Day Trips to the surrounding Islands from Puerto Ayora

As seniors with arthritic Knees, we have a severe concern on doing Day trips to the surrounding Island. We see pictures of Landing on Rocky Shores and Not sandy beaches, which will pose a big threat.Can anyone suggest a sandy beach landing and to which Island?

I believe Santa Fe has a sandy landing and South Plaza has a dock. I have not been to either so can't say more than what I have read.

Just left the Galapagos after a 12 day trip with my 80 yr old mother. She’s had both knees replaced, but did fine. They guides and sailors on the boats were incredibly helpful getting her in and out of the boats, both on rocky landings and boat to boat transfers. We did Sante Fe and N Seymour day trips. Go for it!
