Day 6Galapagos Cruise to Isla de Lobos
Enjoy breakfast on the catamaran before the first shore excursion to Isla de Lobos. Isla de Lobos is an island named after the sea lions that play on the rocky shores. Look for the cute blue-footed boobies, magnificent frigate birds, brown pelicans, lava gulls, common noddies, yellow warblers and ground finches. After spotting wildlife on land, venture into the ocean for some snorkeling. The clear waters and channels make for some of the best snorkeling in the Galapagos. Swim with friendly sea lions and snap some underwater photos.
Next stop is the Interpretation Center, which opened in 1998 as a phase of the project “Interpretation and Environment Education Project.” Learn about the conservation efforts taken to protect the wildlife. Continue to San Cristobal Island and go on a lovely hike to see land birds like warblers, finches, and mockingbirds. Along the hike look for giant tortoises.
Spend the rest of the evening on the luxury catamaran and reflect on your experiences thus far in the Galapagos Islands.
