We walked up the wooden walkway and soon reached the top of Isla Batolomé. From here, the most iconic views of the Galápagos are all in front of us. Isla Batolomé is shaped like a pear, with a long stalk that runs deep into Sullivan Bay. The pointy Pinnacle Rock are located on one side and are only then revealed in their full glory.
Puerto Egas, Santiago Island. The erosion created many rock stacks along the shore, some of which are more than half a meter high. They have this layered swirling structure. The dark lava stack with the unique shape covering large area as far as the eye can see. The view gives a rather supernatural feeling.
Punta Espinoza, Fernandina Island. It was definitely the most spectacular scene we have ever seen. We were surrounded by nearly 100 dolphins and sea lions speeding forward with us. Usually two or three dolphins were swimming side by side, riding the waves, playing and cheering. They burst out of the sea, drawing a beautiful arc, and then submerged in the water.
Bahía Urbina and Caleta Tagus, Isabela Island. Isabela is the largest island in the Galapagos Islands. Bahía Urbina, where we are in the morning, has the only species of tortoise that survives naturally in the archipelago. Afternoon time in Caleta Tagus, Darwin Lake is a lagoon separated from the bay by a narrow ridge. The lake is in the turquoise color and the branches of Palo Santo trees on the hills like arms embrace the sky. The scenery is very beautiful.
