Bartholomew and Rabida Islands

May 28, 2018 - National Geographic Islander

We started our day exploring Bartholomew Islet on the west coast of Santiago Island. Right after sunrise we made our way to the highest point on the islet to take in the scenery. Conditions for snorkeling where outstanding and our guests took advantage of the opportunity right after breakfast.

During our Ecuadorian feast for lunch we moved to Rabida Island where we had our second snorkeling of the day.

We finished the day walking on Rabida’s red sand beach amongst resting Galapagos sea lions as we watched the sunset.
