This morning we visited the youngest islands of the Galapagos Archipelago. After breakfast we crossed the equator and enjoyed a Zodiac ride along the coast of Volcano Ecuador. Right afterward, our guests were delighted with a great snorkeling with Pacific green sea turtles, playful Galapagos sea lions, marine iguanas, and flightless cormorants. In the afternoon, we went to the only visitor site of Fernandina Island, Punta Espinoza. The weather was overcast and great for photography. Here we found the largest number of Galapagos marine iguanas and got amazing photos of these ancient reptiles. We had a wonderful opportunity to see the beginning of life—when you see how plants grow out of the dark lava flows, you learn how resilient life is! Galapagos offers our guests to see what Darwin saw: evolution in action.
