Day by day

Day 1 : Baltra Island & Santiago Island: Sullivan Bay

Welcome aboard the M/T Horizon to the Galapagos Islands. Upon your arrival, the crew and guide will meet you and take you to your accommodation. After you arrive, the guide will brief you on safety and emergency procedures, as well as the different areas of the ship and the usual routine.

Santiago Island: Sullivan Bay

Sullivan Bay, located southeast of Santiago Island, is home to an interesting lava field that has a young geological flow dating back to 1897. It can get very hot because the rocks are blackened and made of lava. To protect your feet, you will need to wear appropriate footwear.
