Listed below are some of the islands we may visit during our expeditions:
Isla Bartolomé: Walk to the top of Bartolomé’s volcanic cone for a stunning view of Pinnacle Rock and the surrounding beaches. After the hike, immerse yourself among schools of multicolored reef fish. You may also have the opportunity to swim with Galapagos penguins.
Isla Santiago: Follow a path along a series of tide pools and underwater caverns in search of Galapagos fur seals, marine iguanas, sea lions, shore birds, and Sally Lightfoot crabs.
Isla Santa Cruz: Visit the Charles Darwin Research Station, a breeding area for endangered endemic species. Then tour the neighboring captive breeding program for endangered Galapagos giant tortoises run by the the Galapagos National Park Service, and supported by the National Geographic–Lindblad Fund. Travel into the highlands to observe and photograph these tortoises in the wild.
Isla Isabela: Explore the largest island in the group, home to marine iguanas, abundant sea turtles, the only species of flightless cormorant in the world, and the only penguin species that inhabits the equator. Cruise by Zodiac and hike against a backdrop of giant shield volcanoes, and snorkel in the cool waters that often draw whales and dolphins to the area.
Isla Floreana: Hike to a turtle nesting beach and a lagoon that is home to flamingos and other bird species. At Champion Islet, snorkel among sea lions and visit Post Office Bay, founded by whalers in the 18th century. If you see a letter addressed to someone who lives near you, the tradition is to deliver it by hand.
Isla Fernandina: Discover the marine iguana haven of Punta Espinoza as we hike over lava flows. Galapagos hawks, sea lion nurseries, and rare flightless cormorants can be found while exploring this island. Snorkel among sea turtles, penguins, and the occasional marine iguana.
Isla Española: See swallow-tailed gulls, Española mockingbirds, boobies, and waved albatrosses in this birder’s paradise. Walk among vivid green-and-red marine iguanas and unique lava lizards, and observe sea lions up close on a pristine white-sand beach.
