San Cristobal Island

Jul 15, 2017 - National Geographic Islander


San Cristobal was the last Island we visited this week. We landed on Punta Pitt and Cerro Brujo. This Island has a bit of everything: in the morning we landed on an olivine beach where he had the chance to see the three species of boobies nesting. Also there were the last Galapagos sea lion colonies of the week. The young explorers had fun in the water surrounded by sea lions and volcanoes. Now it is time to go home and keep the islands in our hearts.
