pinnacle Rock is found.
Bartholomew consists of an extinct volcano with a variety of red, orange, black and even green volcanic formations. We will take a trail of stairs to the summit of the volcano (about 30 or 40 minutes) where you will enjoy one of the best views of the islands! You will also visit a small, beautiful beach surrounded by the only vegetation found on this barren island. The beach is perfect for snorkeling where you may even see and swim with Galapagos penguins.

PM: In the afternoon, you will visit Sullivan Bay located on the southeast part of Santiago. This place is interesting for its geology because the area is covered by lava flows. This place has elevations in the form of small volcanoes formed by the lava flows. 

 

DAY 3 (Monday)
SOUTH PLAZA & SANTA FE ISLAND

AM: In the morning, you will visit South Plaza Island. This small island with steep cliffs was formed by rising lava and is now covered by Opuntia cacti. It is also home to one of the largest sea lion colonies as well as colorful yellow and red land iguanas. The most characteristic plant is the Sesuvium. During the rainy season its color is a greenish to yellowish tone and in the dry season (end of June through January) a bright red.

PM: Your afternoon visit is to Santa Fe Island (Barrington) which is home to the small picturesque bay and anchorage on the island’s northeast coast. The bay has two visitor trails: one leading to a scenic viewpoint atop a cliff, and the other spanning from a small beach to a tall prickly pear cactus forest.

 

DAY 4 (Tuesday)
SAN CRISTOBAL ISLAND

AM: In the morning, you will visit Witch Hill. Located on the northern coast, this eroded hill and its surroundings present one of the most picturesque beaches in the Galapagos with its white powdery sand and the abundance of animals. Wildlife includes sea turtles, rays, and various types of booby birds. The clear water provides an excellent opportunity for enjoying swimming and snorkeling. 

PM: In the afternoon, you will visit Pitt Point, situated on the north-eastern tip of the island, hosts frigate birds, storm petrels, and all three types of booby birds: the Nazca, blue-footed and redfooted boobies. A steep trail goes up a cliff and through a ravine leading visitors to an area with an abundance of birds. 

 

DAY 5 (Wednesday)
San CRISTOBAL ISLAND

AM: In the morning you will take an excursion to Lobos Island which means “Sea Lion Island.” This appropriately named island is ripe with noisy, playful, jolly sea lions who will welcome you to their home with open, well, fins. This island also offers great snorkeling opportunities as well as the chance to see blue-footed and Nazca boobies. 

PM: After this final visit, you will be transferred to the San Cristobal airport in time for your flight back to the mainland.
