Day 6 On-board ship (The Galapagos Islands)
This morning you will visit Galapaguera de Cerro Colorado, which is a great place to see Galapagos giant tortoises in their natural habitat. In the afternoon, you'll visit the pretty white coral beach at Cerro Brujo, located on the island's north coast. Here you will have the opportunity to snorkel or walk along the beach. The bird life here is excellent - with blue-footed boobies as well as frigate birds.
Day 7 On-board ship (The Galapagos Islands)
Today you will wake up in Gardner Bay on Española Island. Gardner Bay provides an excellent beach for relaxing, swimming, snorkelling and kayaking, and the opportunity to observe sea lions. In the afternoon, you'll head to Punta Suarez, which is located on the western coast of Española Island. This rocky spot sustains one of the most impressive and varied colonies of sea birds in the Galapagos, including the waved albatross.
Day 8 On-board ship (The Galapagos Islands)
This morning you'll visit Cormorant Point on Floreana Island. This site offers probably the best flamingo lagoon in the Galapagos. There are various birds to observe besides flamingos, such as common stilts and white-cheeked pintail ducks. The afternoon you will visit Post Office Bay. This site is the location of a wooden barrel which was placed here in the 18th century by the crew of a whaling ship. It has been used since this time by sailors and tourists as a post office.
