Day 4CORMORANT POINT & CHAMPION ISLET
Begin the day visiting Champion Islet, known for its variety of wildlife like blue lobsters, long nose hawkfish, coral hawkfish, seahorses, and red-lipped batfish. Take a dinghy ride or snorkel to discover these amazing animals for a unique experience.
Then, travel to Cormorant Point, known for its green sand beach. Hike to a brackish lagoon to see the largest flamingo population in the Galapagos. Reach a white-sand beach that is one of the main nesting sites for the green Pacific sea turtles. After relaxing on the beach, head back to the green sand beach to snorkel or swim for an hour with the sea turtles, sea lions, penguins, and white-tipped reef sharks.
Later, visit Post Office Bay, named after Captain James Colnett who placed a wooden barrel to serve as a post office. Today, tourists leave unstamped postcards in the barrel. This is also a great place to snorkel with playful sea lions and sea turtles.
