Los Tuneles, West Coast of Isabela
We were picked up from Beez at nine along with eight others and powered by two one hundred and forty horsepower outboards we sped off along the coast. Alongside was Anita, racing us.
We slowed to allow for a group of manta rays swimming just below the surface. After half an hour Anita stopped beside a rock that looked like a big boot, our driver did a slow circle for us to get some pictures.
On the top were the usual suspects.
Our next stop was after gunning through the surf, through a narrow gap in the rocks and then slowing behind the reef.
Sitting on a rock was a young penguin.
We meandered slowly in amongst the rocks.
Our driver parked and we bimbled over these strange shaped rocks.
A very different experience
A new mangrove takes root.
A turtle swam through.
A sea lion plays.
We had a snorkel for half an hour. Nothing new but quite clear.
ALL IN ALL VERY DIFFERENT TERRAIN
