Crossing the Equator (twice) in the Galapagos

It was a wonderful day in the Galapagos. We ended up crossing the equator twice, seeing a ton of colorful crabs, blue footed boobies, and dolphins!

The afternoon in the Galapagos today was all about bird watching on Isla Ferdinandina. We boated around to blue footed boobies and more. I’m obsessed with blue footed boobies.

My favorite sail of the trip so far took us across the equator as we sailed around Isabela Island toward Santiago Island. The scenery was breaktaking.

Along the way we saw hundreds of jumping dophins, volcanic calderas, crashing waves, and (as mentioned before) we crossed the equator.

On Isabel Island we were able to see a volcanic caldera and waves violently trashing the coast.  It was a gorgeous, crisp and cool sail before sunset.

After sunset we sailed around Isabela Island and back to the Southern Hemisphere, crossing the equator again.

Giant Land Tortoises from Santa Cruz Island are up next! You do not want to miss the hilarious video I took of them.
