The Highlands of Santa Cruz
Day 1

The Highlands of Santa Cruz and the Charles Darwin Research Station

Isolated 500 miles west of Ecuador, but set at a confluence of currents fostering life, the Galápagos islands were made famous by Charles Darwin. The best way to see the islands is still Darwin’s way —living aboard a yacht.

Although a luxury yacht charter in the Galápagos or taking a private yacht comes with specific restrictions, with the government dictating specific routes, the volcanic archipelago still offers some of the most enchanting cruising waters in the world. With unique wildlife and numerous bucket list dives the Galápagos reward the adventurous with a once in a lifetime superyacht experience.

This suggested itinerary, based on the route followed by superyacht Integrity, explores the eastern side of the archipelago allowing to experience the best of what the Galápagos Islands have to offer.

Day 1 - The Highlands of Santa Cruz and the Charles Darwin Research Station

You can start your Galápagos adventure by visiting the highlands of the island of Santa Cruz. The lush vegetation attracts a host of exciting birds, including the yellow warbler and the woodpecker finch. The highlands are also famous for providing visitors with a rare opportunity to see Giant Galapagos tortoises roaming in their natural habitat.

In the afternoon you can visit the Charles Darwin Research Station and Galapagos National Park headquarters. This will allow you to understand more about the conservation and research work being undertaken in the Galápagos.

Integrity is availble to charter in the Galápagos through Northrop & Johnson. Integrity is managed for charter byInternational Nature & Cultural Adventures (INCA)
