Today we woke up close to a channel with crystal clear water and black lava fields surrounding us. We explored the channel with water activities, first with a kayak and a Zodiac ride outing and then we jumped in the water for some magical snorkeling.

In the afternoon, we went around Santiago Island, and landed at Sullivan Bay. This very young lava flow occurred just 120 years ago, even Darwin missed it when he visited the Galapagos in 1835. The night ended with a delicious barbecue dinner on the sky deck, laughs, and shared memories among crew and guests of National Geographic Islander!
