Travel by air for approximately 1.5 hours from Guayaquil to reach the Galápagos Islands. Baltra Island, which played a crucial role during World War II, is the primary airport for tourists and colonists. Upon arriving at Baltra Airport, an English-speaking naturalist guide will be available to assist you. Take a 5-minute bus ride to the dock to board the yacht, where you will receive a warm welcome and a briefing.
After lunch, make a wet landing at Bachas Beach located on the north shore of Santa Cruz. This is one of the main nesting sites for sea turtles, and the clear waters are perfect for swimming and relaxation. Return to the yacht for dinner and a briefing on the following day's activities.
