    Day by Day Itinerary: Grace Galapagos Deluxe Cruise Central and South Islands

    DAY 1 | SATURDAY | Welcome to San Cristobal | L.D.

    Upon arrival in San Cristobal Island, passengers are picked up at the airport by our naturalist guides and taken on a ten minute bus drive to the pier to board the M/Y Grace, for a 7-night cruise with daily explorations and other interesting activities in the following locations: Lobos in San Cristobal Island, Punta Suarez and Gardner Bay in Hood Island (Espanola), Post Office Bay, Cormorant Point, and Champion Islet in Floreana Island,  Charles Darwin Research Station, Bachas Beach, The Highlands, Black Turtle Cove, and Chinese Hat in Santa Cruz Island, Rabida Island, Sullivan Bay in Santiago Island, Pinnacle Rock in Bartolome Island, North Seymour Island. Once on board the M/Y Grace the Double State Room Class cabins will be assigned, followed by an introductory briefing and lunch.

    Lobos Island lives up to its name of -Sea Lion Island- with its noisy population of frolicking and barking beasts. It lies just a short navigation north, up the west coast of San Cristobal, separated by a channel that forms an inviting lagoon. This is where you’ll have your first chance to share the water with a playful colony of the “wolves of the sea”. From lobos we should have views of Kicker Rock, a spectacular formation that rises 152 meters (500 feet) out of the Pacific. It takes the form of a sleeping lion, but from another angle you can see that the rock is split, forming a colossal tablet and, piercing the sea, a great chisel ready for etching.

    After this visit you have time for a shower as we get ready for our welcome cocktail and our first formal briefing before dinner.

    Activities: Hiking/Nature Walks, Snorkeling, and Zodiac Rides.


    DAY 2 | SUNDAY | B.L.D.

    Punta Suarez (Española Island): In the morning we visit Punta Suarez where you will witness the largest variety of marine iguanas in the Galapagos, masked boobies and blue footed boobies nesting along the cliff´s edge, as well as the famous waved albatross.

    Gardner Bay (Española Island): In the afternoon we visit Gardner Bay, a magnificent long white sandy beach, where colonies of sea lions laze in the sun, sea turtles swim offshore, and inquisitive mockingbirds boldly investigate new arrivals.

    Activities: Hiking/Nature Walks, Snorkeling, Kayaking, and Zodiac Rides.


    DAY 3 | MONDAY | B.L.D.

    Floreana Island: Cormorant Point & Champion Islet: Floreana has had a colorful history: Pirates, whalers, convicts, and a small band of somewhat peculiar colonists—a Baroness among them—who chose a Robinson Crusoe existence that ended in mystery and death. We visit Post Office Bay, where in 1793 British whalers set up a barrel as the island‘s Post Office, to send letters home on passing ships. The tradition continues to this day, simply by dropping a post card into the barrel without a stamp.

    Afternoon visit to Punta Cormorant which offers two highly contrasting beaches; a green-olivine beach and an iron-red beach. Between the two beaches is a salt lagoon frequented by flamingoes, pintails, stilts and other wading birds. Late afternoon snorkeling at Champion Islet, this is home to a myriad of marine species including a variety of pencil sea urchin, wrasses, angelfish and amberjacks. Look for sea lions, rays, white-tipped reef sharks, and sea turtles.

    Activities: Hiking/Nature Walks, Snorkeling, and Zodiac Rides.


    DAY 4 | TUESDAY | B.L.D.

    Breeding Center/Charles Darwin Reserve Station (Santa Cruz Island): In the morning we visit the Charles Darwin Research Station to see the Giant Tortoise and Land Iguana Breeding and Rearing Program. The Fausto Llerena Center is located on the island of Santa Cruz and is part of the Charles Darwin Research Station. The Fausto Llerena Center receives about 7,800 visitors a month and currently houses 925 youth and 70 adult turtles. It has been the primary center for the Galapagos Tortoise Breeding Project. This project, which began in the 1970’s, has been an incredible success in helping repopulate the Galapagos Giant Tortoise population.

    Highlands (Santa Cruz Island): Afternoon visit to the Highlands; where the dry coastal vegetation transition to lush wet fields and forests overgrown with moss and lichens. Our destination is the Tortoise Reserve, where we will have the chance to see these animals in the wild as well as walk through lava tubes and see the twin collapsed craters.

    Activities: Hiking/Nature Walks


    DAY 5 | WEDNESDAY | B.L.D.

    Las Bachas Beach (Santa Cruz Island): In the morning we visit Las Bachas; a sandy white-coral beach that is a major egg-laying site for sea turtles. The name Bachas refers to the remains of landing craft left here at the end of WWII. Ashore, marine iguanas mingle with flamingos and other wading birds in another of the many super saline lagoons found in the Galapagos.

    Chinese Hat Islet: is a fairly recent volcanic cone, has the shape of a down-facing Chinese hat for which it is named. On the rocky shoreline of nearby Santiago island, Galapagos penguins dot the coast. There is a small sea lion cove on the north shore, where boats anchor and land at the visitor site. Late afternoon snorkeling with sea lions and penguins and swimming opportunities in the cove.

    Activities: Hiking/Nature Walks, Snorkeling, Kayaking, and Zodiac Rides.


    DAY 6 | THURSDAY | B.L.D.

    Rabida Island: In the morning we go to Rabida Island, also commonly called by its English name of Jervis Island; it is known for its unique reddish-maroon terrain as a result of the oxidation of lava. It is home to large populations of sea lions, pelicans, flamingoes, as well as a thick forest of Palo Santo trees. A yellow saltwater lagoon is found behind the reddish beach, where vast numbers of brightly colored pink flamingoes can be seen lazing around male sea lions that have been ousted from their groups. Enjoy a late morning snorkeling opportunity with sea lions and tropical fish along the rocks.

    Sullivan Bay (Santiago Island): Start the afternoon with a visit to Sullivan Bay, one of the most outstanding volcanic sites in the Galapagos. In the nearly 100 years since the Sullivan Bay Flow, only a few plants like Mollugo and Lava cacti have managed to take root in this harsh environment. Oyster catchers can be seen fishing for crabs and mollusks in the tide pools of Sullivan Bay. After exploring the lava flow, there is swimming and snorkeling with playful sea lions off two small coralline beaches.

    Activities: Hiking/Nature Walks, Snorkeling, Kayaking, and Zodiac Rides.


    DAY 7 | FRIDAY | B.L.D.

    Pinnacle Rock (Bartolome Island): In the morning we visit Bartolome Island, famous for Pinnacle Rock, where we will see Galapagos Penguins and sea lions. We will also hike a trail to Bartolome´s Summit where you will be rewarded with spectacular views of Pinnacle Rock and our beach, where the crystal blue waters of the bay cradle your yacht.

    North Seymour Island: Begin the afternoon with a visit to North Seymour, a good nesting site for frigate birds and blue-footed boobies. The Island was lifted from the ocean floor by a seismic event, and its origins as a seabed give the island its low, flat profile. This island is teaming with life! You might have to give way to a passing sea lion or marine iguana; blue-footed booby nests sit beside the trail where mating pairs perform their courtship dance. A tiny forest of silver-grey Palo Santo trees stand just above the landing, usually without leaves, waiting for the rain to bring them into bloom.

    Activities: Hiking/Nature Walks, Snorkeling, and Zodiac Rides.


    DAY 8 | SATURDAY | Black Turtle Cove (Santa Cruz) / Baltra / Home / Next Destination | B.

    Baltra Airport: Today our Galapagos cruise comes to an end, but before we bid farewell to the Grace and her crew, we pay a visit to Black Turtle Cove, a mangrove estuary on the northern shores of Santa Cruz Island. We visit the cove via panga (local dinghy) but with the engines turned off. Many rays, sea turtles, pelicans and other wildlife live among the mangroves.

    Activities: Zodiac (Panga) Ride.

    Next we are transferred to the Baltra airport for the local flight back to the mainland (airfare is not included) to connect with your outbound flight (airfare is not included).

Here we visit the busy textile market located at ‘Poncho Plaza’, famous as one of the largest open-air markets in South America.
