The Galapagos penguins are the second smallest penguins in the world. For some reason I was certain I wouldn’t see any on this trip. I figured they would be very elusive. Luckily I saw them three times; all three times were off the shores of Isabela. The first time they were swimming as our boat anchored, the second was during a kayak trip around the bay, and the third was from a boat tour around the bay.
I LOVED them.
Intrepid Travel has not let me down once on this trip. I’ve seen pretty much every single animal I thought I might see and more.
They blend so well with the volcanic rocks. How many can you find?
I see nine full penguins and the behind of a 10th one. Let me know if you see more than that.
