Bartolome Island and Rabida Island

Sep 03, 2018 - National Geographic Islander


Today was our first full day in Galapagos. Taking full advantage of our expedition, we disembark on a pre-breakfast activity on Bartolome Island. Due to its geology formation and its spectacular views, the Island is one of the most visited places here in the Galapagos.

After a few hours of navigation, we arrived at Rábida Island to continue our Galapagos adventure. This Island has great water activity opportunities such as kayaking, paddleboarding, and snorkeling. To finish our day, we had a stroll along the red sandy beach with Galapagos sea lions, blue-footed bobbies, and pelicans who plunged for food along the coast.
