This itinerary seems like a pretty typical western itinerary. It hits some good spots on Isabela and Fernandina (the youngest and furthest west of the islands), although it spends what looks like a full day in the inhabited areas of Isabela--interesting, but not the best parts of Isabela. (If you see the breeding program at the Charles Darwin Research Station on Santa Cruz, I'm not sure you'll see much different at the breeding program on Isabela.)

Seems like a fine choice to me. You'll see lots of marvelous creatures--both on land and while snorkeling.

Just got back from the Galapagos, if you are interested in snorkeling, make sure you bring a wet suit or check if your cruise will rent you one.. The waters are cold. Your itinerary is fine, the stops in Isabela island are uninhabited except Pto Villamil.. Do kayaking in Tagus cove, you get to see the penguins here and a lot of other wildlife...email me if you want more info.. Enjoy!!
