Day 2:

 (Itinerary A)

Meals Included: Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner

Accommodation: Eric or Letty Yacht

We arrive to Cerro Brujo, a breathtaking white coral beach, considered one of the most spectacular in Galapagos and perfect for a peaceful walk with expansive views and good bird watching. We have an opportunity to snorkel or kayak from the beach or swim with sea lions as well as a Zodiac ride. During lunch, we cruise toward the northeastern tip of SAN CRISTOBAL to Punta Pitt, a tuff formation that serves as a nesting site for many sea birds including all three types of boobies: Blue footed, Nazca and Red-footed boobies, both Frigate species, swallow-tailed gulls, Storm petrels and a colony of sea lions.  Punta Pitt is considered to be a first class site for birds and on par with Genovesa (Tower) Island.  We return to the yacht for a briefing followed by dinner.

 (Itinerary B)

We spend the entire day on TOWER (Genovesa), considered to be one of the most spectacular Islands in Galapagos for bird species. We have a wet-landing on Darwin Bay, a coral sand beach where Swallow-tailed and Lava gulls gather near the tide pools.  Enter a forest of Optuntia cactus and mangroves where colonies of Great Frigate birds nest. The males inflate their red-throated pouches to attract females as they fly overhead.  The trail leads through a rich inter tidal zone where we find a wide diversity of wildlife.

After lunch, we have a dry landing at Prince Philip’s Steps.  Red-footed boobies nest here in Palo Santo trees and Nazca Boobies nest near the trail.  In an open lava field, we find Storm Petrels in large numbers.  If you are lucky, we will see the elusive Short-eared owl.  Chose to have a picnic lunch on deck or dine inside. Look for the beautiful Red-billed Tropic bird found in the crevices along the cliff by kayak or Zodiac.  You can choose to swim or snorkel from the beach with sea lions in these northern warmer waters or for those with experience, we offer snorkeling in deeper water.  Return to the yacht for briefing and dinner before we cross the equator.

Day 3:

(Itinerary A)

Meals Included: Lunch and Dinner

Accommodation: Eric or Letty Yacht

We disembark at Punta Suarez, ESPANOLA (Hood), where we witness the highest rate of endemic species in Galapagos. Sea lions noisily green us as we land on their beach.  Curious Hood mockingbirds peck at our shoelaces.  From April to December, the waved albatross, found only on Espanola, perform their wild mating ritual.  Colonies of blue-footed boobies engage in “sky-pointing” to show off for potential mates. Nazca boobies busily care for their young.  Stunning swallow-tailed gulls are the only nocturnal gulls in the world and fish at night. Red-billed tropicbirds take shelter under the cliffs.  We also find Darwin’s Finches, Galapagos Doves and Galapagos Hawks.  Observe a unique specie of marine iguana identified with traces of red and green colorings. Colorful sally light-foot crabs crawl along the shoreline near to the famous "blow hole".

After lunch we have a wet landing on Gardner Bay, ESPANOLA (Hood), walk along seemingly endless stretch of this white sandy beach where you’ll find large colonies of sea lions.  There is no trail to follow so this is a chance to explore or take a long walk. You may find a Galapagos Hawk, Darwin’s Finches or Hood Mockingbird.  Swim with sea lions right from the beach, explore the bay and islets by kayak or just relax on the beach. There’s an excellent snorkeling site off Gardner Islet with a colorful diversity of sea life near Tortuga Rock. Explore caves by Zodiac covered with invertebrates. We return to the yacht for a briefing followed by dinner.

(Itinerary B)

Today we visit Las Bachas, which is the Spanish translation for “barges”.  There is a long stretch of a soft white sand beach and interior lagoons where we find the Greater Flamingo.  There is also a wonderful chance to snorkel here from the beach.  At Black Turtle Cove aka Caleta Tortuga Negra we have a zodiac ride through a series of coves and inlets surrounded by mangroves.  Here you can view pairs of mating sea turtles (Sept to Feb), white-tipped reef sharks and golden cow-nosed rays. Located on the northern tip of Santa Cruz is Cerro Dragon aka Dragon Hill.

Along the trail, we find Darwin Finches, Galapagos Flycatchers, Yellow Warblers, Audubon Shearwater and the endemic land iguanas, orange-yellow in color with large spines along their backs, were once part of the Darwin Station’s breeding program.  We find pink flamingos feeding in the salt-water lagoon as well as other lagoon birds; stilts, pintail ducks, sandpipers and more.  From the top of the hill, we enjoy a majestic view of the bay island covered in Opuntia cactus, Palo Santo and Cordia Lutea (muyuyu). After the briefing and dinner, we sail toward the western islands and cross the equator line for the second time.

Day 4:

(Itinerary A)

Meals Included: Lunch and Dinner

Accommodation: Eric or Letty Yacht

Step ashore at Punta Cormorant, FLOREANA (Charles), one of the few populated islands in the Galapagos.  Floreana presents a rich human history with mystery and intrigue.  Set foot on a green-sand beach alive with the sounds of sea lions. Follow a trail to a brackish lagoon, home of the pintail ducks, common stilts, and the Greater Flamingos, the pinkest in the world.  Wind your way past a rich variety of plants including Morning Glory, Cut Leaf Daisies, Palo Verdes and Scalesia leading to a beach with power soft sand. Sea turtles lay their eggs in the sand dunes and rays swim in the shallow water.

After the walk, we have an opportunity to snorkel at Devil’s Crown or Champion, a shallow sunken crater colonized by a brilliant array of colorful fish and corral.  Chose to have a picnic lunch on deck or dine inside.  After lunch, we visit Post office Bay, not the most scenic, but one of the most famous sites in Galapagos. Here is where a post barrel was erected and put into use in the late 18th Century by English whaling vessels.  You are invited to leave a post card and to pick up any mail from your home area.  We return to the yacht for a briefing followed by dinner.

(Itinerary B)

We have a semi-wet landing at Punta Espinoza, FERNANDINA, the youngest and most pristine Island in Galapagos with no introduced mammals. Recent lava flows formed by an active volcano stretch their way around the coast.   Hundreds of Marine Iguanas, the largest colony in Galapagos, bask in the sun along the rugged shoreline.  Observe sea lion harems with resident bulls carefully guarding their territory.  Flightless Cormorants build their nest on the point and Galapagos Hawks fly overhead.  There is a chance to snorkel here with sea turtles. After lunch, we cross the Bolivar Chanel where we often spot whales and dolphins riding the bow wave.

We disembark at Urbina Bay, ISABELA, where we find four miles of its coastal seabed, with marine life exposed due to a dramatic uplift in 1954 when the volcano erupted.  The marine remnants of coral skeletons, some of them waist-high, are visited after a wet landing on the beach.  Urbina is home to the very large and colorful Galapagos land iguanas, occasionally giant tortoises, Darwin Finches.  Brown Pelicans and Flightless Cormorants also nest here.  Giant Marine Iguanas are seen along the coast.  You may encounter penguins while snorkeling here.  At Punta Vicente Roca, a Zodiac ride offers an incredible view of the tuff walls, we can enter the wave-sculpted cave and find sea turtle who frequent this area. You may spot the dorsal fin of a Mola Mola, an odd looking giant sun fish. Return to the yacht for briefing and dinner.

Day 5:

(Itinerary A)

Meals Included: Lunch and Dinner

Accommodation: Eric or Letty Yacht

We travel by bus to the highlands of SANTA CRUZ Island.  The scenery gradually changes as we wind our way through all seven vegetation zones found in Galapagos.  Here, we visit the tortoise reserve at “Las Primicias” one of the private farms in the highlands where we encounter giant tortoises in their natural habitat.  We stop at "the tunnels", the largest lava tubes found in Galapagos.  We visit Los Gemelos, Spanish for “The Twins”, a pair of large pit craters where we find the bright red male vermilion flycatcher.  After lunch, we visit the Centro de Crianza Fausto Llerena (aka the Charles Darwin Research Station). See all three tortoise corals and the breeding center with new hatchlings and miniature tortoises not yet ready to be repatriated.  Scientists from all over the globe work at the station and conduct biological research from anatomy to zoology.  We stop at Van Straelen Hall where there are exhibits and a presentation.  Visitors can see the tortoise and land iguana corrals.

Puerto Ayora is the social heart of the islands with the largest population of 24,000. This evening you have the option to return to your yacht for a buffet dinner or remain in town on your own account.  Those who return to the yacht will be provided zodiacs to return to town to shop for souvenirs or stop in at an internet café. Zodiacs will be provided for your return to your yacht. 

(Itinerary B)

We visit Elizabeth Bay, ISABELA by zodiac starting with a visit to a secluded cove, lined with large red mangrove trees. Here, turtles, rays, and shore birds can be seen.  We motor to the rocky islets known as “Las Marielas”, where a colony of nesting Penguins, Flightless Cormorants and giant Marine Iguanas are found. Isabela was created when six volcanoes flowed together and formed the largest Island in Galapagos.  We have a dry landing at Tagus Cove, located on the western Island of ISABELA and a favorite anchorage for pirates and whalers over the centuries.  Old graffiti dating back to the 1800's is written on the rocky cliffs. Explore the Coves by Zodiac or kayak to find Galapagos Penguins, Boobies, Pelicans and other seabirds.

An uphill hike brings us to a salt-water lagoon, a scenic overlook with a spectacular view of the ocean, lava fields and volcanic formations.  An excellent snorkelling site is offered from the zodiac or take out a Kayak and explore the shoreline.  After dinner, a sky full of stars beckons to go on deck and observe the galaxy while crossing the equator for the last time.

Day 6:

(Itinerary A)

Meals Included: Lunch and Dinner

Accommodation: Eric or Letty Yacht

We disembark at Bartolome, where it seems like we are walking on the moon. This young Island is inhospitable to most plants and animals.  After a dry landing, climb 30 minutes up stairs leading to the summit of a once active volcano. Along the way, we pause to marvel at lava bombs, spatter cones and cinder cones.  From the top of the wooden stairs, we can gaze out across the island for a panoramic view of the island and "Pinnacle Rock", an eroded tuff cone.  Crystal clear water is an invitation to snorkel from the beach with schools of tropical fish and Galapagos Penguins or take a Zodiac ride.  After lunch, we visit Las Bachas, (Spanish for “barges”).  There is a long stretch of a soft white sand beach and interior lagoons where we find the Greater Flamingo.

There is also a wonderful chance to snorkel here from the beach. Located off the Southern tip of Santiago is Sombrero Chino aka Chinese Hat that owes its name to its shape. After a wet beach landing with sea lion colonies, the trail gives way to a primeval landscape of volcanic rubble including cracked lava formations and lava tubes. We find marine iguanas and pairs of oystercatchers. You can choose to snorkel at a site that is frequented by Galapagos penguins.  There is a briefing followed by dinner while we anchor in a calm protected area.

(Itinerary B)

We stroll along the shoreline at Puerto Egas, SANTIAGO (James) looking for octopus, starfish and other sea life caught in the tide pools.  At low tide, catch a glimpse of marine iguanas as they feed on exposed green algae. Watch for great blue herons, lava herons, American oystercatchers and yellow-crowned night herons. Our walk ends at the grottos, deep pools of clear water where we encounter fur sea lions once on the verge of extinction. Before returning to the yacht, there is a snorkeling opportunity. After lunch, take a seat on deck to view the dramatic landscape and dolphins that are often spotted here. We disembark on RABIDA (Jervis), located near James Island.

Rabida is considered the geographic center of Galapagos because this island sports the most diversified volcanic rocks. The dark red sand beach originated from the high content of iron in the volcanic stones.  While strolling along the trail, you may find marine iguanas, mocking birds, yellow warblers and several species of Darwin Finches leading to a salt water lagoon where Greater Flamingos migrate. After the walk, there is not-to-miss snorkeling option with a large colony of sea lions.  We return to the yacht for the Captain’s Farwell cocktail party and dinner as well as a special slide show presentation by your guides.

Day 7:

(Itinerary A)

Meals Included: Lunch and Dinner

Accommodation: Eric or Letty Yacht

Today we visit SOUTH PLAZA, a small geological uplift with tall cliffs offering spectacular views.  After a dry landing, the trail leads us through Prickly Pear or Opuntia and Sesuvium.  Here we can find the Galapagos Land Iguana feeding on the cactus leaves. Toward the end of the hill, we encounter a colony of bachelor sea lions. The dominant bulls are in various stages of recovery from battles lost over prime beach territory. We also find Swallow tailed gulls, Shearwaters and Red-billed tropicbirds who build their nests along the cliffs.

After lunch, we have a dry landing at North Seymour, a small geological uplift.  We follow a trail that leads us to Swallow-tailed gulls, Blue-footed boobies and the endemic Land iguanas. Visit the largest colony of Magnificent Frigate birds found in Galapagos. As we stroll along the beach, we find Marine Iguanas and sea lions body surf the northern swells.  We return to the yacht for the Captain’s Farwell cocktail party and dinner as well as a special slide show presentation by your guides.

(Itinerary B)

We travel by bus to the highlands of SANTA CRUZ Island.  The scenery gradually changes as we wind our way through all seven vegetation zones found in Galapagos.  Here, we visit the tortoise reserve at “Las Primicias” one of the private farms in the highlands where we encounter giant tortoises in their natural habitat.  We stop at "the tunnels", the largest lava tubes found in Galapagos.  Look out for the bright red male vermilion flycatcher.  After lunch, we will have our last briefing. Today we visit the Centro de Crianza Fausto Llerena aka Charles Darwin Research Station. See all three tortoise corals and the breeding center with new hatchlings and miniature tortoises not yet ready to be repatriated.

Scientists from all over the globe work at the station and conduct biological research from anatomy to zoology.  We stop at Van Straelen Hall where there are exhibits and a short video presentation.

The Dormitory is adequate, very clean and comfortable.
The food was very tasty, homely and had a good variety.
The activities catered to our satisfaction. They are provided with lots of patience. Every staff member is so friendly and they ensure that you enjoy the outing.
We were a family with people from all are groups. They took care of every individual needs. Our aged mother was made very comfortable, and they arranged a chair for her at every activity area.
We spent almost two days and one night. And we enjoyed every moment.
If one is looking for a good outing, this is the place. Total value for money. Above all it's the passion of the staff that makes them better than most places around Bangalore.

Just a couple of weeks ago, our team had been to ‘Eagles Unbound Adventure Camp’ for a team outing. It was one of the best outings that we have had and a lot of credit goes to Mr. Sunil Chris for being the perfect host. He and his team had ensured that every minute detail was taken into consideration and delivered as promised. The fact that the organizers were able to feel the pulse of our team and plan activities accordingly had built the right tone for team bonding. The hygiene and quality of food served was par excellence. I would recommend ‘Eagles Unbound’ to anyone planning a team outing.
