We arrived at Darwin Bay via panga from our cruise ship, La Pinta. As the panga arrives into the beach area for a wet landing we were greeted by playful sea lions lounging on the sand. We were guided by our Naturalists along a sandy path close to the shoreline to view an abundance of birds everywhere that you turned to look! There were red footed boobies, great and magnificent frigate birds, Nazca boobies all over. There were plenty of nesting birds in the bushy vegetation. You are very close to the birds, it's truly amazing. If you are a photographer, you will have a field day here! The sea lions and many bright red crabs could be seen near the rocks in the shallow, beautiful blue water. The view from this beach area out into the caldera of Genovesa Island is a magnificent site.
Later in the day, our cruise gave the guests the option of either snorkeling at the beach or kayaking in the blue waters of the caldera. We chose kayaking and totally enjoyed the view along the rocky shoreline looking up to the top of the cliffs and also towards the beach. The water was calm and we had wetsuits on. Great experience!
