Today we enjoyed a wonderful day experiencing the astonishing wildlife of Española, the most eastern island of the Galápagos archipelago. We started with an early kayak session on Gardner Bay, then after breakfast, had our first snorkel exploration of the week. Everyone enjoyed the great visibility and the opportunity to play with juvenile sea lions who were making graceful pirouettes in the water. We also had a nice stroll along a pristine, white sand beach where sea lions and a diversity of endemic birds are part of the landscape. For lunch, we were delighted with a marvelous Ecuadorian buffet, and after that, our certified photo instructor Socrates gave a presentation about wildlife photography in the Galápagos. Later on we sailed to Punta Suarez, where we take one of the most fascinating walks we can experience in the islands. Here, one of the highlights was the waved albatross, the largest bird of the Galápagos. We ended our day with the great joy of having witnessed so much natural beauty.
