Santiago Island

Aug 24, 2017 - National Geographic Islander


Today we visited the island of Santiago where we landed at Espumilla Beach, Buccaneer Cove, and Puerto Egas. There were walks among sea lion colonies and snorkeling in caves with sharks. We also had a massive feeding frenzy around our ship, with hundreds of birds diving to steal the fish from tuna.
