Aboard a fast yacht, we sail to Puerto Villamil. We will visit the Giant Tortoise Breeding Center where we meet tortoises of different ages, and learn about the captive breeding and rearing program which ensures the species’ sustainable repopulation on the island.
Afterwards we will visit the lagoon of pink flamingos feeding in the wild along with lapwings, grebes and other varieties of birds.
We will enjoy a delicious seafood lunch in a restaurant in the port.
We will board a small boat and sail 10 minutes to Tintoreras Islet. A colony of Galapagos penguins will greet us. We will walk along a trail and observe the marine iguanas along the way. Depending on the season, you can see them building their nests. This is why it is very important not to leave the trail. We climb up a small cliff to observe groups of white-tipped sharks (tintoreras) resting in small arms of shallow sea, regulating their body temperature.
Snorkeling is stunning, swimming with sea turtles, white-tipped sharks and a variety of tropical fish.
