Great snorkeling - although our guide at times seemed more interested in taping animals than guiding us to spots to see them.
Love the fish, sea anemones, wonderful urchins.
I followed a sea turtle, swam with sea lions and penguins, dove with sharks (small and large) and saw grey and black stingrays.
Sea Iguana - I saw one swim, too, but way to fast to take a picture. (And watching trumps taking pictures, anyway!)
Endemic Galapagos sea lion swirling the water. We could see them from the hotel, surfing the waves, and snorkeling around them was fun!
The little harbor on Isabella - great place to snorkel, too. There was a huge school of 'feed' fish attracting lots of other animals. Think of penguins, sea lions, pelicans diving.
Blue footed boobies. Yes, that's their name, and there are lots of T-shirts available with these.
One of many sea turtles we saw (including while snorkeling :-) ). What a beautiful sight when they glide through the water.
Boobie with chick.
Flamingos, here! There are said to be around 400 flamingos native on Isabella, and they get their color from shrimp larvae.
Beautiful - but not that eager to move, this one at least. Amazing how slow they move when grazing (on the rocks or under water). Pretty large, this one was at least 1.5 m including tail.
Different dude, similar expression.
Hm. Rocks in the water.
Land iguana. Quite pretty.
Sally Lightfoot crabs - famous for their colorful shells. Lots of black crabs, too, which are super hard to see on all the black lava rocks.
