Today, guests enjoyed observing countless sea turtles while kayaking at Gardner Bay on Española Island. After breakfast, some of us went snorkeling, and we found sea lions, turtles, and plenty of colorful fish. Others opted for a relaxed morning stroll on Gardner Beach, one of the most spectacular beaches on the islands. Lunch was delicious, as always. After a well-deserved nap, our guests put on their hiking shoes and boarded the Zodiac to explore the jewel of the crown: Punta Suarez. We walked along this riverbed-like trail. Sea lions and their newborns were one of the main attractions. We got to see our first waved albatross, a species that only nests on this tiny island of the archipelago. Our afternoon was full of wildlife and happiness, and it was a very emotional experience for most.
