Tuesday morning and another sexy 6:30 AM wake up call followed by another fantastic buffet breakfast. This morning we visit “North Seymour Island” to see sea lions, marine iguanas, frigate birds and blue footed-boobies. We are able to see the frigate birds and boobies nesting and are lucky enough to see several small chicks. The hike was fairly easy and lasted about 2 hours. We went back to the ship for a buffet lunch.
This afternoon we visited Santa Cruz Island. After a dry landing on “Itabaca Canal” pier we had a 45 minute bus ride to “Primicias” ecological reserve and the “Lava Tunnel”. On the preserve we saw the Giant Galapagos land tortoises. It was a muddy hike but rubber boots were provided. We got back on board for a briefing about tomorrows activities and disembarking procedures followed by a fantastic dinner of Galapagos Lobster. Another absolutely great day.
