We are about to finish our expedition on National Geographic Endeavour II and today took us to the iconic Bartholome and Chinese Hat Islets, offering a blend of unique geological formations, diverse wildlife, and a glimpse into the Galapagos' geological history. Chinese Hat, named for its distinct shape resembling a traditional Chinese hat, has unique lava formations which captivated us. The small, cone-shaped island showcased a variety of volcanic features, including lava tubes and fissures. Brown pelicans, marine iguanas, and Sally Lightfoot crabs welcomed us as we explored the coastline.
