    ... way across the bay to a rock outcropping where we went for a more exciting snorkel. The rock wall was colourful and there were some fish but what was really exciting was when a few sea lions joined us and we swam around playing with them.

Day 2 animal count: yellow iguanas, turtles, little green lizards with red faces, cats, yellow birds, various grey and black birds, sea birds fishing in the bay, fish and crabs. We left early, 7 am for our diving tour to Seymour Island. Seymour Island is a small island on the north of Isla Baltra. The plan was to dive and snorkel throughout the day and have lunch on board a ...

    ... by a lava river. To top it all off we also saw craters where the lava had come from. Last but not least there were signs of early beginnings of vegetation. Though we had all noticed that it had been a considerably colder night and was potentially also going to be a colder day we quickly realised how hot the day had become. The sun was shining on full blast, the lava was reflecting the heat and there was no wind so that it almost seemed like ...
