San Cristobal- Snorkeling at Kicker Rock
Galapagos and Amazon- Birds, Tortoises and Iguanas

We are going by boat to a snorkeling location, Kicker Rock. We can see it in the distance from shore. I am well prepared with my waterproof camera and short wetsuit. I want as much time as possible in the water with sharks, fish and starfish. It is a drift snorkel so you don't need to use any energy. I am just trying to click every second in order to catch photos of the colorful fish and us. Then I see them the sharks- the Galapagos shark was just below us and there were many reef sharks below on the sand. (Later I find out that I lost all the photos with an equipment malfunction- I am so disappointed.)

Again after I overeat with a delightful lunch on the boat; I am surprised at the next stop. It is a sea lion harem with young sealions and a few very recently born babies. Another great group of photos.
