Archipell II

Motor Catamarans Archipel I & II cruise around the great outdoors of the breathtaking Galapagos Archipelago, where you will keep discovering one surprise after another! Every day we anchor at two selected visitor’s sites and organise at least two excursions.

You will observe nature from different perspectives with our balanced excursion programme, or even during your spare time.

Day 1

Monday (Arrival at Baltra Airport) A.M.

Arrival at Baltra Airport and transfer in.
You will have to pay your Galapagos National Park entrance fee and your luggage will be inspected.

Monday (North Seymour) P.M.

North Seymour is another highlight of your cruise. In the archipelago’s most extensive seabird breeding colony you can walk a very short distance from frigatebirds and blue-footed boobies.

Day 2

Tuesday (Bartolomé) A.M.

This tiny volcano islet is just recently born out of fire. Enter its wild romantic setting of spatter cones and craters, and see the most famous panorama of the Galapagos.

Tuesday (Espumilla Beach, Buccaneer Cove) P.M.

James Bay (Santiago) was where Charles Darwin spent most of his time whilst on the Galapagos. Espumilla Beach has been revived as an important breeding site for turtles.
At nearby Buccaneer Cove you have a great snorkelling opportunity in crystal-clear waters.

Day 3

Wednesday (Puerto Egas, Santiago) A.M.

Puerto Egas is a historical and favourite site on Santiago for wildlife lovers.
The highlight is the outstanding fur seal grottos at the beautiful sculptured coastline.

Wednesday (Rabida) P.M.

Upon landing on this remarkable red beach a large bachelor colony of Galapagos sea lions will usually welcome you.

Day 4

Thursday (Charles Darwin Research Station) A.M.

The most memorable part of the Charles Darwin Research Station will probably be the successful breeding centre and its celebrity ‘Lonesome George’.

Thursday (Transfer out to Baltra Airport) P.M.

Assisted by the naturalist guide and some crew members the dinghy will bring you and your luggage to Baltra, where we will take the airport shuttle. Your guide will accompany you to the check-in counters in the departure hall.
