Sail for Leon Dormido, the remains of a lava cone eroded by the sea. The two vertical rocks tower 500 feet above the sea, forming a small channel. Sail through the channel and possibly snorkel between the rocks.
In the afternoon, visit Isla Lobos (Sea Lion Island) to interact with the sea lions which rest on its shores. Home to home to blue-footed boobies, great frigate-birds, brown pelicans, lava gulls, common noddies, yellow warblers and small and medium ground finches, the island is also an ideal location for birders. Snorkel with the sea lions and relax on the beach.
In the morning, visit Santa Fe to snorkel with sea lions and view the plentiful number of birds. Take a trail which passes salt bushes and giant prickly pear cactus.
Voyage to South Plaza Island to view some of the most interesting species of the Galapagos. Several hybrid iguanas are found on the island, the result of crossing a male marine iguana and a female land iguana. Unique to the island, the iguanas are numerous due to the plentiful tuna in the water.

In the morning, visit the Charles Darwin Research Station to learn about tortoise conservation in the Galapagos. Reach out to interact with the tortoises which reside within its corrals.
In the afternoon, transfer to the airport for your connection to the mainland.
This was my first experience with Adventure Life - and I couldn't have been more pleased with the trip. The guides and local staff in both Buenos Aires and Uruguay were terrific - extremely helpful and accommodating. I really enjoyed meeting the friendly staff in Buenos Aires in person (I left my bags with them for the afternoon).
