Today we woke up anchored in Sombrero Chino, a pyroclastic cone formation at the foot of James Island. We spent a wonderful morning exploring for penguins. We took a Zodiac tour, kayaked, and enjoyed a marvelous snorkel with sharks, rays, turtles, penguins, and many sea stars and multicolored fish. In the afternoon, we snorkeled again from a tiny beach at Sullivan Bay. Later, we walked on a very new pahoehoe lava field to admire the volcanic formations. We had a great day with a lot of surprises.
