This tour begins early in the morning on Baltra Island. Breakfast is served on board.
From there, you’ll set sail for the small volcanic island of Bartolomé. Your island hike will take you to Pinnacle Rock, which is the most notable feature of the island’s landscape. It is an eruption frozen in time — when the magma shot out of the volcano, the cold sea water solidified the Pinnacle Rock formation.
Your hike will last about an hour. On the way, you’ll keep an eye out for lava lizards and lava cacti. At the summit of the hike, visitors get an expansive view of Pinnacle Rock.
Next stop, Bartolomé Island’s coral beach. Take a dip in the water and go snorkeling, for the chance to see sea turtles, sea lions, tropical fish and Humboldt penguins. You'll have lunch on the return trip to Baltra Island.
