Cruising The Galapagos On The Galapagos Legend

Day 1 - Arrive in Quito, Ecuador. Arrive in Quito, where you will be met by your Local Host.
Day 2 - Quito. Your included private city TOUR showcases the rich legacy left by the Incas and the Spaniards. See Independence Square, dominated by its formidable cathedral, San Francisco Plaza Church, and the BASILICA with its marvelous stained-glass windows. (B)
Day 3 - Quito - Baltra (Embarkation) - Cruising: Mosquera Islet. Fly to Baltra and transfer with your expert Naturalist to the Galapagos Legend for your 3-night CRUISE. Sail to MOSQUERA ISLET located between North Seymour and Baltra Islands. This flat, sandy island has a large colony of sea lions and is an excellent site for observing shorebirds such as herons and Lava Gulls. After visiting the island, take a dip in the waters and snorkel to see the abundant sea life. (B,L,D)
Day 4 - Cruising: South Plaza & Santa Fe Islands. Wake up at SOUTH PLAZA and take a walk through an impressive cactus forest populated with land and marine iguanas. Due to the proximity of land iguanas and marine iguanas here, this is the only place on Earth where you will find the Galapagos hybrid iguana. From the summit, be on the lookout for tropicbirds, Nazca and blue-footed boobies, and swallow-tailed gulls. After lunch on board, visit SANTA FÉ where you will be greeted by a large sea lion colony on its white-sand beach. Continue walking through an endemic cactus forest in search of the endemic Santa Fe land iguana, the largest in the islands and distinctively paler. This island is home to a number of endemic species including the Galapagos Hawk, Galapagos Snake, a variety of finches and one of the four species of Galapagos mockingbirds. Take a swim and snorkel here for a chance to see rays, tropical fish, sea lions and maybe even a Galapagos shark! (B,L,D)
Day 5 - Cruising: San Cristobal Island. Arrive at PITT ISLET on SAN CRISTOBAL where you will walk to the top of a volcanic tuff where you are awarded with several magnificent viewpoints. This is one of the few sites where the three booby species of the Galapagos can be seen together (Blue-footed, Red-footed and Nazca). You will also find the two species of frigate birds and a sea lion colony. It is excellent for dinghy rides where a good range of sea birds can be observed and snorkeling too. At CERRO BRUJO, visit a lagoon where migratory bird species can be seen: Black-necked Stilts, Ruddy Turnstones, Whimbrels, other sandpiper species and White-cheeked Pintails. Cerro Brujo offers beautiful views of Kicker Rock, the southern part of San Cristobal and the adjacent coast. Your visit ends with time to swim with the sea lions and other marine life. (B,L,D)
Day 6 - Cruising: San Cristobal (Disembarkation) - Guayaquil. After breakfast, disembark in Puerto Baquerizo Moreno and visit the GIANT TORTOISE RESERVE on SAN CRISTOBAL. Learn about the National Park's conservation programs and breeding programs to protect the endangered tortoise species. Also visit the port village for a last chance at souvenirs before bidding farewell to the enchanted Galapagos Islands. Transfer to San Cristobal Airport and fly to Guayaquil, where the remainder of the day is at leisure. (B)
Day 7 - Guayaquil. Your vacation ends with breakfast this morning. (B)
