Bartolomé Island, Full day.

Introduction
A viewpoint some 350 feet above sea level offers breathtaking views to surrounding islands and Pinnacle Rock. The orange beach and coastline offers great swimming and snorkeling with the opportunity of seeing penguins, sea lions, rays, reef fish and white-tipped reef sharks.

Description
This fantastic daylong tour offers spectacular volcanic landscapes and great snorkeling. The journey in the launch takes almost two hours but there is the chance of seeing dolphins and even whales during the crossing. And, the launch will stop at Daphne Island, a volcanic tuff cone formation to view the sea lions and various sea birds that inhabit it. Bartolome Island itself is famous for its ‘Pinnacle Rock’ - probably the most photographed volcanic formation in the islands.  Climb up a long wooden staircase comprising 360+ steps to the viewpoint on the summit that offers uninterrupted views to nearly all the central islands in the archipelago. A short dinghy ride after the walk will allow you to photograph the Galapagos Penguins that live along the coastline. Lunch is served with one of the most amazing volcanic backdrops found anywhere in the archipelago. Please bring walking shoes, sun hat, sun block and beachwear.

Includes: transport, guide, breakfast, lunch, water, towels, snorkeling equipment. Wet suits are not provided.

North Seymour Island & Bachas Beach, Full day.

Introduction
This picturesque island offers the opportunity of close up encounters with many marine birds, including the Dancing Blue Footed Booby and magnificent Frigate bird, as well as Land Iguanas and Lava Lizards.

Description
Located slightly to the north of the island of Baltra, and a short boat ride from Santa Cruz Island, North Seymour is a low, flat island, formed as a result of the uplift caused by magma build up below. It is covered with low, bushy vegetation and contains the largest colony of magnificent Frigate birds in the Galapagos; Land Iguanas are common here too.  There is also a population of Blue-Footed Boobies that perform an amusing courtship dance when nesting conditions are right, making this one of the highlights of the visit. On your return, the launch will make its way back towards Santa Cruz, where it will anchor in calm water on Bachas Beach so that you can enjoy your lunch. A walk along the beach after lunch promises Sea Turtle nests, shorebirds, diving Boobies and even Flamingos. Snorkeling and easy swimming from the beach follows the walk. Please bring walking shoes, sun hat, sun block and beachwear.

Includes: transport, guide, breakfast, lunch, water, towels, snorkeling equipment. Wet suits are not provided.

Introduction
One of a very colorful pair of small uplifted islands a short distance from the east coast of Santa Cruz, South Plaza has a unique landscape of Sesuvium plants and Opuntia cacti and provides some of the most interesting wildlife observation spots in Galapagos.

Description
Land iguanas are easily seen from the trail, normally lazing in the shade of the cacti. Swallow-tailed Gulls and Frigate birds use the rising air off the sea to glide effortlessly over the escarpment. Towards the far end of the island lives a ‘bachelor colony’ of male Sea Lions. Lunch is served anchored close to the rocky seashore inhabited by a large colony of playful Sea Lions. After lunch, a short boat ride to Punta Carrion offers the opportunity for easy snorkeling and swimming around a shallow and protected cove.
