Isla de la Plata

all seasons in one day 25 °C

When we were in Puerto Lopez, we went on a terrifying tour with Palo Santo tours to Isla De La Plata. We saw whales, turtles, jellyfish and birds. We even went sea-snorkelling.

On the way there I got seasick because the Pacific ocean was rough. We saw massive turtles and we saw beautiful whales jumping along the side of the boat.

When we got to the island we went on a hike. We saw blue-footed boobies. They made a sound like this: "hoo hoo"on each other´s beaks. We also saw frigate birds. They looked like they had a giant red and a bit of black balloon under their beaks. It´s for getting the best frigate lady to make babies with them.
After the hike, we went snorkelling. When we were snorkelling, we saw jellyfish. Their colours were pink, purple, red, yellow and blue. We also saw fish. I saw a Dory fish and a school of tiny fish. The teachers and TAs were big, but the head teacher was not that big! There was plankton. The jellyfish stung me and the plankton stung me too.

On the journey back, mummy and I were really terrified because of the rough waves. The men were climbing up the ladder without any life jackets on! When the boat stopped, there was something wrong with the engine. The men were trying to fix it with a spoon! One of the men was reading the newspaper. I don´t know how he could have done that!

I would happily do that again, but without the boat ride.

Would you like to go on a boat ride like that?
