Galapagos: Santa Cruz II | 7 days Eastern
Spend a fabulous week in the Galapagos Islands onboard the comfortable Santa Cruz II. This vessel has plenty of space and allows you to take excursions in small groups – average just 11 guests per guide!
Check out Mosquera Islet with its sea lions and enjoy the soft white sandy beach, learn about the Galapagos Giant tortoise on the island of San Cristobal. Get your camera ready at Punta Pitt where we will hope to spot the three species of boobies; Red, Nazca and blue-footed! Explore the Galapagos islands on foot, by dinghy, glass bottom boat and kayak, keeping an eye out for land & marine iguanas, large waved albatrosses, Galapagos Penguins and more! We take time to visit the famous Charles Darwin Research Station, and the much requested island of Espanola. Enjoy the beach, swim in the water, and be wowed by the wide array of marine life as you snorkel and kayak.
At the end of the day relax with Al fresco dining as you watch the sunset over the Galapagos lslands.

"North Seymour Island is one of the best places to watch the blue footed boobies do their courtship dance and see the two species of frigate birds. Get the camera ready for the magnificent frigate bird’s puffy red pouch!" Pia, Team Viva
Plan your visit during April to December so you will be able to see the Galapagos Albatross, the largest bird in the Galapagos, on Punta Suarez on Espanola Island.
