The Finch Bay was designed to bring nature lovers and soft-adventure travellers into close contact with the magical paradise of the Galápagos through a variety of activities and day-tours aboard the hotel’s own yachts – the Sea Finch and Sea Lion.

You can visit North Seymour, a great opportunity to observe blue-footed boobies, two species of frigates, swallow-tailed gull, sea lions and marine iguanas on a dramatic island or South Plaza, an island mixed with contrasts of white sand, turquoise waters and black lava of the shoreline. Guests can also walk among giant Opuntia cactus and endemic land iguanas, unique to Santa Fé Island.

There is a variety of multisport activities such as snorkelling, kayaking, excursions on mountain bikes, and visits to Santa Cruz Island’s highlands and the Charles Darwin Research Station. Metropolitan Touring offers tours to the Galápagos Islands.
