Journey to the Pinnacle Rock of Galapagos

Our quite complete 4 nights central route is extremely rich in contrast. It combines the dramatic volcanic scenery of Sullivan Bay and Bartolomé, with different islets in the heart of the archipelago that house largest colonies of blue footed booby and frigatebird (North Seymour) and Galapagos sea lion (Mosquera). Other highlight of this cruise certainly is – not to be missed – South Plaza, where unworldly Galapagos land iguanas crawl below bizarre g


Arrival at Baltra airport - Santa Cruz

After your arrival at Baltra airport your tour will start on adjacent main island of Santa Cruz, where you will cross the surprisingly lush highlands by bus and reach its touristic harbour town of Puerto Ayora. A visit to the Charles Darwin Research Station and the famous Galapagos giant tortoise breeding center is an interesting introduction to this unique archipelago. Read more

Santiago - Bartolome

Motor Catamaran Galapagos Treasure will anchor just out of the coast of Santiago, between two unique sites. This is the north-western corner of the archipelago, where volcanoes are still active. So today is largely dedicated to volcanism and dramatic scenery. The forces that have created these islands will impress you forever. Enjoy the famous, wild romantic panorama of the volcanic islet of Bartolome and make an impressive ‘moonwalk’ on the barren lava flow of Sullivan Bay. Very close to the equator you will have first opportunities to encounter endangered Galapagos penguins; whilst snorkelling in a warm shallow bath full of colourful reef fish, you might even encounter these agile hunters fishing!

North Seymour - Mosquera

North Seymour is one of the most visited sites of the Galapagos National Park. This tabletop islet is overloaded with most extensive colonies of frigatebirds and blue-footed boobies in the archipelago, and there crawl Galapagos land iguanas around as well. Mosquera is a small islet formed by a geological uplift, with a reef of rocks and coral and a great white sand beach. It stands out by one of the largest concentrations of Galapagos sea lions in the entire archipelago. It lies in the middle of the Itabaca Channel, between Baltra and North Seymour. Read more

Sout Plaza - San Cristobal

Below bizarre giant prickly pear cacti on South Plaza you will encounter characteristic land iguanas, while steep cliffs down the highest rim form a very different habitat with lots of sea birds. Although this ‘Jurassic islet’ is different to every other site in the National Park, at the same time it is so typical Galapagos with its sharp contrasts, amazing diversity and stunning concentration of wildlife. Whilst looking out for whales, the longest day passage of this route will take you to the easternmost island of San Cristobal. Its striking coral sand beaches at azure bays are favourite places for large colonies of Galapagos sea lions. In the afternoon you can stroll along the scenic beach below the tuff cone of Witch Hill.

San Cristobal - Departure

This cruise itinerary ends in Puerto Baquerizo Moreno, where plenty Galapagos sea lions have taken over the harbour at Wreck Bay, the touristic pier and promenade of Galapagos’ capital Puerto Baquerizo Moreno. A visit to the excellent Interpretation Centre and its botanical garden give you a perfect resume of this unique archipelago. The center explains a series of natural circumstances such as the volcanic origins of the islands, their remoteness from the continent, its ocean currents, its special climate, the arrival of different species, and their establishment, among others. Transfer to San Cristobal airport for your flight back to Guayaquil or Quito. Read more

More information

  • The Galapagos Islands are a year-round destination with perfect holiday weather; wildlife is bustling all over the year, and each season has its own charm. The overall climate is quiet and warm, and unusual dry for the tropics, saving local micro-climates in the moist highlands. The weather is calm as well; the islands aren’t located on the path of cyclones or tropical storms.
  • Although this archipelago is situated on the equator, actually the climate can only be characterized as tropical in the first half of the year. This ‘hot season’ never gets excessively hot, but counts with a very intense equatorial sun, blue skies, alternated with some rain or even an occasional shower. From about June onwards to the end of the year is the cooler, dryer and overcast ‘garúa season’. Although called ‘cool season’, these months still count most of the time with nice summer weather, and give the opportunity to avoid the most intense sunshine.
