After breakfast, our guide will take you to Mosquera Islet, an easily accessed scuba diving site. Mosquera is located between North Seymour and Baltra. The maximum depth for this dive site is 30 m (98 ft) and currents are generally mild. This site is famous for the sea lions that come and play during the dive. Sharks, turtles, rays, barracudas and tropical fish are also common in this area.


Another wonderful day diving in Bartolome and Cousins offers fascinating underwater landscapes, amongst them the terraced steps that descend to 30 m (98 ft) before dropping down to a sandy bottom at 40 m (131 ft). The steps are covered with soft black coral, and are an excellent place to find Pacific seahorses. The overhangs from some of the steps are the favorite places of the White Tipped reef sharks, green sea turtles, large moray eels, as well as octopi. Manta rays, hammerheads, schools of barracudas, other reef fish can also be seen at these sites and off into the blue.


This day will offer some morning free time where it is recommended to spend time in Tortuga Bay. This luxurious white sand beach is a great place to see marine iguanas and have the opportunity to go kayaking along the coast. Many travelers spot Tintoreras sharks while exploring the area. In the afternoon, your transportation will pick you up from the hotel in Puerto Ayora at 12:30, and after lunch, you will take a speedboat to Isabela (2 hours). There, you will visit the Flamingo Lagoon and spend the night relaxing.


After an early breakfast, we’ll take an exciting excursion to the Sierra Negra volcano. This volcano is located 21 km (13 miles) away from Port Villamil and has the second-largest volcanic crater in the world, measuring about 9.7 km (6 miles) in diameter and 90 m (295 ft) deep. To arrive at this incredible sight, we travel in a bus or similar vehicle for 45 minutes to the Galapagos National Park, where we will register our visit and begin our hike to the Sierra Negra Volcano. We’ll then proceed to the Volcan Chico where you can feel the warmth of the ground as proof of its activity.

Here, we’ll stop for a box lunch before returning to the hotel. After a brief rest, we’ll have the chance to go snorkeling or swimming at Concha Perla where we can observe the colorful fish, sea urchins, starfish, sea lions, or even sea turtles.


An early morning speedboat will take us back to Puerto Ayora, and after a quick breakfast, you will head to the airport to catch your flight to go back to Quito.
