TUESDAY, APRIL 24, 2007. DAY 3--ESPANOLA ISLAND, GALAPAGOS ISLANDS, ECUADOR. Besides seeing the sights pìctured above, Morris took me on a personally guided snorkel tour of a reef. There we encountered several white-tipped reef sharks resting under a small ledge at the ocean bottom. We also saw manta rays, eels, and sea lions at this reef about 100 meters from shore. This snorkeling was the best that I have ever done in the world. Indeed, I didn't expect to do so much snorkeling on this cruise. The snorkelling has been so good that I have decided not to do any scuba diving.
