What a magical day we had today! We saw a Bryde’s whale and a pod of common dolphins even before we started with our daily activities. The snorkeling was fabulous. We swam with green sea turtles, Galapagos penguins, flightless cormorants, lots of different fish — even marine iguanas were in the water with us. The land was abundant too; there were thousands of marine iguanas all over the area we explored today. Galapagos sea lions looked like they were posing for us. The Galapagos hawk was perched on one of the mangroves in the zone, probably looking for its next prey. The whole day was a blessing from nature.
