    Rebecca Adventure Travel Baltra Transportation Port

    Today, your Galapagos Island Hopping tour is starting. It is recommended to book flights with an early arrival time to Baltra Airport to make sure you can enjoy all of the activities of the tour.

    Option 1: Itinerary for flights arriving at Baltra before 12:00 PM
    At Baltra Airport, an English-speaking guide will pick you up to go to the port of Puerto Ayora, where you can enjoy your lunch. At around 03:00 PM, you will take a small public speedboat to Isabela Island. This can be a bumpy, wet ride.  After that, the driver will drop you off at your hotel.

    Option 2: Itinerary for flights arriving at Baltra after 12:00 PM
    If your flight arrives after 12:00 PM, you will stay on Santa Cruz Island on the first day, as the last speedboat to Isabela Island leaves around 03:00 PM. Note that no lunch is provided if you arrive after 03:00 PM. We’ll adjust the itinerary as needed, so feel free to reach out to us for any changes.
