AM: Gardner Bay (Española Island) One of the most stunning beaches in the Galapagos. The long, white, sandy beach, lapped by turquoise waters, is home to a colony of Galapagos sea lions. Hood mockingbirds are endemic to this particular island. We can also snorkel here from the beach, in the bay’s shallows.

PM: Punta Suarez (Española Island) is a naturalist’s paradise. The oldest extant island in the archipelago is our only opportunity to commune with the endemic wave albatross during their breeding season between April and December. With luck, we can watch their complex courtship display.
