From Black Turtle Cove to Punta Espinosa
The Galapagos Islands are located in the Pacific Ocean, close to 600 miles off the coast of Ecuador. Imagine yourself in this paradise for nature enthusiasts by reading an excerpt from our tour guide Adam's logbook, written during the trip 11th to 24th of October.
Wednesday 17 October, Black Turtle Cove & Santa Cruz Highlands
Our morning trip with our rubber boats, or "pangas" as they are called here, takes us into the Black Turtle Cove mangrove lagoon. It's like visiting another world. We eat lunch and hike in the highlands of Santa Cruz highlands, among the giant tortoises.
Thursday, October 18, Punta Vicente Roca, Isabela & Punta Espinosa, Fernandina
We visit the wild western islands and travel with our pangas along Isabela's dramatic coast before jumping into the clear waters for snorkeling. Underneath the surface we meet sea gulls, and later we make a landing on the magical island of Fernandina.
The Galapagos Islands are located on the Equator, in the Pacific Ocean, nearly 600 miles off mainland Ecuador. Here we can play with sea lions, swim with penguins and photograph iguanas and giant tortoises. The animals are unafraid of humans and for anyone interested in wildlife, the Galapagos archipelago is a true oasis. Since 2003, we have taken adventurous travellers to this wildlife haven - now it's your turn!
