Wednesday, January 30: Bartolomé Island & Sullivan Bay (James Island)

Day: 
6

Morning: Bartolomé Island A small satellite island of the neighboring Santiago Island, Bartolomé is a landmark of Galápagos. Broken volcanic material reveals one of the most striking volcanic landscapes, the Pinnacle rock. After a dry landing, the short, yet somewhat steep trail will reveal virtually every volcanic feature expected to be found in Galápagos: lava flows, tuff, cinder and spatter cones. To reach the summit, a wooden staircase was built to minimize erosion on the island ́s slopes. The vista of the Pinnacle Rock next to golden beaches and turquoise waters is the prize! There will then be swimming and snorkeling along the north beach of Bartolomé. A glass-bottom boat ride is an option for non-snorkelers. Lunch will be on board.

Afternoon: Sullivan Bay (James Island) After lunch, board the panga for the short ride to the landing site at Sullivan Bay on the East Coast of Santiago. There will be a wet landing on a white coral sand beach, and a walk over lava that flowed here less than 100 years ago. This is the perfect place to see and feel the volcanic origin of Galápagos. The last major eruption on Santiago was probably in the early 1900s. One observer aboard a sailing vessel reported that the ship approached the lava flow so closely that the pine tar used to seal the hull of the ship began to soften, and the captain had to hurry the ship away from the bay.
