Penguins by our boat



This morning the tiny Galapagos penguins swam around our boat looking for fish. With their tiny white bellies surrounded by black, I was worried they would get their tuxedos dirty, but they came right up clean as a whistle and we watched one gulp down a fish. The penguins flap their wings underwater and it looks like they're flying. Here in Isla Isabela, we’re anchored in an aquarium with oodles of life surrounding us. We also have four other kid boats and nine kids total all under the age of 11 – so life on Kamaya is wonderful.
