Punta Vicente Roca zodiac excursion, Isabela Island, Galapagos

After lunch, we arrived at Punta Vicente Roca with the Celebrity Expedition. The zodiac boats are prepared and are lowered into the rough sea. For people sensitive to motion sickness, medication is required. Let the adventure begin.

The first part to reach the mountain wall was a bumpy ride. I was already regretting bringing my non waterproof camera. Luckily the equipment survived. We took some nice pictures of the waves breaking against the rocks, seals, nazca boobies and even a penguin.

Na de lunch kwamen we aan met de Celebrity Expedition bij Punta Vicente Roca. Zodiac bootjes werden voorbereid en neergelaten in de ruwe zee. Voor mensen met bewegingsziekte is dit geen eenvoudige trip, medicatie is noodzakelijk. Laat het avontuur beginnen. 

Het eerste deel naar de rotsformaties was heel ruw. Ik vreesde reeds voor mijn niet water bestendige camera. Gelukkig werd het foto materiaal niet beschadigd. We namen enkele mooie foto's van brekende golven, zeehonden, nazca boobies en zelf een pinguïn.

  1. Looks like you captured a Frigate Bird? The pirate birds of the sea. My favorite is the Booby. But what a choppy and frightening adventure. You guys are not scared of anything! And so it should be.
