Imagine a magical world of soaring frigate birds, lumbering tortoises, frolicking sea lions and sleek sharks.
Imagine cruising through cerulean waters on a luxurious, intimate yacht with your significant other, family or friends. Picture a deluxe cabin, spacious and inviting as warm sea breezes blow in gently from the balcony. The staff is courteous and professional, the naturalist guide is knowledgeable and friendly and the chef somehow sends one masterpiece after another out of the kitchen. This is your dream. This is the Galapagos Endemic.

It is not only the newest catamaran cruiser in the Enchanted Islands but also the most luxurious. The outer design is sleek, streamlined and attractive: the gentle curves of the hull and decks make the Endemic looks like part of the unique Galapagos ecosystem.

3-Night Cruise
Thursday – Sunday

Day 1

Thursday AM Visit: Baltra Island Airport.
Meet upon arrival to Baltra airport and transfer to the Galapagos Endemic catamaran.
Thursday: PM Visit: Bartolomé/Bartholomew Island.
Bartholomew is a small but scenic island, home to the iconic, pointy Pinnacle Rock. There are only two visitor areas on Bartholomew: a series of wooden steps leading to a scenic overlook and a small, sandy beach. There’s not a lot of wildlife on the way up the steps – look for lava lizards – but the view is spectacular. The small beach is one of the better snorkeling spots in the Galapagos, as there is a small penguin colony there and the penguins enjoy darting around snorkelers underwater. You can also see any number of fish and rays, and maybe even a shark or two if you’re lucky.

Day 2

Friday: AM Visit: Corona del Diablo/Devil’s Crown, off of Floreana Island.
The Devil’s Crown is a jagged set of rocks in a roughly circular shape off of Floreana Island: they are the final remnants of an ancient volcanic crater mostly eroded over the ages. It’s a marvelous snorkeling spot: the deep water on one side is good for seeing large rays, sharks and other spectacular large marine life, while the interior of the ‘crown’ is calm and often full of playful sea lions.

Friday AM Visit: Punta Cormorant/Cormorant Point, Floreana Island.
Cormorant Point features two beaches and a flamingo lagoon, but oddly enough, no cormorants (which are found mostly in the western islands of Fernandina and Isabela). Cormorant point is sort of like two sites in one: the landing site is a green sandy beach popular with sea lions, but a short walk takes you to the other side of the point and a gorgeous white sand beach. You can wade in up to your ankles, but don’t go any deeper: the waters of this beach are full of stingrays! On most days, you can see dozens of them just off the beach.

Friday: PM Visit: Mirador de la Baronesa/The Baroness’ Overlook, Floreana Island.
From a sandy beach, a short trail leads to the Baroness’ overlook, where visitors will get a good view of the Floreana coastline. Ask your guide for the story of the “Baroness of the Galapagos.” It’s a murder mystery which is unsolved to this day! After a visit to the overlook, there will be the opportunity to take a panga ride along the coast or take out one of the sea kayaks.

Friday: PM Visit: Bahía Post Office/Post Office Bay, Floreana Island.
Back in the day, whalers and other ships roamed the seas, often for years at a time. For the men who worked these ships, communication with home was very difficult and they would leave letters in certain places around the globe: one such drop off was a barrel at what came to be known as “Post Office Bay.” The barrel is still there: leave your own letter for a loved one! The site also features a nice sandy beach perfect for relaxing or snorkeling.

Day 3

Saturday AM Visit: Sombrero Chino/Chinese Hat, off Santiago (James) Island.
Chinese Hat, named for its distinctive conical shape, is a visitor site memorable for geology and animal life. The island is known for lava tubes and pillow formations, meaning that it likely was formed underwater and later was pushed to the surface by geological forces. Besides being an informative case study in volcanic geology, Chinese Hat is home to sea lions, penguins and Sally Lightfoot Crabs. The hike is followed by panga rides, snorkeling and, kayaking.

Saturday: PM Visit: Seymour Norte/North Seymour Island.
Another visitor favorite, North Seymour has something for everyone. The Frigate Birds and Blue-Footed Boobys nest right next to the rocky trail, allowing for spectacular photographs. The island is home to a booming population of Land Iguanas, often seen contentedly munching on cactus pads. There are usually dozens of sea lions near the landing site and along the beach. As if that’s not enough, the snorkeling is excellent!

Day 4

Sunday: AM visit: Caleta Tortuga Negra/Black Turtle Cove, Santa Cruz Island.
Black Turtle Cove is a lagoon on Santa Cruz Island. It is a maze of mangroves, and pangas are forced to paddle so that their motors do not disturb the wildlife there. You never know what you’ll see in Black Turtle Cove: there might be sharks, sea turtles, herons or even a school of Golden Rays gently gliding through the water. There is no swimming or snorkeling permitted in Black Turtle Cove.
Transfer from the M/C Endemic to Baltra airport for your return flight to mainland Ecuador. Assistance and farewell at the airport.

As if that’s not enough, the snorkeling is excellent!
