In your last day you can either choose a FREE DAY or ask us to arrange for a guided visit to Charles Darwin Station in the morning and Tortuga Bay in the afternoon or a navigable tour, for an extra cost.

Option 1: In the Charles Darwin Research Station you will find a large variety of tortoise’s species coming from each island on the archipelago. You can also listen about the ongoing conservation efforts directed at preserving the Giant Tortoises, as well as the environment of the archipelago as a whole.

The afternoon hike to Tortuga Bay beach could be the perfect ending to your trip. Abundant wildlife inhabits the place and the view is astounding as it is considered one of the most beautiful beaches in Galapagos.

Option 2: A full-day navigable tour. The destination can be Santa Fe, South Plazas, North Seymour or Bartolomé Island. The activities will include hiking, snorkeling, swimming and breathtaking sightseeing. After land and sea excursions, we will return back to the hotel in Santa Cruz.

NOTE: If you choose either Option 1 or 2, PLEASE let us know before booking your trip. This way we can arrange and check availability in order to arrange your itinerary in the best way possible.
