Board a small motor yacht, Sea Finch, for a trip to a neighbouring island. The Sea Finch, which carries up to 16 guests, has outdoor seating areas and an air-conditioned dining lounge. Where you will go depends on the day of the week, but will be one or two of the following islands:
Mon & Thu - North Seymour and Bachas beach
North Seymour is a tiny, boulder-strewn island home to large colonies of seabirds, including frigate birds and blue-footed boobies, and there is always a courting, mating or nesting ritual to see. Other inhabitants of this wildlife-rich Island include sea-lions, marine iguanas, lava lizards and Galápagos snakes. At Las Bachas beach the stretch of white sand is a major egg-laying site for sea turtles. Land iguanas dot the shoreline and flamingos feed in the lagoon behind the beach.
Tue & Fri - South Plaza Island
South Plaza is one of the smallest islands in the archipelago and home to a large colony of sea-lions and a small cactus forest populated by land iguanas. Swallow-tailed gulls, tropicbirds and shearwaters nest along the cliff edge.
Wed - Santa Fé Island
Santa Fé may well be the oldest island in the Galápagos and some of the best snorkelling and swimming is here. The crystal clear waters abound with sea lions, Galápagos white-tipped shark and sea turtles.
Sat & Sun - Bartolome and (Sat) Sullivan Bay
The small island of Bartolomé is just off Sullivan Bay. A viewpoint atop the summit, accessible via a wooden walkway, offers views of Santiago Island and Sullivan bay to the west and the island's strange lava 'moonscape' and Pinnacle Rock far below. On the east coast is Sullivan Bay, where solidified black lava flow stretches to the sea; there is a white sand beach with excellent opportunities for swimming and snorkelling.
