Punta Pitt Tour

Punta Pitt is located at the eastern end of San Cristobal Island. It comprises a beach path of approximately 90 meters with several natural viewpoints.

 It is composed of the volcanic tuff substrate. It is the only site on the islands where you can observe the three species of boobies (blue-footed, red-footed and masked) and the two species of frigate birds nesting in the same area.

The reason why all three species of boobies are found at Punta Pitt is due to the geographic location; there is enough food so there is no competition among them.

The blue-footed boobies nest inland, the red-footed boobies nest on bushes, and the masked boobies nest on the cliffs.

 In this tour we will start with a navigation of approximately 2 hours to Punta Pitt, here we will disembark and take a 2-hour walk where we will encounter blue-footed, red-footed, and masked boobies with their young, it is quite a spectacle. On the way back to the boat we will continue to Pitt Islet where we will discover the marine world of this magnificent islet and if we are lucky we will be able to observe Galapagos sharks, white tip sharks, and black tip sharks among other species.

On this tour we visit the following points:

  • Snorkel at Pitt Islet.
  • Walk at Pitt Point where we will observe the 3 species of boobies such as blue-footed boobies, red-footed boobies, and masked boobies.
