Bartolome and Black Turtle Cove
Where the boardwalk ends at Bartolome's highest point we got the classic Galapagos postcard view of Pinnacle Rock and Santiago in the distance.
Helen had to sit it out, but I had some of my best snorkeling in the shadow of Pinnacle Rock later in the morning. I swam among great schools of colorful fish, often against the background of bright orange-red algae on the reefs.
In the afternoon we rode the Zodiaks through the bays and inlets of Black Turtle Cove spotting several sea turtles, rays and sharks.
