Great Frigatebirds, Genovesa Island

Genovesa Island

Huge colonies of seabirds create a birdwatcher's paradise on Genovesa, home to one of the world's largest Red-footed Booby nesting colonies. Climb the"steps" and see Nazca Boobies, Great Frigatebirds and Storm Petrels.

Bartolomé Island, Galapagos

Bartolomé

Walk over century old pahoehoe lava flows. The appearance this lava has is almost like frail rope. The "design" induces you to see different objects and images in the lava. Later get ready for snorkelling.

Giant Tortoise, Galapagos

Punta Pitt

We may see all three species of boobies here: Red-footed, Blue-footed and Nazca, as well as both the Great and Magnificent Frigatebird. We will climb up a ravine to view one of the most scenic panoramas in the archipelago.

Los Gemelos

"Los Gemelos" are two pit craters in the midst of a forest of tall Scalesia trees that look like giant daisies and are endemic to the Galápagos. Nearby is the second largest wild Giant Tortoise population.

Floreana

Along the coast you may find eagle rays, marine turtles, Brown Pelicans and Cattle Egrets amid the red and white mangroves. Kayaking through the turquoise waters here is a true pleasure, inviting a sense of peaceful solitude.

Nazca Boobies, Punta Suárez

Española

Visit Punta Suárez where sheer cliffs provide superb thermals for Swallow-tailed Gulls, Nazca Boobies and Blue- footed Boobies. The largest seabird to nest here, the Waved Galápagos Albatross, may be seen from April to December.
