Day 1 - Santa Cruz
Begin at the highlands, where you will find the Galapágos tortoises some of which are the size of a small car! Make your way to the Charles Darwin Research Station and the ocean-side town of Puerto Ayora. Hop aboard your tender and head towards your awaiting yacht.
Day 2 - Española
In the morning, you will arrive off the coast of Espanola, which is thought to be more than four million years old. On the white-sand beaches you will discover native, playful sea lions. One of the most well-known spots is Punta Suárez, famed for its waved albatross who perform intricate mating dances.
Day 3 - San Cristóbal
Enjoy a handcrafted brunch from your onboard chef, while taking in the spectacular view of San Cristóbal. Trek to Punta Pitt to view the blue-footed, red-footed, and Nazca boobies all in the same place. Take your tender for a cruise along the Cerro Brujo cliffs to Kicker Rock. Put on your snorkel gear and jump in, as this ancient volcanic cone is a premier location for snorkeling and diving. Swim with sharks, and feel the tickle of tropical fish all around you.
Day 4 - Sante Fé and South Plaza

Day 5 - Genovesa
Known as Tower Island, this rocky plateau is the perfect habitat for many native birds. Landing ashore you will discover the red-footed boobies, great frigates, swallow-tailed gulls, and even owls. As one of Prince Philip’s favorite island, you will find his name carved into the Cliffside. Climb the stairs to the top for a spectacular sunset view.
Day 6 - Santiago and Bartolomé
The other-worldly landscape of Santiago Island is created from the once flowing lava. Trek across this barren field to explore the contradictory white-sand beach of Sullivan Bay. Enjoy the island time, as you soak up the sun. Hike the trail to the top of the island for sweeping views.
Day 7 - Rábida Island
Sea lions have made their home among the red-sand beaches found along the shore of Rabida Island. Peek at the saltwater lagoon where you may even find a flamingo.
