Carrion Point 
Our Sunday journey will begin with our bus transfer from the meeting point to the Itabaca Channel.
Then, we will board the Galaxy Daily heading to Carrion Point, where our adventure will begin. 
At Carrion Point, we will discover the Galapagos marine fauna while snorkeling. With some luck, we will see white-tip sharks and a great variety of fish, sea turtles, and rays. 
After enjoying our journey at Carrion, we will have a succulent lunch onboard.  

South Plazas Island 
South Plazas Island is located on the east side of Santa Cruz Island. Plazas has an incredible landscape, and on our arrival, we will have a dry landing while sea lions welcome us at the shore. 
We will begin our walk along a path through an Opuntia Cactus forest. Don't be distracted by the landscape beauty because we must watch out for our steps. There are many land iguanas, the smallest species in the archipelago! 
Continuing our tour, we will reach the fantastic, windy cliff. Here we can see the red-billed tropical birds, swallow-tailed gulls, brown pelicans, and the impressive frigate bird usually flying around. The trail meanders along the edge of the ridge for a few hundred meters. 
While we continue our walk, we will find the well-known "single sea lion colony": a heterogeneous collection of male sea lions, mostly elderly, who have lost their territories. Yet, surprisingly, they climb up the cliff via some rocky steps.
Will you be able to spot some of the battle scars and shark bites that many of these lone sea lions have on their bodies?
