We start our day with an early outing to explore the small and picturesque island of South Plaza. Here we find a unique species of reptile called the Galapagos land iguana. Their reptilian appearance and their coloring are outstanding. Swallow-tailed gulls nest right alongside the trail. Sea lion territories are guarded by large and active males. At this time of year, pups are born.
On Santa Fe Island, we continue with aquatic activities like kayaking and snorkeling in the shallow and clear turquoise water. We observe sea lions, turtles, and large schools of various fish. We explore and observe the island’s land iguanas as well as finches, doves, hawks, and mockingbirds.
