Today we visited the island of San Cristobal. We started our day with a hike at Punta Pitt, where we walked uphill along a beautiful landscape made out of tuff. Here we could observe the last of the three species of boobies that we can find in the Galapagos, the red-footed booby. To our surprise, we also found blue-footed boobies performing their mating courtship. We ended this hike at the beach, where we could have a refreshing swim.

In the afternoon, after a delicious lunch, we visited Cerro Brujo, one of the most beautiful beaches that we can find on these islands. This beach was a great place to relax on the last full day of our trip, and take one more walk around sea lions and a few sea birds that were feeding along the shore. We ended our day navigating around Kicker Rock, a tuff cone in the middle of the ocean a few miles off the coast of San Cristobal.
