Day by day

Day 1 : San Cristobal Island: Lobos Island & Kicker Rock

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.

Lobos Island

Lobos Island is named after the many sea-lions that live here, resting or playing on the rocky shores. There are many birds that call it home, including pelicans and frigate birds, yellow warblers, and nests for their nests. The channel is small and clear. This makes it easy for you to spot sea turtles, sea-lions, stingrays, or even white-tipped sharks within the channels.

Kicker Rock

Kicker rock, which is made up of two volcanic cones eroded from the ground and standing 104m above the open sea, is one of the most spectacular sites in Galapagos Islands. This is one of the most beautiful places in Galapagos for amazing underwater life.
