Today was the first full day of our itinerary. In the morning, we visited North Seymour Island for a hike. We observed and photographed marine birds like blue-footed boobies and frigatebirds. During the afternoon, our guests had the chance to snorkel off the coast of Rabida Island.

Floreana was the first island in the Galapagos colonized by people. Ecuador took possession of the Galapagos in 1832 and established a penal colony on Floreana. When Charles Darwin visited in 1835, he met with some convicts and explored the highlands.
