Galapagos: Santa Cruz II | 5 days Western
Have a journey to remember with M/V Santa Cruz II that offers comfortable accommodation for up to 90 passengers. Start your cruise on Santa Cruz Island and visit Dragon Hill home to the Galapagos land iguanas. From there continue to Isabela Island, where you can go on a snorkelling adventure at Punta Vicente Roca. Take pictures of unique sea bird colonies, blue-footed boobies and hopefully you will spot a Galapagos penguin. In the afternoon visit Fernandina Island, this is the perfect place to observe marine iguanas. Cruise overnight and arrive in the morning on Santa Cruz and visit the Charles Darwin Research Station and the tortoise breeding program. There will be time to visit the cooler highlands of the island. The Island of Floreana is the final stop where you can stop at post office bay - make sure you write a postcard to send a message home from the Galapagos!
Enjoy walking, snorkelling, kayaking and glass bottom boat excursions, plus great food onboard.

"Punta Espinoza on Fernandina Island is the best place to see hundreds of marine iguanas. When I visited there were so many you almost tripped over them, they blend perfectly into the natural habitat!" Pia, Team Viva
