Finch Bay Hotel 3-Night Itinerary B

The 4-day/3-nights "Finch Bay Sea" Tour: This introduction to the enchanted Galapagos Islands can be experienced by a number of activities, including a full-day cruise to a nearby island, land exploring, and by simply relaxing and enjoying the hotel’s privacy, natural surroundings, swimming pool, fine dining and superb service. On the day-cruise, you will board the hotel’s own yacht on a short voyage to a stunning nearby island (either the wildlife-rich North Seymour Island, iconic Bartolome, the wild and rugged South Plaza Island, or beautiful Santa Fe Island). Led by experienced naturalist guides and provided with excellent service, this astonishing sea and land adventure will remain etched in your memory forever. When not on your cruise, you may prefer to go on a land excursion or pursue your favorite outdoor activities around the hotel on Santa Cruz Island. Here, you can take part in sports such as kayaking, scuba diving, biking, and hiking. Then too, you may want to just lie back on the pool’s sun deck and enjoy the incredible hospitality, the Cordon Bleu cuisine and the beachfront view from your hammock. Whatever way ever you choose to enjoy this remarkable archipelago, it's up to your particular tastes and preferences.

Detailed Itinerary

Day 1
Flight from the Mainland (from Quito or Guayaquil) – Arrival in the Galapagos (Baltra Island Airport) – Shared Transfer to the Finch Bay Hotel

In the morning, you will fly from Quito or Guayaquil (on the Ecuadorian mainland) to Baltra Island, the main point of entrance to this natural paradise and situated in the heart of the Galapagos archipelago. Upon your arrival at the airport, you will need to pay the national park entry fee, which goes to protecting both the Galapagos National Park and Marine Reserve. A member of the Finch Bay/Surtrek team will then welcome you and accompany you to the Finch Bay Hotel. After checking in and unpacking, you will find that the stunning pool deck and hammocks throughout the property are especially great places to relax and unwind before enjoying your Cordon Bleu dinner. Alternatively, you may choose to spend time visiting El Manzanillo Reserve in the highlands to see Giant Galapagos tortoises roaming free and grazing on the lush vegetation in their natural habitat; later, you can visit an organic farm where coffee, sugar cane and cocoa are grown.

Today you will have your choice of going on your one (1) full-day cruise on board the hotel's Sea Lion yacht, OR spending the day exploring and/or relaxing on Santa Cruz Island.

Should you choose to go on a day-cruise, you will take a yacht excursion to a nearby island (North Seymour, Bartolome, South Plaza or Santa Fe Island).

“The trip was excellent from beginning to end. The Isabella II was a fine ship and the crew and guides were all of the highest quality. I would recommend them to others. For us, the ship was the perfect size – not too small and not too large.”Walter Squire
