This particular island had great significance as a strategic location during the Second World War. Additionally, it functions as the main airport for the Galapagos Islands, where tourists and colonists frequently come and go. Upon arriving at Baltra Airport, a naturalist guide fluent in English will be available to provide assistance. Guests will then be transferred to the yacht, where they will receive a welcome and briefing.
Later in the day, after lunch, visitors will disembark at Mosquera Island, located between North Seymour and Baltra. This island is a long, narrow stretch of white sand, rocks, and tide pools that was formed through geological uplift. Unlike the volcanically formed islands that have a conical shape, Mosquera has a flat appearance. The island is an excellent spot for snorkeling, beach strolls, and observing wildlife in a more peaceful environment compared to other more popular islands. This island is home to a significant population of sea lions and various shorebirds. Guests will receive a briefing and dinner on board the yacht.
