Discover the beautiful nature and fascinating history of Floreana Island on this day trip from Santa Cruz Island. Pirates, whalers and an intriguing post box... what are you waiting for?
Floreana Island Tour
On the day of your tour, you'll be picked up from your hotel on Santa Cruz Island and taken to Puerto Ayora, where a boat will be waiting. We'll cruise over to Floreana Island, one of the few inhabited Galapagos Islands.
Floreana Island is home to a long and fascinating history, with the stories of whalers, pirates and a family who decided to live here intermingled in legends which hide around every corner of the isle. Ready to discover them?
We'll get to visit the most important places of interest on Floreana, like Pirate's Cave. This cave served as a refuge for the English and French pirates who came here to loot Spanish ships. We'll hear all about the history of the whalers who visited the island as we approach Post Office Bay... now what's a post box doing here in the middle of the bay?
You'll also get to explore the Scalesia forest to discover these trees endemic to the Galapagos Islands and to see Galapagos turtles in their natural habitat. An unforgettable experience!
Later, we'll learn all about a family who came to live on Floreana Island to experience a solitary way of life, and we'll visit the house where they settled and see an unusual rock carving, apparently created by this family.
The final stop on our day trip will be Black Beach, the perfect place to snorkel or simply to relax on this beautiful island. At the end of the day, we'll return to Puerto Ayora.
