James Island

Jul 12, 2017 - National Geographic Endeavour II

Today the National Geographic Endeavour II anchors in front of one of the few Islands visited by Charles Darwin in 1835. This visitor site is known as Espumilla Bay, referring to the froth that forms along the shore due to the heavy wave action. We have an early hike here and kayak. After breakfast we reposition to Buccaneer’s Cove where we deploy our zodiacs and glass bottom boat for deep-water snorkel and interpretation of the underwater realm on the Glass Bottom Boat. After lunch we move to yet another visitor site know as Puerto Egas, here our guests enjoy the beach before going for hike along the intertidal zone of South James Bay.
