Isla Española: 7am start for a walk on the island. Steve, Greta, Stu and Phil (plus Cesar the dinghy pilot) all look surprisingly spritely.
KERRY - After a night of rocking and rolling on the boat,  we arrived at  to Española Island. This Island was much flatter than the previous Island we had visited and was FULL of wildlife. As we arrived at the landing point the sealions were lying on the steps we had to climb up to get onto the island, so we had to avoid them by clambering over the rocks. This island was full of sealions lazing around as well as pelicans, blue footed boobies, marine iguanas, lizards and albatroses. We also saw 2 Galapagos hawks as well as we neared the end of the trail.

Back to the boat for a superb breakfast (the food was excellent on this trip - Edin our chef was so good! We ate like kings all week!) and then off for the morning snorkel. I passed on this one as was feeling stuffed from breakfast, but Andrei and Nicola went.

In the afternoon we spent a few hours at another gorgeous beach called Garnder Bay. I tried to snorkel from here, but the water was not so clear so gave up in the end. The beach was full of sealions lazing around. Then it was time to get back on board and enjoy another fab dinner before an early bedtime.
