Galapagos: La Pinta | 5 days North
This is an exciting 5 day itinerary on board the luxurious La Pinta yacht, which offers some of the largest cabins of any Galapagos vessels. Enjoy the gourmet meals and the ample deck space with only 48 other guests.
Your journey starts on Santa Cruz with a visit to the highlands and your first encounter with giant Galapagos tortoises. During this cruise you will visit the Chinese Hat, or Sombrero Chino, once you see the shape of the island you will understand where the name came from. There will be time to explore the different islands on foot, by dinghy, kayak or glass bottom boat. Encounter sea lions, marine iguanas, blue footed boobies, the magnificent frigate birds and with a bit of luck some Galapagos penguins. Get your camera ready for the spectacular Pinnacle Rock near Bartolome Island. The large bird nesting sites on Genovesa Island will be one of your highlights, where you will be lucky to see red-footed boobies and also Nazca bobbies among many other bird colonies.
With lots of photos and fantastic memories your adventure will come to an end in Baltra.
