Today our guest explored the westernmost realm of the Galapagos. During the morning, guests landed and snorkeled at Punta Espinosa, Fernandina Island. The highlights of the morning were the countless Galapagos marine iguanas that basked along the shoreline as our guests explored the island. While snorkeling, our guests observed Galapagos marine iguanas and green sea turtles feeding on seaweed over the rocks. For the afternoon, everybody went on panga rides to experience Punta Vicente Roca, Isabela Island. This site offers an impressive view of a collapsed volcano. The rocky cliffs provide shelter for Galapagos fur seals and are a good perch for seabirds like blue-footed boobies, Nazca boobies, brown noddy terns, flightless cormorants, and Galapagos penguins.
