Day Cruise

Monday: Bartholomew - Chinese Hat

Bartholomew is a small Galapagos Island located 18 miles northwest from the Itabaca Channel. Arriving in Bartholomew you get a one of the most incredible landscapes. The summit trail begins with a dry landing, though sea-lions make the purpose-built dock more exciting. The trail is a dusty walk through volcanic ash. The only vegetation is the “pioneer Tiquilia plant”and greenish Chamaesyce. These are vital in binding the ash that fans down from the hill.

Tuesday: Seymour - Bachas

North Seymour Island is a small land mass located an hour away from the Itabaca Channel on the north side of Santa Cruz. This rocky island is home of one the most impressive colonies of different species of animals. While exploring the island you will find Great frigate birds that during courtship they spend hours handing nesting materials to each other. While around you will encounter some blue footed boobies cleaning the ground and transporting some twigs here and there, but never actually construct a nest. The area where the eggs are laid is marked by a ring of white guano. Heading along the shore, you traverse a wide expanse of sand criss-crossed with marine iguana trails. These reptiles nest here, so be careful where you tread. Some of the islands’s finest waves pound a boulder beach on your left; young sea-lions often body-surf here. Looking west, there are good views of the two Daphne islands, Major and Minor

Wednesday: Plazas - Santa Fe

South Plaza Island is beautiful island full of both land life and birds: including Swallow-tailed Gulls, Lava Gulls, Frigate birds, Masked boobies, Blue-footed boobies, Pelicans and Red-billed Tropicbirds. It is not really difficult to go by a gull’s nest and see some chicks flapping their wings trying to fly. Created by lava that tilted up the sea bed, South Plaza Island is countless years old, with its resident wildlife and diverse plant life having progressively taken over the island since it was formed. Visitors to the island will find that its steep, sloped cliff sides are home to an amazing variety of birds, and it is also home of large colonies of sea lions and marine animals.

Thursday: Santa Fe - Plazas

Santa Fe Island Is. also called Barrington Island after British Admiral Samuel Barrington, is formed of uplifted, submarine basaltic lava, formed a some 4 million years ago. Much of it is a faulted plateau covered with a forest of giant Opuntia cactae. As you walk through the dense bushes on the short trail, watch out for the Croton bushes, an endemic plant with an indelible stain.The most spectacular plants are the giant prickly pear cactae, unique to Santa Fe (Opuntia echios barringtonensis). The Galapagos dove is common on the trail, as are painted locusts, often pursued by a snake or two. The park monument is often a vantage point to spy a Galapagos hawk. The highlight is the land iguana, a lighter-colored iguana that is endemic to Santa Fe. is also home to a large
Sea Lion nursery.

Friday: Seymour - Bachas

After a delicious lunch onboard The M/Y WindRose, we will head to Bachas Beach, a beautiful coralline beach. This is the perfect place for practicing snorkeling, swimming or to simply enjoy the white soft sand. Several brackish lagoons only a few steps away from the sea are the feeding grounds of various wading birds, from stilts to flamingos
