These bad boys are the kings of the Islands. Sharp talons and great eye sight - not to forget how gorgeous they are to photograph! That's my cruise ship in the background! And under the branch you can see TWO sleeping SEA LIONS!

haha - it was pretty incredible! It totally blew my expectations out of the water. We went for our honeymoon - however that was my husband's 2nd time going!!!

haha - thanks! Just over two years! And it was cool - except my husband got food poisoning and was VERY sick for the first half! :( But it still was an experience to remember! Try to go sometime if you can! :D

aww thanks! Yeah - it was perfect! Can you see the sea lion in the background? And the ship in the background is ours. I like how it captured everything! :D

Its great! Your ship is consideraly larger than the one i was on. You could feel EVERY wave!!! The night going from Genovesa to Fernandina was pretty tough! It was great though. Did you get to snorkel?

I was on Celebrity Cruises' "Xpedition" ship - held 93 passengers! It felt like a private yacht with some strangers! Actually it WAS a private yacht that they bought and refurbished. :D

I did not snorkel - my husband did. 2 reasons - it was still a little cold (we were there in June) and because I don't like getting sandy and sticky. Also they said there are sharks - and even though there have not been any attacks I was a little weary - we saw lots of rays too! :(

wow!!! Thanks so much!!! :hug: If you have any questions about going just ask! My husband has been twice and is like a walking tour book. How are you going? On a cruise or private boat? What month are you going? We went in June on Celebrity's Xpedition - it was so nice!! The animals are UNREAL - so close it is awesome!!! We took over 4,000 shots!!!!! :D You will have so much fun!!!
