Galapagos Island Hopping

This island hopping adventure lets you enjoy some of the Galapagos Island’s best bits, including spectacular feats of nature, fun activities and fearless wildlife. After flying to Baltra and crossing the Itabaca Canal, the first day will be spent visiting the highlands, German’s Beach and Grietas, with a chance to snorkel amongst hundreds of colorful fish as well as sea lions and turtles.

The next day will be an enlightening trip to the world-famous Charles Darwin Station – an opportunity to see giant tortoises, finches and learn about the story of Lonesome George. You’ll also go snorkeling at Tortuga Bay Beach, before visiting a local fish market where you can learn how to prepare a traditional ceviche. On Floreana Island you can find sea lions and marine iguanas as well as learning about the island’s intriguing history, before heading back to the mainland on the final day.
