We set out at 7am this morning for a visit to Seymour Island. Again we had the bus trip across the island to where the Altamar was moored. Once on board we motored out of the port and this time turned right. We travelled along the length of Baltra Island which is mainly taken up by the airport.
Once at Seymour we anchored off shore and …
We flew into the Galapagos Islands on Thursday, landing about !2pm having had a one hour time change. The airport is on Baltra Island, one of the 113 islands in the Galapagos archipelago. It took a while to get through the airport as everyone has to pay a $US100 entry fee which I presume goes towards the upkeep of this special National Park. Once …

They have lateral shape tails like a crocodile that make it easy for them to swim through the water. We then jump back on the boat to head out a little way for a snorkel. We swim with a massive sting ray, a ...

We were no sooner in our cabins than the ship's bell rang, calling us back to the main deck for lunch - spaghetti bolognaise and fresh fruit. It was buffet style, self served, and there was heaps so it was not a problem to go back for seconds or even thirds if you were really hungry.

TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel Silberstein Puerto Ayora
This is a very comfortable albeit small hotel. It has very spacious rooms with king size beds and efficient airconditioning. There is a nice pool area.We had full board here and the meals were excellent. Three course dinners with a variety of dishes all well presented. A pleasant bar area with efficient and friendly service. Free WiFi available. I would recommend this to any visitor as it is an easy distance into the harbour area and a short walk to shops and restaurants.
