Today’s highlight was snorkeling along the coast of Tagus Cove on Isabela Island. This is a famous anchorage where not only the ship ‘Beagle’ on which Darwin travelled anchored, but many other ships over the generations have made a stopover. The cliffs of this cove drop straight into the sea and offer fabulous snorkeling with Green Sea Turtles, Flightless Cormorants, Galapagos Penguins, and the ubiquitous Galapagos Sea Lions.
One sea lion in particular was very relaxed and curious and approached me many times, taking a close look at the dome port on my camera housing, allowing me to get the shot above.
