We’ve had an exciting morning on our exploration of the northern side Isabela Island. After breakfast, we crossed the Equatorial line and went on a Zodiac ride along the coast of Ecuador volcano. Later, we participated in underwater activities and went snorkeling with green sea turtles, Galapagos flightless cormorants, and Galapagos marine iguanas.
After a navigation of about two hours we arrived at Fernandina Island; this is the youngest island in the archipelago, and home to several thousand marine iguanas. We had great weather and a gorgeous landscape for our afternoon trail on Punta Espinoza. We encountered more wildlife as we saw Galapagos sea lions, lava lizards, hundreds of marine iguanas, and flightless cormorants.
