Daily Cruises to
Bartolomew & Chinesse Hat


Bartholomew is a small Galapagos Island located 18 miles northwest from the Itabaca Channel. Arriving in Bartholomew you get a one of the most incredible landscapes. The summit trail begins with a dry landing, though sea-lions make the purpose-built dock more exciting. The trail is a dusty walk through volcanic ash. The only vegetation is the "pioneer Tiquilia plant"and greenish Chamaesyce. These are vital in binding the ash that fans down from the hill.

Bartholomew is consider one of the best snorkeling sites in the central Galapagos region, a swim at the foot of the Pinnacle Rock and around its base is the most important deep water snorkel with many different species of parrots fishes, marine turtles, sea lions and sometimes Galapagos penguins.

After an exquisite lunch on board the M/Y WindRose we will head to Chinese Hat, which is a very small volcano nearby Santiago Island, surrounded by small spatter cones creating a dramatic landscape. Because of its distinctive shape, Chinese Hat has fascinated visitors as long as they have been coming to Galapagos.

It's one of the smallest Galapagos Islands but don't be fooled: it has a unique visitor site with an unforgettable view! Galapagos Penguins and eventually Galapagos hawks are active across this patch of land which is also beautiful for visitors who just come to see and enjoy the scenery. A wet landing in the main beach of the island will give you the opportunity of enjoying the sandy beach where sea lions rest and a variety of wade birds feed on the shore line.

We recommend to bring a small backpack (waterproof), comfortable walking shoes, sneakers or rubber soles, shorts trousers, t-shirts, long and shorts leeved shirts, windbreaker, bathing suit, snorkel equipment hat or cap, sun block, sunglasses, binoculars & camera.
