Galápagos adventures — the western islands (2013)

Our return trip in May, 2013 specifically focused on the western islands of Isabela and  Fernandina.  The most western, and therefore the youngest, islands of the archipelago are renown for their rugged, extraordinary landscapes and amazing snorkeling opportunities.  On the pages below, you can travel with us to some islands we visited before (Santa Cruz, Floreana) and then on to the all new islands of Isabela, Fernandina, and Santiago.  Come on along!

Heading back to the Galápagos:  from Quito to the archipelago.

Santa Cruz:  the highlands and the Giant Tortoises.

Floreana:  Punta Cormorán and Post Office Bay.

Santa Cruz:  Puerto Ayora and Tortuga Bay.

Isabela:  Punta Moreno and Bahia Elizabeth

Isabela:  Urbina Bay

Fernandina:  Punta Espinoza.

Isabela:  Tagus Cove and Punta Vicente Roca.

    Hi. Love your travel log. Looking for your writeup on western islands, 2013 trip?

      Hi, Linda–

      Thank for the kind words–and the nudge! Summers are a crazy time and I’ve been recalcitrant in getting the new trip report segments up. I have the first 2 days posted, but those are not the most interesting landings. I’m currently working on Day 3 (one last day spent in Santa Cruz before heading to the wild and wooly western island!). Once that one’s up, I’ll move to the reports on the new landings. Thanks for your patience and stay tuned!
