      Day 3

        Espanola

        Journey to Suarez Point to view Blue-footed Boobies, albatrosses and Nazca Boobies. The most famous attraction on Espanola is a magnificent blowhole which spurts water high into the air. Take a two mile hike across the island.

        In the afternoon, travel to Gardner Bay, the breeding site of most of the world´s 12,000 pairs of Waved Albatrosses. Gardner Bay features a large white sandy beach and the reef makes this location ideal for snorkeling and swimming with sea lions.
