At 8:00 in the morning, the assigned bus pick the passengers up to take them to the Itabaca Channel, where they will board a boat, which after 1 ½ hour of navigation, arrives to Plazas; it is a wet landing.

This is the couple of two Islands in the south, which rest only a few hundred meters away from the east coast of Santa Cruz. The North Island is just used for scientific purposes. South Plaza is one of the smallest islands, but rich in Galapagos. With just 130 meters width (426 feet), it was formed from volcanic magma, unique for it characteristics. You disembark in the Channel between North and South Plazas, where the Island gets into the sea.

Along the way you will enjoy an attractive and colorful view. The turquoise water contrasts in a shiny manner with the white sand and the black lava from the coast. The rocks have grown with some cactus in determined places, where you can observe Sally Lightfoot Crabs.

The trail continues gradually to the highest part of the Island to the cliffs from where you can see the ocean in the south; where the Swallow – tailed Gulls have their nests.

Tropical birds, Masked Boobies and Blue Footed Boobies follow the wind currents. The place is a magnificent point to observe the marine life, including stingrays. The coast of Plazas is perfect for snorkeling with colonies of sea lions.
