We woke up anchored in Academy Bay and started an amazing day in the Santa Cruz highlands. We began in the beautiful Scalesia forest and visited the tortoise ranch, where we observed tortoises in their natural habitat. We enjoyed a delicious lunch and ended our day by visiting the Charles Darwin Research Station. Our guests were thrilled to meet and learn more about the famous Galapagos giant tortoises. They also enjoyed visiting the town of Puerto Ayora and seeing how the locals live.
