On the last day of our Galapagos Cruise the Island San Cristobal is on the agenda. The wind had become strong over night and getting to the island in the dinghy or even worse, getting on land, turns out to be quite a challenge.
Hector, our dinghy driver, has a lot of fun in the high waves and tries to surf with the dinghy - smiling pitifully at his colleague in the other dinghy, who takes the long way around the highest waves.
When we get to the island, a hearty jump onto the wet and slippery wooden platform is needed as well as a short run to the end of the platform to avoid being splashed by the big waves, that wash over it.
We all make it save and sound to the shore.
A colony of sea lions with many babies await us. Cuteness overload…
