Arrival at San Cristóbal Airport and transfer in. You will have to pay your Galapagos National Park entrance fee and your luggage will be inspected. Santa Cruz offers excellent opportunities for viewing wild Galapagos giant tortoises, roaming through pastures in the agricultural zone and in the transition zone of adjacent El Chato Tortoise Reserve. These are without any doubt the most emblematic representatives of the archipelago.
This group of jagged rocky islets just out off the coast of Puerto Villamil forms one of the most stereotypical sites of the Galapagos. The wetlands and brackish lagoons of Isabela are among the best places to spot aquatic, wading and shore birds.
Fresh, promising greens of pioneer vegetation contrast strongly with the dead, pitch-black lava flow that once reached the ocean at Moreno Point. At the remote Elizabeth Bay you will enjoy the best dinghy-ride in the Galapagos, which combines a visit to the Marielas Islets in the mouth of the bay, with the highest mangles in its innermost heart.
Tagus Cove is a historical anchorage at the northern entrance of Bolivar Channel (between Isabela and Fernandina). Westernmost Fernandina harbours one of the world’s most virgin, untouched ecosystems, and is another crown jewel of the Galapagos.
Strolling along its coastline, the blinding white Bachas Beach appears full of natural life. It is one of the most important breeding sites for Pacific green turtles. Assisted by the naturalist guide and some crew members, the dinghy will bring you and your luggage to Baltra, where we will take the airport shuttle. Your guide will accompany you to the check-in counters in the departure hall. You will return home with stunning pictures and unforgettable lifelong memories!

Stable & wide

Meet the two pioneers of the Galapagos: Archipel I & II! These motor catamarans arrived in 2002, and offer stable double hulls, wide decks and large social areas, all of which are near to each other.

Our cosy accommodation

Each catamaran offers eight cabins above the waterline, with two sea-view windows. They also include clean private facilities, hot/cold water, low beds, air-conditioning, and storage space for a comfortable stay.

Spacious social areas

The Archipels have ample social areas that will complement a comfortable stay. Shared with a total of just 16 guests; the lounge, solarium, resting areas & 'Al Fresco' dining area are great choices for you to relax and enjoy the nature that surrounds you.

Greater safety on-board

Safety on-board (and during the programmed activities) is always our highest concern. We have therefore obtained the International Safety Management Certificate of the International Marine Organisation (IMO), carry proper security equipment, and put board regulations and safety instructions.
