We were back aboard the Sea Lion for our last trip – this time we sailed to Bartholomew.
On the way there we passed the small islet Daphne, where we could see Nazca boobies nesting. The boat continued its journey and we were soon joined by dolphins that swam right next to us and jumped out of the water – amazing!
After a couple of hours we reached Bartholomew, a young volcanic island that looks very impressive, with jagged rocks contrasting with the deep blue sea and sandy beaches. We were greeted by sea lions on landing as per usual.
We followed the steps up to the highest point of the island, where we had the most breath-taking views.
We then went snorkelling around the Pinnacle, an impressive rock formation which is also an ideal home for lots of fish. We spotted starfish, a colourful parrot fish and – as usual – a reef shark! This was a unique site for snorkelling, a fitting place four our last island trip. And so it was back on the boat and to the hotel.
