Today our guest explored the westernmost realm of the Galapagos. During the morning, we landed at Punta Espinosa on Fernandina Island to snorkel. We observed countless Galapagos marine iguanas basking along the shoreline as guests explored the island. While snorkeling, guests observed more Galapagos marine iguanas and green sea turtles feeding on seaweed. In the afternoon, guests experienced Punta Vicente Roca on Isabela Island. This site offers an impressive view of a collapsed volcano. The rocky cliffs provide shelter for Galapagos fur seals. They are also a good perch for seabirds like Nazca boobies, brown noddy terns with chicks, flightless cormorants, and Galapagos penguins.
