Day 12: Floreana Island (Post Office Bay and Cormorant Point)

Isolated Floreana Island greets you with its colourful shores. This is the site of the Galápagos Affair documentary and storied Post Office Bay, where whalers dropped letters for ships to intercept and deliver home to loved ones. Keep this centuries-long tradition afloat and leave a letter for somebody special. Seize the chance to snorkel alongside green sea turtles, or set out in search of Darwin’s finches before sailing the emerald green waters to the peridotite sands of Cormorant Point.
