Today, we get to explore the island of Floreana. The best part of Floreana is its perfect white, sandy beach, where boisterous sea lions proudly show off their fur. We spend about 3-4 hours on the island today, in two different places. There is more snorkel time and more excellent food. In the afternoon, we snorkel with a big gaggle of sea lions. They come straight up to us. Vicky, our naturalist, tells us that they like it when we act like sea lions ourselves. I dive under the water and try to mimic them the best I can. As I go down to dive, one sea lion dives with me and comes up for air at the same time as me. I look over at him and can't believe the synchronicity that just occurred.
