Yacht La Pinta 13th to 20th January 2017Our visit to Isabela Island begins early in the morning. We are aboard Yacht la Pinta. Traveling from Seymour Island to Punta Vicente Roca (Isabela Island), took us almost 10 hours of navigation. This visitor site is known for hosting colonies of Galapagos fur seals, the nesting sites of Nazca boobies, not to mention flightless cormorants, penguins, and marine iguanas. Read More

Daniel Moreano, Expedition Leader 6th January to 9th January 2017On board the Yacht La Pinta today we visit Española Island. It is considered one of the oldest islands of the Galapagos archipelago. This island is near sea level, and that is why Española Island is dry and arid. On this island it’s very common to find a high level of endemicity present. This means that much of its flora and fauna is unique to the Española Island; this means that there is flora and fauna that cannot be found anywhere else in the world. Read More
Our adventure began on Baltra Island which is located close to the island of Santa Cruz. We arrived at Punta Vicente Roca, where we took our first panga ride to explore along the coast. We searched for animals: penguins, boobies, and pelicans that are easy to find in their nesting places. A memorable experience in Galapagos was about to begin. Read More
We would like to thank you very much for organizing our recent holiday in Quito, the Galapagos and Peru. Everything worked out perfectly and we had a wonderful time – quite beyond our expectations. We loved your country! Yacht La Pinta is indeed a beautiful boat and we can highly recommend her. The naturalists were all good, particularly the expedition leader, Vanessa, who organized all activities with skill and good humour. (We have already received the postcard which we posted in Post Office Bay!) The food was excellent and everyone was friendly and helpful.
