    Santa cruz, Galapogus

    December 17, 2016 in Ecuador

    We spent 3 days in Santa Cruz before heading off on a boat cruise. From the moment you arrive nature hits you in the face. The island is dry around the edges but lush in the middle. As you drive across the island from the airport you get a good chance to see it. In the middle giant 150 yr old tortoises walk around. They are everywhere. After finding accomodation in Santa Cruz we went off to the Charles Darwin research center. It was good but we expected it to be bigger and more significant, however just walking around anywhere is fun as there are iguanas, sealions everywhere and loads of birds and sealife.
    Over the 3 days we visited tortuga beach for a surf, snorkeled in a rift and snorkeled at issabella island. It was all very fun but we were pumped for our boat trip.

    boat life pt1

    December 20, 2016 in Ecuador

    The boat tour started rather slow. Turns out the first stop is Santa Cruz which is where we have been for the last few nights.

    We saw 2 massive volcanic creators, visited a tortoise ranch and walked through some lava tunnels.
    There were 10 people on the boat and I was the second oldest ( not what we expected). Every one was very cool and I was the first to jump off the roof of the boat.

    After driving through the night we arrived at st James Bay. We walked along the rocks for a while and wow. It's just amazing! Sea lions iguanas of all sorts and manta rays in the distance. What's amazing is that all the animals aren't worried about humans. You can find yourself very very close to everything. We even saw a shark attack a sealion. We then went snorkeling and were completely blown away. Sharks, turtles, fish and sealions. There were so many turtles you couldn't help but bump into them while swimming.

    In the afternoon we had another beach walk at a different location and a snorkel at buccaneer Bay. Saw sharks and a eagle ray along with plenty of fish and sealions.

    boat life pt 2

    December 21, 2016 in Ecuador

    Woke up at st Bartholomew island. Hiked a volcano, saw a couple of penguins, did some posing with an amazing backdrop followed by a snorkel. We saw a bunch of sharks, fish etc and swam though some rock tunnels.
    In the arvo we walked around a lava field while it's probably pretty boring the people we were with are a lot of fun and we enjoyed posing for funny photos. The Americans on the boat brought Santa hats for all (Cheers). As you might expect we had a snorkel followed by a huge dinner of lobster.Read more
