Located between North Seymour and Baltra Island is the small island of Mosquera. The island consists is a long narrow stretch of white sand, rocks, and tide pools. Created by geological uplift, the island is flat rather than the conical shape of the volcanic islands. Mosquera Island is a great place for snorkeling, strolling on the beach, and enjoying wildlife without the tourist crowds common at many of the more popular islands.
Continue to Fernandina, located to the west of Isabela, which makes it the westernmost island in Galapagos. No foreign species have ever invaded this island, and as a result it claims one of the world's most pristine island ecosystems. On your walk across this island you will pass the largest colony of land iguanas in Galapagos, and if you're lucky and if the water is clear enough, you might see them feed underwater while snorkeling. Continue on your walk and pass a group of lazy sea lions, before arriving at the island's highlight - the flightless cormorant nesting site.
One of the most recognizable Galapagos Islands, Chinese Hat is easy to see why: this islet off of Santiago is shaped like an old-fashioned Chinamanís hat, a gently sloping cone rising out of the clear Galapagos water. Because of its distinctive shape, this island has fascinated visitors as long as they have been coming to Galapagos. Follow the trails and stroll the beaches, spotting Sally Lightfoot crabs, marine iguanas, lava lizards and more. Lucky snorkelers may even see the rare Galapagos penguin here.
