Arriving at the Galapagos Islands
Ecuador Travels from the Amazon to Galapagos
After arriving and passing through Island security, we took a short mini-bus ride to ready zodiac rafts which transported us the final distance to our comfortable yacht, the Legend.
Not to let the daylight go to waste, we soon landed on our 1st Island and took a hike up a long stairway to a viewpoint that made the trip well worth it! Bartolomé Island is a small island whose landscape resembles 'moonscape'. From the viewpoint, we all recognized Bartolomé's famous pinnacle peak! Beautiful!
Back to the boat for a welcoming reception, a wonderful dinner, and an educational lecture for what was in store for the next day.
