We’ll spend the week snorkeling with curious sea lions, grazing sea turtles, majestic rays, and an abundance of tropical fish while visiting each of the 4 inhabited islands. Blue-footed boobies, marine iguanas and frigate birds populate each island and up close encounters are common so have your camera ready!
