Day 1 - Baltra, Galapagos Islands

Arrive: Sat 01 January 2022 / Depart: Sat 01 January 2022

During World War II, Baltra served as a U.S. military base protecting the Panama Canal from enemy attack. Now the cactus-strewn landscapes of Baltra are home to the region's main airport and where you will meet the ship. After just a short bus and zodiac ride you will be aboard. Your luggage will be delivered straight to your stateroom, giving you the opportunity to explore the Celebrity Xpedition, a 296-foot mega-yacht and your home for the week.

Day 1 - Black Turtle Cove, Santa Cruz Island

Arrive: Sat 01 January 2022 / Depart: Sat 01 January 2022

Day 2 - Sullivan Bay, Santiago

Arrive: Sun 02 January 2022 / Depart: Sun 02 January 2022

Here you have the opportunity for a morning hike over a blackened landscape that is nothing less than a geologic wonderland. At every step, the hardened twists and turns of lava that flowed during a volcanic eruption in the 1900s are visible. Collapse craters, hornitos, and lava cactus dot the trail and where black pahoehoe lava flows between high piles of red volcanic debris (scoria cones). It resembles a strange Martian landscape. A short Zodiac ride along the coast provides additional viewing of the island’s interesting geology along with the opportunity to look for blue-footed boobies, sea turtles, and more.

Day 2 - Bartolome, Galapagos

Arrive: Sun 02 January 2022 / Depart: Sun 02 January 2022

We’ve taken a page out of Darwin’s Red Notebook and learned that to be relevant—to keep up with the times—we have to evolve to fit perfectly into the ever-changing world around us. More specifically, the environment around us. With 10 years in the Galapagos, we’ve learned and evolved our vacations to meet the needs of the modern explorer. We’ve adapted to bring you updated luxuries that elevate your experience in this precious archipelago to the next level. The way we see it, the Galapagos Islands may be primitive, but your vacation there doesn’t have to be.

Day 3 - Urvina Bay (Isabela)

Arrive: Mon 03 January 2022 / Depart: Mon 03 January 2022

Due to currents and upwelling, the water here is noticeably colder than in other parts of the Galapagos and in 1954, part of this area along Isabela’s coast was uplifted 12–15 feet just prior to an eruption. The remains of a coral reef raised during the uplift can still be found at Urvina Bay. On a long hike, you can ramble through the now high-and-dry corals of this once thriving reef or stick to a shorter version of the same hike and look for land iguanas, finches, and if luck holds, giant tortoises. Afterwards, if conditions allow, the black sand beach of Urvina Bay offers a chance for swimming and snorkeling. While in the water, you may see sea turtles and diving cormorants.

Day 3 - Tagus Cove, Isabela Island

Arrive: Mon 03 January 2022 / Depart: Mon 03 January 2022

Day 4 - Punta Espinoza, Fernandina Island

Arrive: Tue 04 January 2022 / Depart: Tue 04 January 2022

Day 4 - Vicente Roca

Arrive: Tue 04 January 2022 / Depart: Tue 04 January 2022

Day 5 - Puerto Egas, Isla San Salvador

Arrive: Wed 05 January 2022 / Depart: Wed 05 January 2022

Day 5 - Espumilla Beach, Santiago Island

Arrive: Wed 05 January 2022 / Depart: Wed 05 January 2022

Day 6 - Puerto Ayora, Galapagos

Arrive: Thu 06 January 2022 / Depart: Thu 06 January 2022

Santa Cruz is the second-largest island in the Galapagos and home to Puerto Ayora (the largest town in the islands). In 1959, the Ecuadorian government declared all the islands, except areas already colonized, as a national park. In the same year, the Charles Darwin Foundation was founded to promote scientific research and ensure the conservation of the Galapagos. In 1992, the waters surrounding the Galapagos were declared a marine reserve. Here, you have the opportunity to visit a giant tortoise reserve in the lushly vegetated highlands, where the animals roam free in their natural habitat. On another excursion, a short drive through town brings you to the Galapagos Park Service giant tortoise breeding station and the Charles Darwin Research Station. Afterwards there is time to wander through the lovely streets of Puerto Ayora for some shopping.

Day 7 - El Barranco, Genovesa Island

Arrive: Fri 07 January 2022 / Depart: Fri 07 January 2022

Day 7 - Darwin Bay, Genovesa Island

Arrive: Fri 07 January 2022 / Depart: Fri 07 January 2022

Day 8 - North Seymour

Arrive: Sat 08 January 2022 / Depart: Sat 08 January 2022

North Seymour Island is just north of Baltra and was formed through a series of sporadic uplifts. It took about a million years for the island to reach its current level. Now above the sea, the layers of lava that originally erupted underwater have created a low-lying island packed with wildlife. The island is home to the largest nesting colony of frigatebirds in the Galapagos along with blue-footed boobies, finches, land iguanas, marine iguanas, and sea lions. A hike along shore and into the island’s interior brings you up close and personal to just about everything the island has to offer. You can also choose to go on a short Zodiac ride along the coast to search for fur seals, sea lions, and red-billed tropic birds. And for the more adventurous and experienced, jump in for a deep-water snorkel.

Day 8 - Baltra, Galapagos Islands

Arrive: Sat 08 January 2022 / Depart: Sat 08 January 2022

During World War II, Baltra served as a U.S. military base protecting the Panama Canal from enemy attack.
