Exploring the Galápagos Islands is both an adventure over land as well as in open water. On land, there’s no shortage of sunbathing marine iguanas, sleepy-eyed sea lions, or watchful albatross and boobies, but underwater, the Galápagos Islands are awake and active, and coming to life. During my trip to the Galápagos, I spent each day snorkelling, and every time it offered a different perspective or something new to see. It takes no more than a simple waterproof camera to easily capture the beauty of this unique paradise, hidden just below the water’s surface.
