May 24, 2018 - National Geographic Endeavour II
As the sun rose early in the morning, we found ourselves in front of Bartholomew Island in the central realm of Galapagos. We went out onto our Zodiacs and arrived ashore before breakfast to hike to the top of a large cinder cone and from there had an impressive view of Bartholomew’s volcanic landscape. After the hike we went to the beach, on a ride along the coast on the glass bottom boat and also deep water snorkeling from the Zodiacs.
After lunch we headed towards Chinese Hat Islet and on our way we encountered a pod of bottle nosed dolphins that accompanied us for a little while. This afternoon we went snorkeling from the Zodiacs and had the company of Galapagos Penguins, lots of fish, and sea lions. We ended this afternoon with an exciting coastal exploration with all spotting penguins, pelicans, and frigates.
