Iguazu - Rio de Janeiro

DAY

When arriving at Pitt Point, it will feel as if you’ve landed on an extraterrestrial planet. You can see the many different developments over time of how volcanic activity formed this island. A hike up to the top beholds amazing views of the surrounding waters. Watch out for blue-footed boobie nests on the ground and keep an eye out for the red-footed boobies nesting in the trees once you reach the top of the island.

Ask the Cruise Manager for one of our complimentary postcards to write a message and address it home. Leave it in the barrel used before by pirates and sailors. While your there, see if there are any other postcards you can take home with you to send for fellow travelers who have already left their messages!

During the afternoon the cruise continues to Floreana - Cormorant Point / Devil’s Crown. Cormorant is an interesting visitor site. Two beaches can be visited here, just beyond the first beach is a saltwater lagoon with flamingos. One of the beaches look green because of the olivine crystals, and the other is appropriately called Flour Beach because of the powdery white sand, made from fine, pulverized coral. Watch your feet if wading in the water, stingrays love to hang out here as well. Devil’s Crown boasts one of the finest snorkeling opportunities. Below the surface are amazing volcanic structures that have submerged over time. Hundreds of colorful fish species can be seen along the reef, along with sharks, rays, sea turtles, sea lions, and rays. It’s a beautiful underwater spectacle that cannot be missed.

Visiting Corcovado & Sugar Loaf at your own pace

DAY

Black Turtle Cove is located on the north side of Santa Cruz Island. This shallow inlet is surrounded by mangroves and provides a natural protection for a variety of marine life, attracting the vulnerable juveniles of many species. Below the surface of the water, you can see both blacktip and white-tip reef sharks, sea turtles, golden cow-nose rays, and spotted eagle rays. Pelicans and blue-footed oobies hunt here, diving gracefully into the water.

The only visit you will have on this day is to Black Turtle Cove. Afterwards, you will have time to gather your belongings and then the guide and cruise manager will thank you for your time with Haugan Cruises. Then, you will be transferred to the airport and your cruise will come to an end.  Transfer to the airport for your flight back to Quito.

This adventure ends here, but lots of memories will remain.

“The really magical things are the ones that happen right in front of you. A lot of the time you keep looking for beauty, but it is already there. And if you look with a bit more intention, you see it.” ― Vik Muniz

Great trip to Patagonia. All our wishes were integrated into the itinerary.  

The personal concierge service was perfect. She helped with any questions we had, she even managed to get us a very early Check-in into the hotel in Buenos Aires.

At every airport, we were picked up, no worries at all. We already booked our next vacation with Across South America. Absolutely to be recommended.
