Snorkeling in the Galapagos

On my recent travel to the Galapagos islands, I had a chance to snorkel twice.  Here are some of my photos from the trip!

First, was in a swimming hole called “Las Grietas” –

Next stop was off the coast of Seymour Island

Jumping in, we were met by all these guys!

The rest of the swim was like being in an aquarium:
