Wenesdays & Thrusdays
South Plaza Island

South Plaza Island is beautiful island full of both land life and birds: including Swallow-tailed Gulls, Lava Gulls, Frigate birds, Masked boobies, Blue-footed boobies, Pelicans and Red-billed Tropicbirds. It is not really difficult to go by a gull’s nest and see some chicks flapping their wings trying to fly.

Created by lava that tilted up the sea bed, South Plaza Island is countless years old, with its resident wildlife and diverse plant life having progressively taken over the island since it was formed. Visitors to the island will find that its steep, sloped cliff sides are home to an amazing variety of birds, and it is also home of large colonies of sea lions and marine animals..

Santa Fé Island

After a delicious lunch on board the WindRose Yacht we will head towards Santa Fe Island Is. also called Barrington Island after British Admiral Samuel Barrington, is formed of uplifted, submarine basaltic lava, formed a some 4 million years ago. Much of it is a faulted plateau covered with a forest of giant Opuntia cactae. As you walk through the dense bushes on the short trail, watch out for the Croton bushes, an endemic plant with an indelible stain.The most spectacular plants are the giant prickly pear cactae, unique to Santa Fe (Opuntia echios barringtonensis). The Galapagos dove is common on the trail, as are painted locusts, often pursued by a snake or two. The park monument is often a vantage point to spy a Galapagos hawk. The highlight is the land iguana, a lighter-colored iguana that is endemic to Santa Fe. Santa Fe is also home to a large Sea Lion nursery..
