Disembark at Bartolome, an island which is largely inhospitable to most plants and wildlife. Hike for half an hour towards the summit of an extinct volcano. Admire lava bombs, spatter, and cinder cones found along the way. At the top, gaze across the island for panoramic views. Snorkel in the clear water with schools of tropical fish and Galapagos penguins or take a ride on the zodiac.

Travel to Sombrero Chino (Chinese Hat), named for its unique rocky shape. Land on shore and walk though a sea lion colony before taking a trail through dramatic volcanic landscape.
