The Garua' Season is in its 2nd full month and the weather is relatively cool and dry, with sunny or overcast skies with occasional drizzle. The Galapagos seas start to become a bit more rough throughout the month of July.

Galapagos Whales

Sea bird communities are very active (breeding) with Flightless Cormorants performing beautiful courtship rituals and nesting activities on Fernandina Island. If you walk along the shores of Puerto Egas (Santiago Island) you can find American Oystercatchers nesting. Cetaceans (whales & dolphins) are more likely to be observed especially off the southern and western coasts of Isabela Island. Common Gallinules, or Moorhens, nest between May and October and are often seen with their babies following behind.
