We spent the day on Isla Floreana where we enjoyed a walk before cooling off with some snorkelling from the beach. The 'Post Office' on the island has a tradition whereby no stamp is required, but customers are expected to collect others' mail to hand deliver it on their onward journey. We were also able to head underground for a walk deep inside a giant lava tube which was very impressive.

In the afternoon we made our way to the north of the island for some snorkelling around Isolete Champion. We then headed past the Devil's Crown before landing at Punta Cormorant on Floreana. Here we spotted our first flamingos, watched egg laying turtles on the beach and saw handfuls of Diamond Rays swimming in the shallows. The vegetation was also different with salt flats and mangroves - another varied and amazing island.
