We landed on Bartholomew Island before breakfast to walk along a wooden trail all the way up a mountain. Four endemic species of settler plants were seen and identified along the path, as well as the odd lava lizard.  After breakfast we snorkeled, rode our Zodiacs, or enjoyed our glass bottomed boat.  We spotted several Galapagos penguins along the shore.

In the afternoon, we visited Chinese Hat Islet, where after the talk about Lucy by Dr. Donald Johansen, we were able to choose between snorkeling and Zodiac rides along the coast.

A day full of activities ends with a BBQ dinner on the Sun Deck of National Geographic Endeavour II in this natural paradise called The Enchanted Islands or, Galapagos.
