Swimming with Sea Lions in the Galapagos

By: Bryan Hoban June 1, 2012

Galapagos Day 3– We took a boat ride on the Narel II to the Island Plazas. We were greater by some seals and land iguanas. We also saw a variety of birds including blue footed and Nazca boobies. We also saw a red-billed tropicbirds, swallow-tailed gulls, Darwin’s finches, lava lizards, sea iguanas, Sally-lightfoot crabs and green turtles. Then off to the La Plazas for some snorkeling, it was quite amazing… We got to swim with four friendly sea lion pups!!! I felt like I was in an episode of planet earth. It was just on of those extraordinary moments where humans we’re interacting with animals in a natural environment.

Another thing about my trip, all of out staff and help have been fantastic and have really made our trip. Galapagos Safari Camp really has something special, the whole atmosphere of the place is so inviting. We had sundowners on this amazing observatory deck and watch the sunset set as everyone recapped the wonderful times we’ve had in the Galapagos.

I think I could spend a lot more time here, unfortunately I leave tomorrow….

Your friendly traveler,

Jonathan
