Day by day

Day 1 : San Cristobal Island: Interpretation Center & Tijeretas Hill

Departure from Quito/Guayaquil to San Cristobal (approximately 2 1/2 hours). Our naturalist guides pick up passengers at the airport and take them to the pier to board M/Y Coral I/M/Y Coral II.

Interpretation Center

Dry landing at Puerto Baquerizo Moreno (capital of the Galapagos Islands). The Interpretation Center is a great place for passengers to learn about islands' past in The Museum of Natural History. It displays information about volcanic origins of islands, climate and the arrival of different species. It also displays the human history, chronologically describing the most important events in the discovery and colonization of the islands.

Tijeretas Hill

Tijeretas Hill is a strenuous walk that takes you through beautiful scenery and offers a spectacular view of the frigate bird nesting colony from the top.

 

Day 2 : San Cristobal Island: Cerro Brujo & Pitt Point

Cerro Brujo

Wet landing. Cerro Brujo is an eroding tuff cone that at several locations is composed of AA lava formations and a beautiful white sandy beach, great for snorkeling and sunbathing. There is a lagoon visit 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 vadjacent coast.

Pitt Point

Wet landing followed by a high-intensity hike on rocky terrain. The trail includes a 90 meters long, olivine beach 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 frigate birds and a sea lion colony. It is also excellent for dinghy rides and snorkeling, where a good range of sea birds can be observed.
