Bartholomew and Jervis Islands

Jul 09, 2018 - National Geographic Islander

Today we visited two of the most iconic islands in the Galapagos, known not only for their wildlife but also for their strange and interesting geology. In the morning, we explored a classic eroded tuff cone all the way to the summit on Bartholomew Island and in the afternoon we snorkeled and kayaked along the red-colored shoreline of Jervis Island.
