Galapagos — South & East Islands aboard the Yolita

The Yolita will take you on a four-night journey cruising through the Galápagos Islands that you won’t soon forget. The southern and eastern islands play host to some of the best snorkelling spots within the Galápagos, including Islote Champion and Kicker Rock, where you will see some of the most diverse and impressive marine life around. Relax on the white-sand beaches with iguanas and sea lions, then head to Punta Pitt in search of three distinct species of booby. Don’t forget to drop off a postcard at Post Office Bay before you go, too!
