This morning, your excursion is a zodiac ride to Elizabeth Bay. You begin with a visit to a secluded cove lined with large red mangrove trees sheltering turtles, rays, and shore birds. You motor to the rocky islets known as “Las Marielas,” where a colony of nesting penguins, flightless cormorants, and giant marine iguanas may be found. This afternoon, you have a dry landing at Tagus Cove. Six volcanoes flowing together formed Isabela, the largest Island in Galapagos. During the walk, you discover a salt-water lagoon, a scenic overlook with a spectacular view of the surrounding ocean and neighboring islands, lava fields, and volcanic formations. Graffiti dating back to the 1800's is scrawled on the rocky cliffs. Explore the Coves by Zodiac or in one of our sea kayaks to find Galapagos penguins, boobies, pelicans, and other seabirds. An excellent snorkeling opportunity is offered here after the walk. Following the evening’s briefing and dinner, a sky full of stars draws us out on deck to observe the galaxy.
