Tour Start and Meeting with the Naturalist Guide

All passengers are requested to arrive at the agency at 7:30 in the morning. At 8:00, we will head to the Pier, where your naturalist guide awaits, and you’ll board the boat.

Exploration in the Pirate Caves on Floreana Island

The first stop takes us to the pirate caves on Floreana Island. A wet landing marks the beginning of a guided walk. The naturalist guide will share fascinating details about the site’s history, as well as its rich flora and fauna.

Navigation to the ENDERBY Site and Exciting Snorkeling

Next, we will return to the boat to sail to the second site, known as ENDERBY. There, you’ll enjoy an exciting snorkeling session of approximately 45 minutes. Depending on ocean conditions and the season, you may spot hammerhead sharks, Galápagos sharks, and whale sharks. Afterward, embark on a hands-on fishing activity. If the fishing succeed, the catch will be served as a snack during the sail to Punta Cormorán, where passengers can indulge in snacks, fruits, and beverages.

Experiential Fishing and Journey to Punta Cormorant

At Punta Cormorán, passengers will experience another wet landing and take a walk in the area known as La Olaya, where they can observe flamingos in their natural habitat. Then, return to the boat for lunch and participate in the final hands-on fishing activity while starting the navigation.
