Easter Island, Chile
- At the sea
We leave the lodge by van to the fishermen's cove in Hanga Roa. From there we take a boat southwest, flanking the coast to see the caves in the area and then observe the cliffs of Rano Kau and surrounding areas. We then go to Motu Kao Kao, where we will flank the area to observe the transparency of the water and the volcanic formations of the islets. The islets are bird sanctuaries, meaning that where we will be able to observe the largest number of bird species on the island.
The waters surrounding the island offer a unique clarity for sea explorations. This is due to low levels of plankton in the area, which also cause a lower number of larger species to be found.
