Today we woke up in front of Sombrero Chino Islet. A pre-breakfast kayaking session was offered for our first activity of the day. For those choosing to sleep in a bit, a second round was provided after breakfast, as well as an optional Zodiac ride to discover the wonders of this protected channel. We saw Galapagos penguins and playful Galapagos sea lions in and out of the water. Snorkeling in Sombrero Chino was like swimming in an enormous aquarium with incredible clear water and abundance of colorful fish!

Our afternoon was spent in Sullivan Bay where we hiked on young lava fields. With the amazing landscape, it’s easy to imagine how life started in our beautiful planet.
