DAY 8 – 10 GUAYAQUIL · GALAPAGOS ISLAND: BEGINNING OF YOUR CRUISE **
GALAPAGOS CRUISE ABOARD THE CORAL I & II OR THE GALAPAGOS LEGEND
Depart to the Galapagos in a 2:30-hour domestic flight arriving at Baltra or San Cristobal Airport. A representative of our cruise ship will welcome you, and then you will be transferred to the port to embark the vessel. Enjoy of a paradisiacal destination marked by its uniqueness which inspired Charles Darwin on his Theory of Evolution. Every day visit two new places, and wake up with the most idyllic landscapes, to later enjoy a buffet-style breakfast and time to get ready for the first excursion.
Every island and visitor site offer different geographical landscapes, fauna, and flora, but every corner of the archipelago will be filled with wildlife. From blue-footed boobies in their mating dance to lazy sea lions sunbathing by the shore, or fast-swimming penguins next to you in the snorkeling activities. All our guest will return to the ship for a varied lunch-buffet and free time to relax by the pool, sun terraces or Jacuzzi of our open decks while we arrive at our next visit.
Get on a dinghy ride with a Galapagos naturalist expert and learn more about geology, evolution, human history and biology of the next visitor site. Once again be amazed by the different terrain, exotic animals, and plants. Start with a hike through natural paths and have close encounters with the inhabitants of the area. Then, have some free time to enjoy the crystal clear waters of the beach, or choose to snorkel, kayaking or glass-bottom boat adventure.
Return on board to get changed and comfortable to later enjoy a-la-carte dinner in our acclaimed Lonesome George Restaurant which serves local and international specialties. One evening, we will surprise you with an al-fresco BBQ on the highest deck with great quality cuts, salads, and seafood for the ultimate Galapagos experience: dining under the sunset. After dinner, there will be a short but entertaining lecture about next day excursions followed by free time to relax or join an onboard activity. (B/L/D)
