Today we visited the intriguing island of Floreana. We started early, before breakfast, visiting Post Office Bay, where we took part in the hand-delivered mail tradition at the post office barrel set up centuries earlier by whalers. Then it was time for more active adventure with kayaking and paddleboards options around La Loberia. On this amazing excursion, we were surrounded by Galapagos sea lions, Pacific green sea turtles, blue-footed boobies, and brown pelicans. Afterwards we went snorkeling at Champion Islet, where we enjoyed observing colorful fish and playful Galapagos sea lions.

 

The afternoon was spent at Punta Cormorant, where we observed several blue-footed booby chicks, yellow warblers, and a spectacular landscape. It was an incredible day in Paradise!
