RABIDA & SANTIAGO
Visit Rábida Island where you can snorkel and kayak. Rábida is a
small island with red volcanic rocks surrounding a beautiful red
sand beach, where there is a colony of sea lions and a pelican
nesting site. The trail leads to a salt water lagoon where shore
birds can be seen. Rábida is considered to be one of the best
snorkeling sites in the Galapagos Island. Take an afternoon
excursion to Puerto Egas, Santiago Island, which has tidal pools
which are home to organisms, including sea urchins, octopus and
starfish. The trail leads to the Fur Sea Lion Grottos, one of the
only places in the islands where these unique animals can be seen.
After the walk, you will have time to swim or snorkel off the
beach, where you will see sea lions, fish and maybe some turtles,
rays and maybe some reef sharks.
