Gill and Dave's trip to Peru and the Galapagos Islands travel blog

 

 

 


Friday April 11th – left at 8am and went looking for Penguins. Which we found having some early morning sex! We landed at Sullivan Bay, on Santiago Island, and walked up and over the most recent lava flow which dated back to 1907. As we walked we were looking for what were called pioneer plants, or the first growth on the Island’s volcanic rock.

Our walk ended back at Sullivan Bay for an hours snorkeling before returning to the boat for an early lunch and post lunch snooze.

We then went back to Bartolome to look for turtles but only found old nests. So we went snorkelling again and saw a shark and some more penguins. On the beach we saw a female seal feeding its baby!

Then back to the boat again for a shower and change.

Back to Bartolome to hike to the top of the island over the volcanic ash. From the top there is a panoramic view for miles of many of the other islands and the boats moored below.
