Day 2: San Cristobal Coast (B,L,D)
Few marine reserves have as much life as the Galapagos – hundreds of marine species, playful sea lions, patrolling sharks, and depending the time of the year, whales – the gentle giants that visit the Islands to raise their offspring. They all congregate in just a few miles of marine waters. On the second day of our tour, we will do some snorkeling at some of the best places that the Galapagos have to offer.
Due to the Galapagos National Park conservation policies, snorkeling sites will vary depending on the day of the week they are visited, thus reducing the concentration of visitors at any one site and better preserving the fragile ecosystem. Visitor sites include Leon Dormido (Kicker Rock), Cerro Brujo, or Punta Pitt, all of them great snorkeling sites filled with life, hundreds of tropical fish, rays, sea lions, and even hammerhead sharks might be spotted at these places. But life is not only underwater – we might see Nazca boobies, blue footed boobies, frigate birds and other marine birds looking for their prey.
After a full day of exploring the coast of San Cristobal, we will return to our lodge for a well deserved night’s sleep.
