last few days the World ARC fleet have been exploring the island of San
Cristobal including the local provided tours to snorkelling and
wildlife sites on the northern side of this most easterly Galapagos Island. The
World ARC Tour takes crews to see and enjoy the main attraction of this area –
Kicker Rock, which
is famous for its spectacular bird life on high rise cliffs and sea life that
lurks below including turtles, fish, rays and a variety of sharks. When weather
allows, a drift snorkel with the current through the impressive gap of the
rocks gets crews up close and personal to the Galapagos sea life.
Every evening, the Miconia
run nightly happy hours for crews to gather and share stories of their
equatorial crossing but also planning together the next following weeks over a welcomed cold cocktail.
Boats have now started their
movements in between the different islands, and half of the fleet is now
underway or exploring Puerto Villamil on Isabela.
maintenance issues in Panama SY Selene

ARC fleet will than gather again in Santa Cruz with enough time to provision
and refuel, along with the programme organised for this island before
the start of the Leg 4 from Puerto Ayora, Santa Cruz on the 28th February.
