Today, you will cruise to Espanola, the most southern island in the Galapagos. It is also one of the most beautiful. This island is home to a large number of endemic fauna due to its remote location. It is home to nearly all the 12,000 pair of world's waved albatrosses, and it also hosts colonies of blue-footed boobies and masked boobies.
You can find trails from the golden beaches where sea lions swim and marine iguanas move towards the water. These trails will take you through booby colonies and Galapagos doves, mockingbirds, and other wildlife. Bahia Gardner's beautiful beaches of white sandy beach are also worth a visit. They are great for relaxing and swimming. You will find many species of tropical fish such as angelfish and surgeon on the rocks near the coast. You may also see small, white-tipped reef sharks resting on the rocks.
Punta Suarez is also a popular spot in the Galapagos. It is home to many species of wildlife and is a beautiful location. A walk along its trails will lead you to a top viewpoint with a breathtaking view. You may see boobies along the shoreline below you. Fry birds can be seen overhead.

If you are lucky, you might be able to see the intricate courtship rituals of albatrosses before the female chooses her mate for life!
