Day 1 - Sunday
San Cristobal/Isla Lobos
Day 2 - Monday
Gardner Bay/Punta Suarez
On Bartolome, a lunar landscape stretches out in front of us. This young Island is inhospitable to most plants and animals. After a dry landing, climb 30 minutes up a steep slope to the summit of a once active volcano. Pause along the way to marvel at lava bombs, spatter cones and cinder cones. From the top, gaze out across a panoramic view including the famous "Pinnacle Rock", an eroded tuff cone. Down below, crystal clear water invites you to snorkel with schools of tropical fish. Penguins often swim in this area. At Cousins Rock, an intermediate dive, experience pelagic fish including white- tipped, hammerhead sharks, manta rays and eagle rays, An outstanding vertical wall showcases a profusion of black corals, sponges, reef fish and other invertebrates. Visibility varies. Maximum depth is 70 feet.
Day 3 - Tuesday
Floreana/ Champion Islet/ Enderby/ Devil’s Crown
Punta Vicente Roca, a wall dive, takes you in and out of a shallow, undersea cave. Here, encounter the Port Jackson or Horned shark, a species of bottom shark. The wall shows an incredible variety of sponges, corals and other invertebrates. Located in the western part of the archipelago, Punta Espinoza, Fernandina is the youngest and most pristine Island found in Galapagos. Hundreds of marine iguanas, the largest colony in Galapagos, bask in the sun along the rugged shoreline. Observe sea lion harems with resident bulls carefully guarding their territory. Flightless Cormorants build their nest on the point and Galapagos Hawk fly overhead. Evidence of recent lava flows formed by an active volcano stretch their way around the coast. Roca Redonda offers to advance divers an excellent opportunity to see hammerhead sharks, groupers, jacks, reef fish, triggerfish, whales and dolphins. The first dive includes some rolling swells. Maximum depth is 80 feet. The second dive, tank intermediate, also contains rolling swells. Maximum depth is 60 feet.
Day 4 - Wednesday
Cousins Islet/ Bartolome
At Wolf, the pinnacle, the reef and the south islet channel offer three different dive sites. The reef, the most consistent place to see hammerhead sharks, contains many warm water fish species found nowhere else in the islands.

Punta Espinoza/ Punta Vicente Roca
At Darwin’s Northern Arch, the northern most point of the two Islands, schools of hammerhead sharks and groups of
