Today, we took full advantage of the twelve hours of sunlight available at these latitudes to explore Floreana, home to numerous visitor sites. We had the opportunity to hike, snorkel, kayak, paddle boarding, and visit the historical and famous Post Office Barrel, a hand-delivery system based on the honor system. We made great memories to relive for years to come.
National Geographic Endeavour II
Today we visited two islands in the center of the archipelago. On Bartholomew, we climbed a wooden staircase to the top of an old cinder cone for a chance to see the famous vista that captures many islands at once, in addition to Pinnacle Rock. In the afternoon, we navigated towards Sombrero Chino, where we had a great time snorkeling from Zodiacs and spotting wildlife. This is the home of a small colony of Galapagos penguins as well as Galapagos sea lions.
