The Galapagos penguin is the only penguin in the world that lives north of the equator.
Most of the part of populations live very near to the equator or the south of it, but this penguin resides a few islands in the Galapagos where they can survive in the northern hemisphere.

Most kinds of penguins live in Antarctica, Southern Africa and the southern more parts of South America, well away from the equator.
Penguins depend on a diet of small fish like mullets and sardines.
They can survive in the Galapagos Islands only because of the different combinations of ocean currents that run cooler water to this area.This gives a rich amount of food to the penguins and the other animals here. Penguins grow here even though it is a tropical location.
This habitat gives desirable requirements for the penguins that do not exist anywhere else in this part of the world.
This lucky swimmer enjoying and exploring a large lagoon at Conche Perla, an isolated beach on Isabela Island. Isabela is known as the largest island in the Galapagos and the most exclusive. The lagoon is the right place of mullet that regularly circle the lagoon in search of smaller fish to eat.
This penguin is not hunting for food and just checking out the swimmer. The curious little fellow made a beeline for him and looked at him from above and below the surface.
He ran away and came back several times, showing off his amazing swimming as he did so.Penguins can tremendously move underwater, seeming to fly by flapping their wings. This penguin spent a minute or so darting back and forth around the man before continuing his search for fish.
It is outstanding feeling when you see a wild penguin in the water, and even more adventurous to have one come within a few inches of your face to give such a close-up view. This swimmer had an amazing experience to have such an unbelievable encounter.
