Santa Cruz Island is home to many of our naturalists, who are excited to share its wonders. We start off with a visit to Los Gemelos, a geological formation in the the cloud-forest highlands of Santa Cruz. Surrounded by a forest of scalesia trees, this area is completely different from the shorelines and arid landscapes we’ve seen. Later, at Manzanillo Ranch, we spot many giant tortoises lunching on grass in their natural habitat. In the late afternoon, we stop for the first time ever at Bahia Bowditch, where we swim in crystal clear waters and stroll on a beautiful beach.
