We started our day by exploring the Galapagos Islands beneath the surface with a snorkeling outing on Gardner Islet. Here we saw many fish, including stingrays, pufferfish, king angelfish, and yellowtail surgeonfish. Then we headed to Gardner Beach, where we had a relaxing time walking on one of the most beautiful white sand beaches of the archipelago. At noon, we came back to the ship for lunch. While on board, we enjoyed a photography talk, where we learned tips for our Galapagos adventure. During our afternoon outing, we got great shots of blue-footed boobies, Nazca boobies, red-billed tropicbirds, Galapagos hawks, sea lions, marine iguanas, and many others. There are so many unique creatures only found here in the Galapagos Islands.
