How to get to Pitt Point?

Existen dos formas para llegar a Punta Pitt en la Isla San Cristobal Galápagos. Primero, a través de un crucero en Galápagos que incluya Punta Pitt en su itinerario. Segunda, tomando un tour diario desde la Isla San Cristóbal.

En el Tour 360 incluye Punta Pitt pero no se hace desembarco ni snorkeling en el sector, solo se hace avistamiento de aves. Probablemente tendrás que tener binoculares para observar a los piqueros de patas rojas en los acantilados.

Trip itinerary

El tour inicia desde el muelle de acuario, donde salen las embarcaciones de tour diario. Toma casi 1 hora y media de navegacion hasta llegar al extremo norte de la Isla San Cristobal, que es donde se encuentra Punta Pitt.

Se realiza un desembarco mojado en la Playa dorada de Punta pitt, donde se inicia la caminata a la cima. A diferencia de otros treking, no existe un sendero como tal, por eso los zapatos deben ser para caminata y disfrutar de la compañia de lagartijas de lava, piqueros de patas azules y piqueros de patas rojas.

Antes de finalizar el recorrido o aveces al llegar a la punta dependiendo del itinerario de la embarcacion, se disfruta de un tiempo de snorkel en el Islote Pitt, disfrutaras de variedad de peces, lobos, tortugas marinas y corales.

Solo hay una embarcación que hace el Tour de Punta Pitt con la Galapaguera natural los días jueves, la caminata es muy dura y demora casi 3 horas en total, es todo un espectáculo ver a las Tortugas gigantes como han sobrevivido de forma natural. Lamentablemente por la poca demanda, no hay viaje confirmado hasta conseguir un minimo de 8 personas.

    Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, we realized that travel plans can change overnight and, if we experience an emergency outisde of our own country, we would expect travel assistance that actually works during a crisis. From now own, I strongly recommend having good travel and trip cancellation insurance.

      We had a great time on our trip to Punta Pitt! The guide, Ernesto, was fantastic, and it was such a beautiful place to visit. We got to snorkel with sea lions, but the water ended up being a bit rough, and that location might have been better for more experienced snorkelers than ourselves. Still a really great trip, fun boat ride with great crew, and just a fun experience overall. So cool to see all the different boobies at this time of year too. In May, the Red-footed Boobies have chicks, the Blue-footeds are displaying and setting up nesting areas, and the Nazcas were doing their own thing closer to the coast. Punta Pitt is a must-see for any bird enthusiasts like us.

      We also recently went on a the Punta Pitt tour with Christian. This was the best tour company of all our tours by far. Christian is a compassionate person who wants to please.. He is not jaded like other trip leaders we experienced. He treated us like it was his first tour he was doing. Like we were special. I had not been snorkeling in over 15 years and def. was hesitant. He pulled me the whole time while I held onto a a flotation ring. He kept checking in with the whole group and kept us together. He also dove down to show us things that we might have missed like a starfish.. He also took photos with a go pro that you could download later. This seems obvious as to what a trip leader should do but we found other tour leaders not doing these things. Other trips had not enough or damaged equipment. Punta Pitt was not one of our original choices. One of our tours did not run so we added this on. It was our favorite island and favorite tour. The landscape and hike was beautiful. You see tons of boobies everywhere. We saw boobies on other islands but not in the quantity we saw here. The snorkeling had clear water unlike other places we went. The food was fabulous. The crew great. Book this tour with Chokotours and Christian!!!

      The day tour to Punta Pitt was fantastic, it was a wonderful day out, one of my favourites in the Galapagos, everything was well organized, the boat and the crew were wonderful, we were all looked after very well, the naturalist guy was excellent too, very knowledgeable and he was very forthcoming with our questions on the wildlife. The captain and the skipper were professional and attentive. I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone who is visiting San Cristobal.
