Punta Vicente Roca and Fernandina Island

Mar 20, 2018 - National Geographic Islander

Today our activities started at the west of Isabela Island with a Zodiac ride around the area, here we spotted many endemic animals like Galapagos penguin, marine iguanas, fur seals, sea lions, fly less cormorants and more.! After these activities, we were ready to jump in to the water to do our snorkeling of the day on Punta Vicente Roca. This place is full of life, the iconic animal of the snorkeling were the sea turtles!

After lunch and siesta, we were ready to disembark on Fernandina Island, the youngest Island of the Galapagos Islands. Here we found hundreds of marine iguanas basking at the rocks, sea lions playing with the waves and even we could see our top predator: the Galapagos hawk!

Wine testing was place on the sky deck to end the journey, after words dinner was ready, we con not imagine which surprises are going to arrive tomorrow, each day looks impossible to top but at least each day have something special.

Ixora was born in the Galapagos Islands, back when the streets were made of sand and gravel. Void of TV and tablets, her childhood friends and pristine natural surroundings made for an inspiring upbringing. She was always drawn to the ocean and her local environment, with her first adventures taking place underwater, in mangrove estuaries, and perched in treetops. Not surprisingly, she was scuba diving before the age of 12 and led her first diving trips as a Dive Master in the Galapagos Marine Reserve when she was 18.
