Today we visited the small islet of South Plaza for an excellent opportunity to spot Galapagos land iguanas, and after lunch, sailed south to Santa Fe Island for some kayaking and hiking. We hesitated to leave the inquisitive sea lion pups we encountered after our wet landing to move further inland. This decision proved fruitful though, as we saw many rare Santa Fe land iguanas basking on rocks along our trail, and even the very elusive “hamster-like” Santa Fe rice rat.
