On this island you can 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 frigates birds in their nests, during certain seasons you can see land iguanas.
On the other side of the island, and while the waves crash against the rocks, you can appreciate also the mischievous sea lions playing and surfing in the sea. There is a circular path for visitors approximately, 2 km long that crosses the interior of the island and leads to explore the rocky coast. This trail takes you through some of the largest colonies of sea birds of the Galapagos Islands.
During this trip you will have the opportunity to see the nesting sites of the fascinating blue-footed bobbies and colorful frigates. After lunch, you can snorkel, swim or take a sunbath for around 45 minutes on las Bachas Beach or Mosquera Islet.

Summary of The Day: At 6:00am we'll transfer to Itabaca Channel and travel by yacht to Bartolome Island. Breakfast is included and will be served on the boat.
Bartolome Island has some of the most beautiful landscapes throughout the archipelago. The most famous rock formation here is the Pinnacle Rock, which resembles an obelisk raised to the edge of the ocean.
Upon arrival, we are presented with a wood stairway climb of 600 meters in length, so we suggest wearing comfortable shoes. Once we reach the Summit (about 30 to 40 minutes), we are rewarded with a spectacular view of the landscape with two beautiful bays. The fascinating formations of lava and volcanic cones give this area an out-of-this-world aura, and will make you feel as if you were walking on the moon.
Bartolome Island is the perfect place to observe the Galapagos penguins swimming in these tropical waters. On the south part of the island you can also find marine turtles, stingrays and Galapagos sharks, among other unique marine species.

This is one of the most active volcanoes in Galapagos. Boasting the second largest volcanic caldera in the world after Yellowstone National Park, with 6 miles in diameter and 300 ft deep, it is definitely a must-have stop.
Continuing with our volcanic trip, we reach Volcano Chico, where we can see lava tubes winding their way across the top of the landscape. The colors of the rocks near the crater walls are a sight to behold.
Later in the afternoon, we have the opportunity to practice snorkeling at Concha de Perla. This is the perfect spot for everyone who loves swimming or snorkeling. Concha de Persla is a shallow, calm bay with crystal clear water that allows you to enjoy the fascinating marine life of Galapagos, including a chance to swim with sea lions and penguins.
