Arrive at Baltra where you will transfer to Aeolian Cove to meet your yacht. This area of astounding beauty comes with fantastic opportunities for surfing the waves that often reach overhead. Accompanied by a world-class Pelorus surf guide, you may end up riding waves alongside sea lions as they play in the breaks. Later, head to the tortoise reserve in the highlands of Santa Cruz, where you can spend the afternoon observing these prehistoric creatures.
Spend the day learning or refreshing your diving skills around the island of Mosquera, where you will discover an abundance of marine life. Dive alongside hammerhead, black tip, and white tip sharks for a once in a lifetime experience. Keep an eye out for garden eels, turtles, barracudas, sting rays, and reef fish. Take part in a conservation programme designed by the National Park, following and tagging new-born hammerhead sharks with leading marine biologists.
Cruise by the White Sand Bar to see one of the world’s largest populations of sea lions. With any luck, you may also spot sharks and mobula rays leaping out of the water. Mobula and manta rays are largely mysterious to the scientific community and you will have the opportunity to take part in a project to identify and track these enigmatic animals on their worldwide migrations.
