Galapagos Adventure Cruise | Day by Day
Baltra—Santa Cruz Island
Arrive Baltra Airport, Galápagos. Meet your guide and transfer from the airport across the Itabaca channel to the Island of Santa Cruz.
On Santa Cruz, have lunch in the highlands then search among the lush grasses for grazing giant tortoises. Time permitting, explore a lava tunnel.
Continuing to the town of Puerto Ayora, visit the Charles Darwin Research Station, stop to rent a wetsuit, then board INTEGRITY to begin your cruise.
Yacht: Integrity, LD
Aboard the yacht
Live aboard the luxury yacht INTEGRITY, spending as much time ashore and in the water as the Park rules permit. With your licensed INCA-selected naturalist guides, learn about the birds and animals, geology, marine life, and oceanic systems of the Galápagos Islands.
One of the highlights, and an integral part of any visit to the Galápagos, is snorkeling with tropical fish, starfish, rays, sharks, sea lions, turtles and sometimes penguins or cormorants. On most days, you'll snorkel at least once and some days twice.
Yacht: Integrity, BLD
From anchorage in the Baltra harbor, say "adios" to INTEGRITY and her dedicated crew and return to the Baltra airport for your flight back to the Ecuadorian mainland.
