Bartolome and Chinese Hat

Mar 12, 2020 - National Geographic Endeavour II

Today we woke up on the island of Bartolome. The excursion on this island started early and we had the chance to see the sunrise before we landed. The hike to the summit was wonderful, nice weather and a great view from the top. After breakfast, some people enjoyed a nice time on the beach and later, everyone went for a snorkeling session. We saw penguins, sharks, reef fish, rays, and more. In the afternoon, we started with another snorkeling session, followed by a Zodiac ride around Chinese Hat. We had a great day here in the Galapagos Islands.
