Today we woke up at Chinese Hat in Santiago Island. Some guests went for a pre-breakfast stretch class in the nearby beautiful sandy beach. After a delicious breakfast, we disembarked for a Zodiac ride, followed by a snorkeling session along the shore of Santiago Island. The great visibility today allowed us to see plenty of wildlife, including Galapagos penguins, sea lions, whitetip reef sharks, and many other species of fish.

In the afternoon while some guests went for a walk on Sullivan Bay’s lava flow, others took a second snorkeling opportunity in the hopes of seeing a group of penguins wandering along the coast. We ended the day on the sky deck of National Geographic Islander appreciating the sunset while wine tasting.
