We started the day with a sunrise hike on Bartolome Island. Before we arrived at the landing spot, groups of dolphins surrounded our Zodiac and gave us a show! Then we headed all the way up to the hill to see one of the most iconic views of the Galapagos Islands.

After a delicious breakfast, we had the option to go to a golden sand beach. We enjoyed the sun and swam around with sea lions. Then we got our gear and headed out for deep-water snorkeling.

In the afternoon, we had our second chance of the day to snorkel in crystal waters with penguins, sharks, turtles, and many colorful fish. Before sunset, we explored the area in a Zodiac to look for penguins and wildlife.
