Experience the Galapagos Singles Vacation Daily Itinerary

Galapagos Galapagos TurtleVacation Day 1: Arrive into Baltra, Ecuador - Santa Cruz Island
Plan to arrive into the Galapagos Islands this morning before 11:00am. Best Single Travel will help co-ordinate your air flights as you will need a flight to Ecuador and then a separate flight into Baltra (the Galapagos airport) Upon arrival you will be directed into the Galapagos immigration area.
Once everyone has arrived we will take a short bus drive to the Itabaca Channel and ferry to the Santa Cruz Island. From the harbor, we drive towards Puerto Ayora, riding through
the highlands. Observe the change in vegetation: from arid landscapes filled with cacti to the lush rainforest.

Over 200 scientists and volunteers are active in the conservation and research projects for the most famous resident of the Galápagos: the Giant Tortoise. Stroll around the impressive giant prickly-pear cactus forest or visit the baby turtles that are affectionately cared for until they can be repatriated. Learn about the tortoises’ different life stages: from incubation, hatching, and growth periods.  Dinner at a local restaurant


Vacation Day 2: Santa Cruz Island - Sail to Santa Fe
Galapagos Galapagos Sea LionsOur guide will pick us up from the hotel and take us to the dock of Puerto Ayora, where we will start our 2 hour sail to Santa Fe Island. Santa Fe Island is an almost central Island which has an incredible bay with turquoise waters, protected by a natural barrier of rocks and colonies of sea lions live and hawks can be seen flying. This island of Santa Fe is one of the oldest islands of the archipelago. Its age and isolation have allowed several endemic animals to evolve, including species of land iguana, rice rat and gecko. On the northern coast, we will visit Bahía Barrington, a small tranquil bay, where we can observe green sea turtles and spotted eagle Iguanarays cruise over the sandy bottom, brown pelicans and blue-footed boobies rest on the rocks.  Also, you can see Nazca boobies and magnificent frigate birds. Sea lions are the most obvious sight on Santa Fe Island, with 2 large colonies on the beaches and pups playing readily with snorkelers in the bay. Other underwater encounters can include marine iguanas, sea urchins and different species of fish.  Dinner at a local restaurant

This morning we transfer to Itabaca Channel, where will get on board our boat for a 1 hour sail to Seymour Island, a spectacular place to hike and enjoy the scenery. On the north-side of Seymour we will find unique plants such as: incense tree, cactus, sesuvium, escalecias and animals like: blue-footed boobies, gulls sitting on the edges of the cliffs and colorful frigates birds in their nests.
On the other side of the island, while the waves crash against the rocks, we can appreciate the mischievous sea lions playing and surfing. There is a circular path, approximately 1.25 miles long that crosses the interior of the island and leads us to the rocky coast. This trail takes us through some of the largest colonies of sea birds of the Galapagos Islands.
After lunch, we can snorkel, swim or sunbathe for around 45 minutes on either las Bachas Beach or Mosquera Islet (will know day of tour which).  Dinner at a local restaurant


Vacation Day 4: Santa Cruz Island - Sail to Bartolome Island
Galapagos Glapagos IslandWe get an early start today, have breakfast on board our boat as we travel to Bartolome Island. This Island has some of the most breathtaking panoramas and some of the most beautiful landscapes in the Galapagos. The island, famous for its Pinnacle Rock, an impressive lava structure that towers high above the water, was created by a volcano eruption. When the hot lava reached the sea it cooled down forming a stunning rock composed of thin layers. with  a variety of red, orange, green, and glistening black volcanic formations. For a stunning view of two beautiful bays and great views of the various lava formations, we will need to climb up a wooden staircase to the summit.

The Bartolome Island bay is an excellent place for swimming, Galápagos penguins are frequently seen, and a small cave behind Pinnacle Rock houses a breeding colony. As we walk along the crescent shaped pink and white sand beach, we will be tracing the footsteps of generations of green sea turtles who return each year to lay their eggs.  After our fun day, we head back to our hotel and then a local restaurant for dinner.
