Galapagos: Sea Lions
If there’s one citizen that rules the Galapagos, it has to be the sea lions. These gregarious fellows have seemingly colonized every beach, rock, and shore available to them. The animals are curious and unafraid of people. On land, they’re usually just basking in the sun but the real show happens when they enter the water, either swimming or even surfing. A definite highlight of our entire trip was snorkeling with one sea lion and marveling at the underwater acrobatics (see the last video in this post).
