We offer full-day navigation aboard our own private yacht exclusive for Pikaia’s guest only. Here you will have the chance to go island hopping in complete comfort. The Pikaia I, is the only vessel in the Galapagos to have private cabins for day touring only. These cabins include beds, air conditioning and showers. During the navigation, you will not only visit the beautiful islands to see the majestic animals and resplendent scenery, but you will also have breakfast and lunch, and go snorkelling in the fascinating Galapagos marine reserve.
We take you on a tour of the highlands of Santa Cruz island. First, you will visit the twin craters, which are two large volcanoes that formed right next to each other. You will also be taken to el Chato II. This is a tortoise farm where you will get really close to these giant creatures and see them roaming around in their natural habitat. Some fascinating lava tubes are located nearby. You will be able to walk through a section of these tubes, which were formed millions of years ago due to the outer layer of the erupted lava cooling while the centre still flowed.
Enjoy a half-day excursion to one of the most beautiful beaches in the Galapagos, Tortuga Bay. You can either trek through the dry forest or take a boat from the port to reach this amazing beach. You will admire the beauty of the white sand and stunning blue water. You can also take surfing lessons, go snorkelling or kayaking. While relaxing on the beach you will be able to observe many animals.
