Bartolome Island is a volcanic islet and one of the youngest islands of Galapagos Islands archipelago. The Bertolome Island's name as well as the Sulivan Bay on Santiago Island, were called so, because of the best friend of Charles Darwin, Sir Bartholomew James Sulivan. With a total land area of just 1.2 square kilometres (0.5 square miles), this deserted island offers some of the most beautiful landscapes in the Galapagos.

Long way from Santa Cruz but extremely enjoyable

After pick up from our hotel , we drove about an hour to the yacht which sailed for 2.5 hours to beautiful Bartolomew . Lovely... Show full review ➤ After pick up from our hotel , we drove about an hour to the yacht which sailed for 2.5 hours to beautiful Bartolomew . Lovely hike and photo and explanation of tye area, followed with snorkling and excellent lunch. Another 3.5 hours returning to hotel. Overall professional guide and yacht staff and great skipper to navigate in semi rough sea. I believe that tye trip should add extra time for snorkling -it is too much to spend 7 hours in travelling out of 9.5 hours trip! We loved the hike, water activity and lunch was amazing, not to mention the lovely snacks on the way.  Hide review
