After being picked at your hotel in Puerto Ayora, start your day trip with a 45 minutes scenic ride on an exclusive artisan fishing yacht to Santa Fe Island.

24 square meters Santa Fe Island also known as Barrington is located in the center of the Galapagos Archipelago, South West of Santa Cruz Island.

Do some bird watching from the cliffs of Santa Fe island. Observe swallow-tailed gulls, red-billed tropic birds and shear-waters petrels.

We will enter the Santa Fe Bay and disembark on its white-sand beautiful beach to see colonies of sea lions, blue footed boobies and marine iguanas. If waters are clear, we will be able to observe Tintoreras or Galapagos Sharks.

We will also spot sea turtles, stingrays and a wide fish diversity.

Continue to Playa Escondida, an hidden beach for snorkeling. Take in the sun and enjoy the views while amazing birds will fly down really close to the boat.

Playa Escondida is one of the best spots of Galapagos full of marine life such as eagle rays, golden rays and sea turtles. Swim just next to Galapagos sharks and a colony of sea lions in one meter-depth waters. This a an unforgettable experience!

We will have a lunch break on the yacht and will return to Puerto Ayora in the afternoon.
