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.
0 degrees North:
Up to this point the whole trip had taken place in the Southern Hemisphere. It was pretty funny but the moment we crossed over into the Northern Hemisphere, huge pods of dolphins appeared and started jumping.
The Brits and myself then started trash talking to the Australians (who far outnumbered us) that even the dolphins knew the Northern Hemisphere is cooler
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.
