Today was the first full day of our expedition with National Geographic Islander II. Very early in the morning, we took Zodiacs to Bartolome Island, where we climbed a wooden staircase all the way to the top for one of the most iconic views of the Galapagos Islands. During our Zodiac ride, we spotted the only warm water penguin in the world, the Galapagos penguin, which is also the third smallest. We counted about nine of these adorable creatures. In the afternoon, we took a walk along Cerro Dragon, where we saw almost a dozen Galapagos land iguanas all over the trail. Then it was back to the ship for a sunset cocktail.
