    AM: This group of jagged rocky islets is just off the coast of Puerto Villamil and forms one of the most stereotypical sites of the Galapagos.
    PM: The wetlands and brackish lagoons of Isabela are among the best places to spot aquatic, wading, and shore birds. In the Arnaldo Tupiza Breeding Centre, you can see hundreds of giant Galapagos tortoises of all sizes (the vulnerable hatchlings are not gigantic at all, even smaller than the size of your hand)!

  • DAY 2 WEDNESDAY - DARWIN BAY (GENOVESA) - PRINCE PHILIP STEPS (GENOVESA)
    Rebecca Adventure Travel Prince-Philips-steps
    AM: As one of the outer islands and most exclusive places on the Galapagos, Genovesa is well worth last night’s longer navigation. This compact site in the heart of its flooded crater shows the extremely varied coastal ecosystems of the Galapagos in miniature; nearly too much for a single day.
    PM: Not only because of its historical English name (Tower) Genovesa has a royal touch. Follow in the footsteps of Prince Philip – Galapagos lover for many years – and visit this favorite birding spot with the largest breeding colonies of red-footed and Nazca boobies, and look for the remarkable short-eared owl that hunts on foot!

    Rebecca Adventure Travel Sullivan-Bay
    AM: Sullivan Bay is incomparable to any other visitor’s site; setting foot at the recently solidified lava flow is like landing on the moon!
