A Trip to Isla Isabella

We were up early for two reasons the swells decided around 4 AM to rock the boat and we had to be at the tour office at 7:30. We were in the same boat for the trip to Isabella, and it was about a 2 ½ hour ride each way. We got there at 10:30 and loaded up on our “Bus” for a short trip to an area with white tipped reef sharks, which were about 4-6 feet and some marine iguanas. We also saw turtles and various birds. Then we went to our snorkeling area. The way in was really neat with a boardwalk through the mangroves to a saltwater pool about a 100 yards in diameter. There were lots of small damsel fish and some puffer fish and a penguin swam through to check us out. I think it was the first time my body had been cool since I left PNW. Then it was time for lunch, fish in sauce, rice and coleslaw like substance. It was then time to go see the flamingos and some more tortoises. We were loaded back on the boat by 3 for the ride back. It was a good day except the boat ride total of 5 hours was a little long. It was a good group. They split us in to two groups, English Speaking and Spanish Speaking, with two guides, so things went well.
