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 …
Starting off today, we woke up at 7 to grab a quick brekky of croissants, strawberry yogurt and instant coffee. We then got changed into our bikinis and headed to the tour office. When we got there, we we kitted out with Jess getting flippers held together with wires and cable ties!! Seeing these attempt to work in the water left Kathy and I in tears of laughter. Not really knowing what to expect, we walked to the pier where we jumped into a dingy type boat which took us out to ...
It was a very bumpy 2 hour journey by speed boat to Santa Cruz on Monday, we arrived by 9.30 and, after breakfast went to Las Grietas. This is part of a volcanic fracture where sea water and rain water mix. It was really deep - most people went swimming and climbed up the rocks to jump in, I just took photos, the water was apparently really cold.

- Bike ride to the "Wall of Tears" with Walter (an American guy who was on my boat to the island and in my hostel).

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.
