Jan 24, 2018 - National Geographic Endeavour II
Once in Espumilla, we started early in the morning with the first activity of the day, we offered kayak, paddle boarding, snorkeling and a ride on the glass bottom boat
There was a big surge on this day, for that reason we warn out guests to be aware of the waves, by keeping a distance of the shore, wary of waves breaking drastic against the rocks. It was amazing watching to power of nature, which needs taken into consideration. Kayaking was great, paddling, around the coast, with couple of sea lions near the kayakers. There were also a lot of fish on the surface eating and hand out in a large number, yellow tail mullet fish, king angel fish, amongst others.
after the kayaking and paddle board activities, we all back on board and prepare for our next activity, snorkeling or a ride on the glass bottom boat.
It was my chance to show our guest about the marine life without touchign the water, the experience of glass bottom boat was very nice regarding condition, water was very clear, so we had a chance to see a lot different species of fish, plus a Galapagos shark’s tail cause it just pass around, we appreciated some coral reef, and a lot of star fish. I used a chart to identify the species of every fish we saw.
Once on Puerto Egas on island of Santiago, we offered our guest two options: snorkeling, or nature walk along Puerto Egas. The surge finally stopped a little bit, conditions were great for snorkeling, and once we disembarked we started snorkeling along the coast. We had great opportunities to see a lot of tropical fish, sea lion, sea turtles, condition was great, good visibility, and warm water.
