which meanders leisurely through large colonies of said bird

and nesting Frigate birds.

Day 4: South Plaza Island - 0700-1130. A small island

for California Sea Lion pups. Spot land iguanas, Sally Lightfoot

It was the first island to be colonized by Ecuadorians in 1832.

The main water source is a natural pond that fills up with

rain water during the rainy season. The human population

and their farming techniques has had an adverse effect on

the local flora and fauna. Conservation is now centred on

Floreana Mockingbird.

Galápagos penguins, flightless cormorants, marine iguanas,

pelicans and Sally Lightfoot crabs abound. It is the only island

to have the equator run through it. Vicente Roca Point is

turquoise coves and is rich in marine life - popular with divers

and snorkellers.

Day 8: Santa Cruz (Indefatigable Island) - a full day visit

to the island's capital Puerto Ayora on the Southern shore

from 0700 to 1800. This island has an area of 381 square

Iguana.

marine iguanas, Española lava lizards, hood mockingbirds,

swallow-tailed gulls and blue-footed boobies.
