Today we explored Bartolome and Sombrero Chino Islets, which are remarkably beautiful with an impressive landscape. During the morning we hiked and snorkeled in Bartolome. For the afternoon we moved to Sombrero Chino, where our guests got the chance to snorkel for the second time in the day, and then go on Zodiac rides at the end of the afternoon.

Today we visited two islands in the center of the archipelago. On Bartholomew, we climbed a wooden staircase to the top of an old cinder cone for a chance to see the famous vista that captures many islands at once, in addition to Pinnacle Rock. In the afternoon, we navigated towards Sombrero Chino, where we had a great time snorkeling from Zodiacs and spotting wildlife. This is the home of a small colony of Galapagos penguins as well as Galapagos sea lions.
