Today was our last day in the western realm, and we started our expedition at one of my favorite visitors’ sites, Urbina Bay. Alcedo giant tortoises nest here, and we got to see many females and juveniles during our hike. It was a precious moment that many of our guests will cherish forever. After the hike, we had the privilege of hearing Dr. Sylvia Earl speak about, “What Darwin Didn’t See in the Galapagos.” In the afternoon, we continued our adventure in the ocean while swimming with penguins and sea turtles. It was an honor to share this ocean with Dr. Sylvia. Our day ended at the top of Darwin Lake with a breathtaking view of Fernandina Island and a heartwarming sunset!
