Bartolome Island

Next up – Batolome! This is a smaller volcanic cone east of the larger Santiago Island. The cone is easy to climb and the views are outstanding. The island is famous for its’ Pinnacle Rock, the distinctive characteristic of Bartolome, and the most representative landmark of the Galapagos. Our hikers went ashore to climb to the top of the island – 370′ – for a wonderful volcanic view of the whole island and Pinnacle Rock. The rest enjoyed a panga ride, a beach landing and later snorkeling in rather rough seas. The latter adventure – done by few – was rewarding for an experience watching a group of penguins swimming around and under the panga.
