Isla Isabella Galapagos – a spectacular natu

A travel blog entry by oldgumby on Mar 09, 2015

... Isabella itself was more than I imagined. It is a timeless, harsh,
active volcanic landscape, but with incredible vistas and the most diverse and
intriguing wildlife. The pictures will tell much of the story but there is so much

... the last group at the airport we felt our odds were good when the next one came along but looked nervously over our shoulders in case another plane landed.

For the afternoon before we left the island, we were given the option of a day at the beach or a shakedown snorkel trip around a point. The group unanimously opted for the snorkel, and it was good, if a little murky, and very useful in getting ourselves used to what we needed to do. There ...

... by Jorge so we could proceed. The alpha male of this particular herd barked loudly on our arrival but otherwise didn't bother us as we landed to inspect his "harem". This consisted of at least 20 females and innumerable pups, the females mostly lying on the sand or in the shade of low leafless bushes while the young ones played around or took sustenance from their mothers (which they do for about a year after).
