Owners of the Islands

The Galapagos Sea Lions

It was a cab driver in Quito who commented to me that the sea lions of the Galapagos are the “owners of the islands.” I didn’t come across anything to make me think otherwise. Whether you are landing on a beach in a panga, kayaking along the cliffs, or coming in face down with a snorkel, the sea lions are there to greet you and to offer up a play date. They’re not unlike puppies, just bigger.

This guy grabbed onto the rope that was attached to our kayak and took us for a ride.
