The Galapagos is well known for its unique opportunity to have close encounters with wildlife, and today we proved it! We started our day with an early morning walk to Punta Cormorant where we had the chance to capture wonderful images of flamingos and blue-footed boobies displaying interesting behavior. After breakfast, we took our Zodiacs for a ride around Champion Islet, looking for seabirds and incredible landscape. Later, we put our wetsuits to the test and jumped into the water for a great snorkeling experience. After lunch, we enjoyed a presentation by naturalist Socrates Tomalá about Charles Darwin. In the afternoon, we visited the historical Post Office Bay, where people continue the tradition of leaving and collecting post cards from different regions of the world to be hand delivered. The last adventure of the day was a Zodiac ride in Post Office Bay. During this short excursion we found a colorful juvenile flamingo on the beach, and if it was not enough, a Galapagos penguin sitting on a small islet in front of Floreana. Back on board, guests enjoyed a wonderful sunset while sharing some regional wine.
