Arrive by plane at San Cristóbal Island and transfer to Yacht La Pinta. This afternoon, land back at Puerto Baquerizo Moreno and drive 40 minutes to the island's southern shore. At Cerro Colorado, visit the breeding centre of the highly-endangered giant tortoises in the midst of a fantastic deciduous forest, home to dozens of bird species and the endemic San Cristóbal lava lizard. (L)(D)
Land at the eastern tip of San Cristóbal Island. The trail that ascends from the beach provides spectacular views of the shoreline; see the two frigate species, plus a colony of bachelor sea lions. After the walk, if conditions are favourable, there is a chance to swim from the beach and snorkelling by an islet. (B)(L)(D)
This morning’s outing at Punta Suárez provides an exciting walk on lava/boulder terrain to visit its unique sea bird colonies, including the waved albatrosses (April - December), boobies, swallow-tail gulls, and the famous "blowhole". Also, look for red-green-black marine iguanas. Return to the yacht for lunch.
In the afternoon, set down at Gardener Bay’s white coral beach for a short walk to observe the sea lions, mockingbirds, finches or enjoy the beach. There is great snorkelling in this area, or else there's time to kayak or ride the glass-bottom boat. (B)(L)(D)
Disembark in the morning and visit the Charles Darwin Research Station. Transfer by bus across Santa Cruz Island and a short ferry ride to Baltra. Transfer to the airport to take the flight back to the mainland. (B)
