    There are very few places in the Galapagos Islands where you have the chance to spot the three different species of boobies that live in the Islands. Here in Punta Pitt you will be able to spot the elegant Nazca or masked boobies, the dazzling blue-footed boobies and the endangered red-footed boobies. Here, the three of them live in the same area and seeing them on shore or in flight is a spectacular sight. With amazing aerial maneuvers, boobies are able to dive into the sea with incredible precision to catch their prey. Despite their agility while flying these birds are quite clumsy on the ground and this is why they have received their name which derives from the Spanish word “bobo”. After our land visit to Punta Pitt, we will enjoy some snorkeling around Pitt Islet.

    Depending on the scheduled activities of the Galapagos National Park for a particular day, this tour is complemented with a visit to either Cerro Brujo or the Galapaguera. The Galapaguera is a place where the famous Galapagos giant land tortoises roam in their natural environment. Meanwhile, Cerro Brujo will captivate you with its spectacular geological formations and its beautiful sandy beach.
