Isabela & Fernandina Island
Apr 18, 2017 - National Geographic Islander
This morning we woke up on a cloudy day navigating towards the south hemisphere, crossing the equator on the northern side of Isabela Island known also as the “seahorse”. Later as the sun shined on this morning we explored Punta Vicente Roca on a zodiac ride and snorkel with marine sea turtles and the amazing Galapagos flightless cormorants. On the afternoon we disembarked on Fernandina Island on Punta Espinoza, the best location to admire the endemic marine iguanas that cover the lava fields and the lava landscapes. We went on a long walk to discover pahoe-hoe lava and a-a lava.
