One Day Extension on Floreana Island
Floreana Island Daily Net tour: $ 110 per person.
Asilo de la paz:
Asilo de la Paz is a hill located after the agricultural zone of Floreana, where we will find the pirate caves and the water springs at the base of the hill. The water spring provides water for the entire population of the island, about 100 people. The caves were home to pirate Patrick Watkins, who lived there around the 1700’s. In 1929 a German philosopher and dentist Dr. Friedrich Ritter settled there with lover Dora Strauch. Then came to stay there Heinz and Margaret Wittmer, who soon gave birth to Rolf, the first “galapagueño” citizen. We will engage with some fascinating stories of mystery and survival on the islands, as one of the self-described Baroness Eloise Wagner von Bosquet and her three lovers.
La Lobería, a small beach with a sea lion colony that lives on the beach and along the bay coast. Here we find also marine iguanas and green sea turtles that nest on the beach. Swimming and snorkeling here will be a pleasant way to end a breathtaking day.
