Galapagos: Archipel II I 5 day Southern
Experience a memorable 5 days in the Galapagos, taking a southeastern route to visit some of the oldest islands in the Galapagos. This has given evolution time to create unique subspecies. Begin in Santa Cruz looking out for the Galapagos Giant tortoise in the wild, before cruising south to Floreana to explore the beaches and coves of this volcanic island, sea lions will greet you on the beach, stringrays bury themselves in the sand ready to give you a friendly tickle, and flamingos pose for your photos. Don't forget to bring a postcard to "send" from Post Office Bay. The white sands on Espanola are stunning, and Suarez Point offers dramatic cliff landscapes and is paradise for nature and birdlovers alike. Pitt Point is the eastern most point of the Galapagos and home to all three species of boobies: blue-footed, red-footed and Nazca booby; as well as both species of frigate bird (great and magnificent). There is more swimming, wildlife and exploring to be made on San Cristóbal, and the lovely Archipel II to relax on in between all the excursions.
