Punta Vicente Roca

Feb 04, 2020 - National Geographic Islander

We began the day with our expedition leader, Gaby, making an exciting wake-up call: “Dolphins on the starboard side.” What a treat! With cups of coffee or cameras in hand, our guests eagerly watched the show. Later we had breakfast and then headed to the bridge as we were crossing the equator. The morning was spent in Punta Vicente Roca located in the northwest region of this magical archipelago. Here we had the opportunity to snorkel with fur seals, sea turtles, flightless cormorants, and penguins. The afternoon was spent with a large colony of marine iguanas in Fernandina followed by wine tasting on the sun deck! Another wonderful day in the Galapagos Islands.
