Half week expeditions - Tuesday to Friday or Friday to Tuesday - allow guests to see some of the Galápagos top-notch visiting sites, and also include other highlights of continental Ecuador in a single visit. The ISABELA II officers, crew and expedition team including highly qualified Naturalist Guides, all with many years of experience, will make sure the Galápagos stay will be the expedition of a lifetime.

Tuesday-Friday portions include North Seymour Island, where land and marine iguanas share the grounds with blue footed boobies, two species of frigate birds, swallow tailed gulls, and Galápagos sea lions. Española, the only home of the waved albatross (April to December), blue footed and Nazca boobies, colonies of Sea lions in dream white beaches. Floreana, nesting sea turtles (December to April), and greater flamingoes, and the giant tortoises, the most emblematic animal of Galápagos in Santa Cruz Island. Extraordinary snorkeling sites at Gardner Bay and Champion Islet.

Friday-Tuesday, guests visit the Charles Darwin Research Station, then the unique island of Tower, the world largest colony of red footed boobies, with their cousins, the Nazca boobies. Tower is the bird island, with greater frigates, tropic birds, swallow tailed gulls among many other land and sea bird species. Fernandina Island, where guests walk among fields of motionless marine iguanas, is also the home of two flightless marine birds, the Galápagos penguin and the flightless cormorant. Santiago Island has human and natural history combined: Sea lions and fur seals share the habitat in a most impressive volcanic coast with coastal birds and intertidal organisms. Bartolomé Island has the landmark of Galápagos, the pinnacle rock and the most impressive geological landscape. Great snorkeling in Tower, Isabela, Santiago islands.
