South Plazas 
Our journey to South Plazas Island will begin at the indicated meeting place and time. Plazas, as many call it, has an incredible landscape, and on our arrival to it, 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, the red-billed tropical birds, swallowtailed gulls, brown pelicans, and the impressive frigate bird usually fly 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? 
Carrion Point 
After our lunch onboard the Galaxy Daily, 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 this journey, we will return to the Itabaca Channel, where a bus will be waiting for us to take us to Puerto Ayora's pier, where the adventure of this day ends.
