Today we had our official first day; we woke up anchored at Gardner Bay. In the morning it was all about water activities. After enjoying a delicious breakfast we went to enjoy the beach, where some chose to go deep water snorkeling. We had a great time enjoying the sea lions at the beach. In the afternoon we visited Punta Suarez. During our hike we saw Nazca boobies, sea lions, marine iguanas, the Española mockingbird and many other unique species from the island.

Our day started with a very relaxing hike in the morning at Dragon Hill on Santa Cruz Island. We had the chance to spot a few land iguanas on the path and close to their burrows. We also had the opportunity to take a Zodiac ride around the shore of that area and got to see a few blue-footed boobies looking for fish in the ocean. Later, we snorkeled off Guy Fawkes Islet and saw loads of reef fish.
