JAMES BAY, PUERTO EGAS
Nice early morning walk along the shore
Broken lava tunnels form grottos, tidepools, caves
Sharks swimming underwater
Fur Ęseals
Marine iguanas (lots)
Galapagos hawk
Yellow warblers
Oystercatchers
Night heron
2 very special sea lions

SNORKELING HIGHLIGHTS
Swimming through a thick school of fish!
Large banded blenny
Finally figured out that the blue fish guarding nests are male Panama sargent
majors!!!! They are usually gray, but turn a brilliant dark blue when they are nesting.

ISLA RABIDA: Snorkeling highlights
Sea turtles (4!!!! Unless I saw the same one twice, but even 3 is amazing)
Penguins. (These dudes can just fly underwater.)
Boobies diving into the water just in front of us. Bad aim could cause real harm.
Baby sea lion on the beach.
