Today, our guests explored the westernmost part of the Galapagos. During the morning, we landed and snorkeled at Punta Espinosa on Fernandina Island. The countless Galapagos marine iguanas basking on the shoreline were a highlight. While snorkeling in the morning, guests observed Galapagos marine iguanas and green sea turtles feeding on seaweed on the rocks. In the afternoon, we took Zodiac tours to experience Punta Vicente Roca on Isabela Island. The site offers an impressive view of a collapsed volcano. The cliffs are good perching spots for seabirds like Nazca boobies, flightless cormorants, and Galapagos penguins. At the end of the day, our hotel department offered a wine tasting to celebrate as we crossed the equator.
