    HAMMERHEADS! Finally! And about 10 of them over the two dives.

    I took the advice of the two Americans I met on Santa Cruz and dove with Pierre from scuba dragon. He operates a one man band from his house/bungalows 10 minutes walk from town. He was not busy and was not planning on diving today but kindly took me out anyway. Normally he requires at least two divers to warrant a trip.

    Weather was perfect, the swell was up a bit in the open ...

    ... strangle now though. Between barking all night and crowing all morning I got basically no sleep. Good thing I had a 4 hour midday nap...

    The Main Street of town is just gravel, it's a small beach side place with a few restaurants and hotels. Laid back pace with even more relaxed views on opening hours than the other two islands I've visited.

    We were having a whole day on land today and to ensure we weren't going to miss out on a meal, we prepared our own lunch box after breakfast. The dinghy had us on the public dock at 8am and it was no surprise to see sealions and penguins there.

    We boarded a bus to take us to a Giant Tortoise breeding centre. The centre had 931 tortoises from the newly born to older couples kept for breeding. The tortoises are kept in the centre for ...

    We see whales ...

    It was a huge overnight sailing to get to the north of Isabela Island. We got up early before breakfast to see if we could see any whales - it was misty and looked very mysterious, but we didn't see any until later on.

    After breakfast we did a panga ride along the coast of a place called Punta Vicente Roca and then snorkelled along some cliffs. We saw our first flightless cormorant on the cliffs - they are very cute with their stubby little ...

    ... most spectacular, was a group of about 20 golden rays. As usual, there was also an abundance of sea turtles.

    Once on shore, we took a walk on an old lava flow. It was fascinating seeing the formations and being able to imagine the hot lava slowly creeping down from the volcano before solidifying. We would have had views of the Cerro Azul and Sierra Negra volcanoes if it wasn't for them being shrouded in cloud. There was next to no vegetation as far ...
