Underwater : The snorkeling in the Galapagos is unsurpassed!  Although it's on the equator, numerous currents and upwelling keep the water cold (I was comfortable in a 3mm. wet suit, in April), and the marine life is extremely rich.  These are all taken with a small Pentax W60 waterproof point-and-shoot camera.  It took great movies as well.

Tortoises & Sea Turtles : The giant land tortoises, once ubiquitous, are now rarely seen except in the highlands.  We visited them at a preserve, and at the Darwin center, and saw a very few otherwise.  The marine turtles are also here.

Sunsets : Yes, the sun sets every day in the Galapagos, just like everywhere.  Sometimes, the results are dramatic.

Sea Lions : The sea lions are everywhere.  They had no fear, so one could get as close as desired.  They are sometimes curious and playful.  Swimming with them was a blast!

Sagitta : Pix of our ship, the Sagitta, sometimes posing with other boats.  She was a fine boat, and I'd happily travel in here again.  The crew was great, and the food was spectacular!  We were in the Galapagos in early April, 2009.

Landscape, Flora : The Galapagos are volcanic, and mostly arid, so much of the landscape is lava.  There are wonderful surprises, of life within, and growing out of, the lava.

Iguanas, Lizards, Snakes : The iguanas - both land and marine - look fearsome, but are completely harmless.  I love them!
