Galapagos Islands Blog Day 5 Bartolomé and Sullivan Bay

Overnight we sailed from Genovesa to Bartolomé arriving just after 5 a.m. this morning. We were up and headed to the volcano by 6:30 a.m. The boardwalk on the island is a great morning hike and the view of sunrise from the top is spectacular. There are approximately 365 steps to the top combined with boardwalks and look outs. The walk gives you an up-close look at the eruption power of a volcano. Once at the top you look over the Sullivan Bay and can see the lava flows from a fairly new eruption of only 100 years ago. We returned to our ship for breakfast around 10:30 a.m. then prepared to go snorkelling. 

This evening we made a dry landing on the lava flows in Sullivan Bay. The hike along the lava bed makes for interesting images. The deeper you hike on the flows you can see the lava flow goes on forever and covers most of the island. We set sail just before sunset and anchored at Chinese Hat for sun set and dinner. Another amazing day in the Galapagos. The top map shows our overnight sailing as tomorrow we will be visiting Santa Cruz and the Darwin Research Station, then up to the highlands to see the giant tortoises.
