Giant iguanas, sea lions and spectacular volcanic landscapes: discover the magic of Santa Cruz Island on this unforgettable boat cruise!

Santa Cruz Island Boat Tour

We'll pick you up from your hotel on Santa Cruz Island at your selected time and take you to La Lobería, a small islet just two miles away. Here, you'll have the opportunity to spot sea lions in their natural habitat, admiring the large number of the adorable creatures that inhabit the Galapagos Islands.

The next stop will be the Canal de Tiburones, or "Shark Channel". How do you think this rugged volcanic fissure got this name? You'll discover why as we visit this spectacular natural lava formation!

We'll then head to another channel, this time with a friendlier name: welcome to "Love Channel"! This fissure is the perfect place to take some beautiful photos for you to remember the view forever. Next, we'll make our way to Franklin Bay, where we'll find sea turtles, pelicans and herons.

Our boat trip will continue onwards, cruising through Las Grietas on a fifteen-minute ride between dramatic lava rocks. As we sail down the channel, we'll spot cacti, iguanas and numerous different bird species, including Darwin's finches.

Finally, we'll pay a visit to Los Perros Beach, where we'll see lots of crabs as well as the largest marine iguanas in the world. The boat tour will then come to an end in Puerto Ayora after a four hour cruise.
