We spent the day at Espanola Island, one of the oldest islands in the Galapagos Archipelago. The island hosts a large number of seabirds, and it is the only nesting site of the waved albatross. In the morning, we visited Gardner Bay. This white sand beach is home to Galapagos sea lions, and it is a perfect place to enjoy time with these amazing animals. Then we went snorkeling at Gardner Islet with more playful sea lions! In the afternoon, we visited Punta Suarez, where we observed Nazca boobies. We walked by nesting waved albatrosses and were delighted to see blue-footed boobies, too. A perfect day in paradise!
