INCREDIBLE! The wildlife (seabirds and Sea Lions along with Humboldt penguins) is so prolific and active that it is hard to believe. There is far more to see here than there is in The Galapagos Islands. The high speed boat ride to the area is wonderful. We ran into a pod of Dolphins on the way our and the captain stopped the boat to let us enjoy the sights. The islands are very stark because of the lack of rainfall, but they are beautiful in a surreal sense. The rock formations and the blue ocean really make it wonderful. The bird activity adds the life to the area. We were lucky to be able to see the guano collectors in action--it is quite a sight. The work is obviously "not fun" but it is interesting to see something you have read about for years. We were one of the first boats out for the day--the crowds were non existent, but we were told they could be crazy. It was easy for the captain to get the boat into ideal viewing locations. The picture opportunities are almost overwhelming! Prior to our trip, we had no idea this location existed. It is one of the top highlights of the trip--not to be missed!

This is an eye opening experience, but sit on the left side of the boat for better viewing! We saw 1000's of birds and 100's of sea lions. The boat was fine and the weather also.

This is one of my favorite destinations. We were able to observe different types of wildlife at a very close range. Then we went to the museum. Beautiful experience!

We were there on a good weather day, but the ride out is very relaxing. Once there, the landscape is not only rugged but beautiful with an amazing array of birds and sea life. Could have spent the entire day there! Really great trip for people on a short schedule.
