Visit South Plazas Island
Head to the beautiful South Plazas Island, known for its diverse range of flora that makes for a fascinating and vibrant landscape.
After breakfast, you will head back to the Itabaca Channel to continue or exploration of the Galapagos by boarding a yacht to South Plazas Island.
You will arrive to Punta Carrion, where you can snorkel in its beautiful waters, giving you the chance to see a variety of marine life, including perhaps some white-tipped reef sharks.
You will then continue to South Plazas Island, formed from an uplifted seabed, giving the islands a tilted table-top quality. Here you will have a dry landing and will be greeted by a colony of sea lions. As you make our way up the shore, you will come upon a carpet of scarlet sesuvium succulents - a beautiful groundcover in colour in contrast to the luminescent green prickly-pear cactus grove that grow along the shore. Keep an eye out for land iguanas that sit patiently below waiting for pears to drop.
Further along the trail, you will approach the southern cliff of the island for a beautiful view. From there, you will also be able to see nesting swallow-tailed gulls and several sea birds such as tropic birds, Nazca and blue footed boobies.
After, you will enjoy lunch on the yacht with these amazing island views before returning to your accommodation in Santa Cruz.
