Next, your Galapagos adventure begins as you board a short flight from Quito to to Baltra Island. Transferring to the harbour, you’ll board the luxury yacht La Pinta
, your home for the next six nights. You and your family will enjoy a brilliant cruise on a western route through the Galapagos Islands, encompassing the unique volcanic landscapes and distinctive wildlife for which this region is famous.
On Fernandina you’ll spot a vast array of bird life, including hawks, flightless cormorants and blue-footed boobies, before continuing to Isabela, where at Urbina Bay you can enjoy an opportunity to swim with adorable Galapagos penguins. Children will also love visiting Tagus Cove on Isabela, a former hideaway for pirates and smugglers. On Santa Cruz, you’ll meet the iconic giant tortoise in the wild in the highlands, while on Floreana you’ll have the chance to snorkel (or take a glass-bottomed boat ride) with sea turtles, spotted eagle rays, and sea lions.
Throughout the cruise, you’ll be very well looked after aboard the luxurious La Pinta, which has comfortable guest facilities as well as expert guides who will ensure you and your family have a fun, safe and educational experience. Children in particular are well catered for with the Pirates Aboard programme of fun and educational activities.
