On our sixth day of expedition, we visited Chinese Hat in the morning and Sullivan Bay in the afternoon. During the first part of our day, we navigated to Chinese Hat on Zodiacs in search of Galapagos penguins. We found a very curious and friendly couple, as well as some Galapagos sea lions, brown pelicans and Galapagos hawks. Later, we went snorkeling along the channel between Chinese Hat and Santiago Island. Guests observed many schools of fish as well as marine invertebrates of different kinds all along the coast. After lunch we went ashore and explored an immense lava flow from 1897. This place continues to look quite young, with very little vegetation and its volcanic features intact.
