The eastern-most island in the Galapagos, San Cristobal Island offers an array of animals and activities. An early morning walk with playful Sea Lions, Frigate Birds and Blue Footed Boobies, some snorkelling at Kicker Rock followed by a Panga Ride to Cerro Brujo where the volcanic formations are breathtaking.

Day 4 Isla Espanola

Due to its remote location, Isla Espanola has a large population of endemic birdlife and its coastline provides excellent opportunities to see reef sharks, turtles and tropical fish.

A walk along the trails of Punta Suarez offers us some magical panoramas.

The small sandy island of Mosquera is a picturesque spot to relax on the beach and watch Sally Lightfoot crabs looking for food among the rocks and tide pools.
