(Wet landing)

Bartolome is a small island located east of James Island. Bartolome is famous for its Pinnacle Rock, which is the distinctive characteristic of this island. It has two visitor sites. At the first one, you may swim and snorkel around Pinnacle Rock, where penguins are usually seen, or walk to the other side of the island to see sea turtles nesting (from January to March) and sharks swimming close to shore. (Dry landing) At the other site, you can climb to the highest point of the island. On your way up, you will encounter different formations of volcanic origin including spatter and tuff cones, lava flows and lava tubes. Once on the summit, there is a spectacular view of the surroundings. On this island we can also see sea lions, Galápagos penguins, pelicans, Galápagos hawks, turtles, sharks, pioneer plants and landscape. (Dry landing) (B,L,D)

Day 11 South Plaza - Santa Fe

South Plaza is one of the best spots in the archipelago to see land iguanas and swallow-tailed gulls, both indigenous to the Galápagos. There are iguana nests scattered all over the hill. Lying under the cactus trees, barely moving, the greenish-yellow iguanas wait for a juicy pad of the prickly pear cactus to fall.

The sheer cliffs of the southern shore are an unparalleled bird observatory and a perfect bird habitat: swallow-tailed gulls, yellow-tailed mullets, Audubon shearwaters, red-billed tropicbirds and brown pelicans. All of these birds use the rising air to glide effortlessly from one side to the other over the escarpment. One of the South Plazas main characteristics is also unusual vegetation comprised of Opuntia cactuses and sesuvium plants. (Dry landing)

Santa Fe has one of the most beautiful coves of all visitor sites in the Galápagos. It is a turquoise cove protected by a peninsula that extends from the shore by a row of rocks and by a small island that are aligned with it. This island was formed by an uplift that was a result of tectonic activity. On this island we will see land iguanas, sea turtles, Galápagos hawks, sea lions, and the forest of Opuntia Cactus. (Wet landing) (B,L,D)
