Traveling across the Itabaca Channel is a great first introduction to the Galapagos. The trip will take you from Baltra Island to Santa Cruz Island – just over 500 meters away. You will travel by water taxi across the channel.
Something to keep in mind, is to keep your camera in hand. You just never know what you might see. Aside from the amazing Galapagos wildlife, there is some spectacular scenery. Pictured here is the Baltra Island coastline from the water taxi. The water really is that color – on sunny days at least.
