Today our guests explored the westernmost realm of the Galapagos. During the morning everyone went ashore and snorkeled at Punta Espinosa, Fernandina Island. The highlights of the morning outing were the countless Galapagos marine iguanas that were basking at the shoreline. Also spotted while snorkeling were Pacific green sea turtles and different species of fish along the rocky reefs.

In the afternoon our guests experienced Punta Vicente Roca, Isabela Island. This site offers an impressive view of a collapsed volcano. The rocky cliffs provide shelter for Galapagos fur seals and are a good perch for seabirds, like Nazca boobies, brown noddy terns, flightless cormorants, and Galapagos penguins.
