Coming ashore: While visiting the Galápagos archipelago, we lived on a cruise ship* and came ashore twice a day via zodiacs (also known as 'pangas'). The cruise ship never docked on the islands.
Here a lava heron greets a load of visitors.
* Our cruise ship was the Celebrity Xpedition. I'm happy to report that the staff, food and facilities were all superb.
