Bartolom Island: The best island in the world
How to get to Bartolome Island
There are two ways to get to Bartolome Island in the Galapagos. First, through a navigable cruise that includes Bartolome Island in your itinerary. Second, taking a daily tour from Santa Cruz Island.
Bartolomé Island travel itinerary
Everything starts, from the meeting point that is assigned by the operator that you have contracted the tour to Bartolomé, then you travel by bus for about 45 minutes until you reach the Itabaca channel. Once embarked, it sails for 2 hours, until reaching Bartolomé Island or the destination that it combines according to the yacht’s itinerary.
Once on the island, a hike starts up to the viewpoint. Certainly with the best view in all of Galapagos. After that, on board the Yacht you have lunch. Then, according to the permission that the Galapagos National Park has granted to the boat, you carry out the following activities:
» Sullivan bay of Santiago Island: You do a snorkeling time, in the dry season you can see many penguins. On the other hand, you ask to be taken directly to the beach and you can take a short walk on dry Pahoehoe lava.
» Golden beach of Bartolome island: Although the times I have traveled to Bartolomé Island, I have not been able to take the tour with the itinerary to the golden beach. In the same way, that any other tour is snorkeling or if you want, enjoy the beach.
» Chinise Hat island: A single boat has the itinerary of Bartolome + Chinese hat. The snorkeling activity is carried out on the golden beach and on the Chinese Hat Island, a wet landing is made to have a short walk.
I recommend booking this tour to Bartolome, well in advance. Especially to find availability. On the other hand, if you plan to travel in the months of July, August or December, make your reservation about 6 months in advance.

I have an alliance with 9 operators who own their yachts. Most importantly, they have permission to travel to Bartolomé Island. However, each one has different tour prices. The more expensive the price, the better the service on board and your boat.
I have segmented each tour with stars. As a result of the feedback obtained from my passengers, being ⭐⭐⭐✩✩ of lower quality, ⭐⭐⭐⭐✩ medium quality and ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ of higher quality.
You can book this tour with a full payment using two available methods of payment: bank transfer (no additional cost for bank transfers between Ecuadorian banks) or you can pay with a credit/debit card. Price does not include 12% tax. (We only charge it if you need an invoice.)
DON’T WASTE ANY TIME!
I can help you reserve this tour with local operators that own the vessels. Instead of wasting time wandering around each island looking for tours, you should be enjoying the places you can visit on your own while at the Galapagos Islands.
