Bartolome & Chinese Hat, 8/12/2021, National Geographic Endeavour II

Today we woke up just before sunrise. We started the activities with a pre breakfast hike all the way up to the top of Bartolome Island to see one of the most iconic views of the Galapagos Islands. After a warm breakfast, we headed to a beautiful beach where we spotted some Galapagos penguins. Then it was time to start our first snorkeling of the day with clear waters, many fish, and the sandy bottom full of sea stars that made us feel like we were living a dream.

National Geographic Endeavour II moved to a new location during lunch, called Chinese Hat. Here we had our third opportunity of the day to get in the water. This time, the Galapagos penguins were so playful in the water with us; we will all remember this moment for the rest of our lives.
