Day 1ARRIVE IN GALAPAGOS ISLANDS

M/V Galapagos Legend cruise ship on ocean

Depart mainland Ecuador to Baltra (2.5 hour flight). Passengers are greeted at the airport and transferred to the pier in order to board the M/V Galapagos Legend.

In the afternoon, a dry landing on Santa Cruz Island and short bus ride brings guests to the highlands to view the giant tortoise natural reserve. Guests are free to explore the grounds where the giant tortoises are often seen roaming through the pastures in the agricultural region. As you stroll through the forests full of ferns, plants, and epiphytes, listen carefully for heavy footsteps as the tortoises slowly move through the brush.

If you’d rather not visit the tortoises, opt for a ride into Black Turtle Cove, located on the north coast of Santa Cruz. Here, you can take a scenic boat ride exploring the sheltered mangrove cove, where sea turtles and other marine life swim in the calm waters.
