Itinerary



Itinerary in brief:

  • 3 nights on board the M/Y Passion            

Day 1: Arrive in the Galapagos    

When you land at Baltra airport this morning, you’ll be greeted by your guide and the crew of the M/Y Passion. After a short boat transfer to neighbouring Santa Cruz Island, you will be driven to a local restaurant for lunch and then onto the Charles Darwin research station. You’ll have some time to explore the charming Puerto Ayora at your own leisure and, in the afternoon, you will board your luxury cruise. After a welcome drink and meeting with the captain, you’ll be served a delicious al fresco dinner at the sun sets over the islands.


Days 2 & 3: Eastern Galapagos Islands aboard the M/Y Passion 

During you’ll cruise, you’ll visit the highlights of the Eastern Galapagos Islands, including South Plaza, Santa Fe and Española. You’ll spend time with colourful land iguanas, hang out with sea lions, spot giant tortoises and marvel at the geologic formations of Española’s coastline. You will also get to snorkel with some of the world’s most majestic sea creatures, including turtles, rays and whale sharks. As you sail, your expert guide will explain the history and wildlife of these magical islands, while your chef will treat you to delicious meals throughout. This itinerary is the shortest option the M/Y Passion offers, but we can offer 5 and 8 days itineraries aboard the same yacht. Feel free to discuss these ideas with your consultant.


Day 4: Departure  

This morning is time to say goodbye to the natural paradise of the Galapagos Islands. After breakfast, the crew will take you to Baltra airport where you will catch your onward flight.

Info

There isn’t a bad time to visit the Galapagos, so you can enjoy this trip at any of the year. Nonetheless, there are two seasons in the Galapagos. The dry season runs from June to December with clearer, sunny skies but colder waters. The wet season stretches from January to May, with higher chances of rain and cloudier skies, but much warmer waters that make for a more comfortable snorkelling experience.

This itinerary includes a complimentary pre-cruise night with breakfast at the famous Casa Gangotena Hotel in Quito if your flight itinerary includes a stopover in the capital before flying to Galapagos. The M/Y Passion sets sail on a handful of different Galapagos cruises, so if you would like to book a longer sailing trip, just talk to your consultant.
