Baltra Island, sometimes known as South Seymour, is situated at the centre of all the Galapagos Islands and serves as the gateway for visitors to the region. It’s here where you’ll embark or disembark on your luxury cruise by zodiac. The island itself is small and arid but it isn’t rare to see some exotic bird species flying around, perfect as the starting point for an epic wildlife adventure as you tour the islands on your luxury ship. The airstrip here was built back in the Second World War, when the island was used as a US Army Air Base.
When booking with SixStarCruises.co.uk, don’t forget to ask about how we can create the perfect itinerary for you. Why not extend your cruise holiday before or after you’ve sailed the Galapagos, and travel into mainland Ecuador, where you can explore the beauty of the Andean region? Or head to Peru and see the world-famous UNESCO Heritage Site of Machu Picchu and its Lost City of the Incas on a special experience with magnificent views.
The currency in Baltra is the US Dollar. Baltra is 6 hours behind Greenwich Mean Time (GMT -6).
