Genovesa Island

Sep 01, 2017 - National Geographic Endeavour II

Today we woke up right at the entrance of Darwin Bay located on Genovesa Island. Our activities began after having breakfast and we stayed inside the bay, which is also a collapsed caldera. We had different options for everyone; we went walking, snorkeling, kayaking and paddle boarding here at Genovesa Island that is also the home for the largest colony of red-footed boobies in the planet.
