7 Things to Do in Santa cruz
Santa Fe is one of the oldest islands in the Galápagos archipelago. It only covers about 9 square miles , but offers an incredible proliferation of wildlife, both on land and in its surrounding waters. You’ll have plenty of time to observe the animals that live here – this tour begins at 8:00 AM, and lasts around 7 hours, returning to Puerto Ayora at 3:00 PM. It includes a break for lunch on board the yacht.
This tour takes you to explore Floreana Island, the island with arguably the most eccentric history in the Galápagos. It has seen its fair share of human activity, beginning with 18th-century whalers. On this tour you’ll see some remnants of that history, as well as plants and animals that are rare even by Galápagos standards—Floreana Island has its very own endemic species of finch called a medium tree finch, to offer just one example.
Go on a diving tour off the coast of Santa Cruz to see sea lions, sharks, seals, eels, sea stars, and bat fish. Pick from three different dives sites — they all have their own thriving populations of rare sea life. You'll find that the water is warmest between November and April.
