Galapagos Islands Guided Tour

Arrival in Galapagos

Welcome to the Galapagos Islands!

Your flight from Quito or Guayaquil lands at either Baltra or San Cristobal airports in the Galapagos Islands. The Baltra airport was originally constructed by the U.S. military during World War II as a base to protect the Panama Canal from enemy attack. During this period most of the indigenous fauna of the island was exterminated. Land iguanas have only recently been successfully re-introduced and can be seen near the Baltra airport. Baltra is currently an Ecuadorian naval base and is not within the boundaries of Galapagos National Park. The San Cristobal airport is just a few minutes outside of the town of Puerto Baquerizo Moreno (the Capital of the Galapagos).

Welcome to the Baltra Airport in Galapagos... You are met at the Galapagos airport by the naturalist  guide from your yacht or ship who will guide you on your journey through the magnificent Galapagos Islands. A short bus ride takes you from the airport to the dock where your boat and crew await you for your trip of a lifetime...
From the dock you get a glimpse of what your trip will be like. Frigate birds soar high above the azure blue bay while blue-footed boobies dive like shooting arrows from the heights and submerge after fish below.

After arriving aboard your yacht or ship you receive a warm welcome from the crew and a brief introduction to etiquette and safety aboard and while ashore on the islands. This helps us protect these unique islands and their wildlife. Don't forget your hat and sunscreen... and camera! This afternoon we set sail for a small cove not far from Baltra...
