Aug 10, 2017 - National Geographic Endeavour II
Today our guests explored Santa Cruz Island. After a delicious breakfast, we landed in Puerto Ayora, which is the homeport of most of the tour boat operations in the Galapagos. As well, this town is where the headquarters of the Galapagos National Park and of the Charles Darwin Research Station are located. Today our guest learned about the iconic giant tortoise restoration project and hiked into giant tortoise territory.
