Our first full day will be spent on the southeastern island of Espanola, also known as Hood. Even before breakfast, some guests are out and about exploring the coastline by kayak! Later, we all visit Gardner Bay, where we stroll along a dazzling white beach. Some guests also have a go at snorkelling off the beach and they are joined by inquisitive young sea lions. The adventurous guests then head off for snorkelling from Zodiacs. Dawn goes, Richard doesn't.
After lunch back on board, we land at Punta Suarez, one of the richest wildlife locations in Galapagos. Sea lions and iguanas greet us here, and further along a rocky boulder trail we find blue-footed and Nazca boobies, the Galapagos hawk, and .... endemic waved albatrosses!
