  • Beautiful color of the sea, a little more organization in the management of the boats. All they make you wear your life jacket near the port (because there are controls) and then everyone does take off.

  • Leaving Santa Cruz Island to Baltra Island you have to use a Solar Powered Ferry, and then a bus to Baltra AirPort 
  • The baltra airport Santa Cruz Island ferry across the Canal, because it is not from the bus transfers would be required. A special Canal is not in this farewell to Galapagos with Canal makes us feel.
