South Plaza Island

This tour will take you to South Plaza Island, which is the smallest island of the Galápagos. Despite its small size, this island still has a wealth of interesting wildlife.

South Plaza Island is made of hardened lava. When you disembark at the dock, you’ll probably be greeted by sea lions. Then you’ll go for a hike through a small forest of prickly pear cacti — an area where iguanas commonly congregate, waiting to eat the prickly pear fruit that falls to the ground.

Next, your hike will take you to a cliff, where you’ll have an incredible view of the ocean below, and enormous schools of fish. This spot is also a good place for bird watching, where you can see swallow-tailed gulls, tropic birds, frigate birds, and pelicans.

After the walk, you’ll head back to the boat and have lunch on board. Then the tour continues to Punta Carrion where you’ll get to go snorkeling. Here you’ll see sea turtles, white tip reef sharks, and tropical fish. Afterward, the boat returns to Puerto Ayora.
