Your tour begins with pickup from your hotel on Santa Cruz Island in time for a 6.30am departure. After a short transfer to the port at Puerto Ayora, meet your guide and small group of up to 10 people and hop aboard for the boat ride to Isabela Island.
Enjoy the views from deck on the around 2-hour 15-minute cruise, then head ashore to take in the island’s many highlights. Explore the vast wetlands of Los Humedales, visit the Isabela Tortoise Breeding Center to see the gigantic Galapagos tortoises, and pay a visit to the poignant Wall of Tears, built by post-WWII prisoners.
Continue to Concha Perla Beach, where you’ll have chance to spot exotic wildlife including iguanas, Galapagos sea turtles, and penguins. You can also dive in to swim and snorkel amid the colorful corals and schools of tropical fish.
Finish your island tour with a delicious lunch, before setting sail on the return journey. Back in Santa Cruz, your tour ends in Puerto Ayora.
