Swimming About: A Day With Galapagos Penguins in Bartolome

By | Galapagos, Testimonials | No Comments

20 to 24 February 2017 – Encountered Galapagos Penguins in Bartolome

Our cruise aboard the Yacht La Pinta took us on a journey to the island of Bartolome.

This island is famous for several reasons, one of which is the monumental tower of Earth that pokes out into the sky and is known as “The Pinnacle of Bartolome.” Leading up to this pinnacle is a relatively wide stretch of sandy beach. Opposite the pinnacle, and on the other side of the beach, is a volcanic cone that one can climb up to get some fantastic views of the island and the surrounding scenery.

This island is near sea level, and that is why Española Island is dry and arid. On this island it’s very common to find a high level of endemicity present. This means that much of its flora and fauna is unique to the Española Island; this means that there is flora and fauna that cannot be found anywhere else in the world.
