Last but by no means least were the islands of Rabida y Cerro Dragon – lots of airborne antics amidst some colourful land-dwellers to round off the island tour nicely.
Snap-lite but still beautiful, the isle of Floreana lies amongst the images below…
It felt like there was a ridiculous amount of wildlife crammed onto Espanola, sea lions, iguanas, waved albatross, Galapagos hawks, blue footed boobies, nazca boobies. A surreal place to visit and possibly my favourite island. Across all the islands, as the animals have no real predators they have no fear of humans and whilst you […]
Espanola was a feast for the senses with so much wildlife all over the island.
San Cristóbal from the patron saint of seafarers, St. Christopher, is the island where we had our first up close encounter with Sea lions. They were lounging everywhere and oblivious to us watching while they frolicked in the sea and cuddled up on the beach in the sun. Very, very cute! Our next stop was […]
A visit to the sea lion colony at La Loberia followed by some time in the water around Kicker rock – what’s not to like?
On reflection the majority of this gallery is the Charles Darwin Research Centre back in Puerto Ayora but there are some snaps of the second Galapagos isle we visited – Isabela. We had nice couple of nights there and I got to swim on my own with a sea lion before our compact camera bit […]

We spent far longer than intended in Guayaquil searching for the elusive sweet deal for the Galapagos. My memories are of a waterfront shopping plaza, a mix of colonial and modern buildings and […]

Do you know what animal rocks? Iguanas rock! Here is a selection of Iguana photos because that was comfortably the best thing about Guayaquil – it’s a perfectly nice place but relatively useless if you’re looking to book a Galapagos Tour. Better to just hop on a flight to the islands and arrange the tour […]
