Silversea Starts Galapagos Sailings


Silversea Cruises officially kicked off its Galapagos itineraries last weekend, launching the first of two seven-night itineraries on the all-suite Silver Galapagos.

The first of two sailings departed on Saturday from Baltra Island in the Galapagos, setting sail for San Cristóbal Island on a north central itinerary. The sailing includes a circumnavigation of Isla Daphne Grande, including explorations in Bahía Darwin and El Barranco in Genovesa; Bahía Gardner and Punta Suarez in Española; and El Edén, Fausto Llerena, and Puerto Ayora in Santa Cruz.

Silversea also will sail a western itinerary from San Cristóbal to Baltra that includes stops in Cerro Dragón and Playa Las Bachas in Santa Cruz and a circumnavigation of Roca León Dormido.  

The sailings mark the first time the Silver Galapagos will circumnavigate Kicker Rock and Daphne Major, two locations well known for their wildlife.
