Sombrero Chino And Santiago Islands, 1/3/2020, National Geographic Islander

  • Aboard the National Geographic Islander
  • Galápagos

We woke up to an active morning anchored in a canal between James and Chinese Hat Island, and with a pre-breakfast stretching session followed by some kayaking on a little white sand beach, we began our day. After breakfast, we had the options of exploring the area on Zodiacs or snorkeling – a very active morning indeed!In the afternoon, National Geographic Islander sailed to Sullivan Bay to walk on pahoehoe lava fields. No two lava fields are alike, and Sullivan Bay is impressive in its diversity – it has every form of lava imaginable as well as imprints of vegetation that were caught in the eruption. When we returned to the ship, we had a tasty barbecue dinner waiting for us on the Sun Deck.

What a beautiful day!
