We got back aboard the Sea Lion and headed to South Plaza for a hike. We were greeted by playful sea lion pups swimming by the pier.
We walked across this small island stopping to look at sea lion and iguanas along the way.
We stopped near the cliffs on one side of the island where we could see lots of birds: Nazca boobies, shearwaters with chicks, pelicans and frigatebirds which were manoeuvring impressively trying to get some food off the cliff.
This is a small but very pretty island, and the day was just beautiful! We went back to the boat to find a good place for snorkelling in Punta Carrion. We were a small group this time, which was good because we could do lots of exploring by ourselves.
We saw loads of colourful fish, some in large schools, spotted a shark, and were greeted by a sea turtle swimming nearby – amazing! Then it was back on the boat and to the hotel.
