Penguin Encounters

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.
