what i'm packing for the galapagos islands

You read here what I'm packing for the first leg of our trip (Machu Picchu hike on the ancient Inca Trail), now going to the equator....still packing light. So what did I pack for spending a few days at sea?

Camelbak Ante Hydration Pack the same one going with me to Machu Picchu. Its big enough to carry my stuff in and I'll never find myself without water. No dehydration is going to slow me down!

Atika Hiking sandals -  These will be good for wet and dry landings. They can go from hiking to snorkeling just like that. I don't want to be wearing any socks on this part of the trip so these should come in handy!


Olympus Tough 860 - waterproof to 50 feet, shock proof to 7 feet and came in a bundle with a 32 GB memory card, case and float strap. I wanted to make sure I had plenty of memory space and batteries. Since my camera and phone are both rechargable, I decided to go with an underwater digital to try to capture the best of the Galapagos Islands.
