Floreana Island

Oct 08, 2017 - National Geographic Endeavour II


Today we devoted our whole day to Floreana Island. We started with an early disembarkation to Punta Cormorant. This site gave us the opportunity to enjoy an easy walk along a wonderful forest of Palo Santo trees and to visit two pristine beaches. After this early morning walk, we sailed towards Champion Islet. Here we jumped into our Zodiacs and rode around the whole islet looking for marine birds and amazing geological formations covered with cacti. Later on, it was time to experience the underwater world surrounding Champion Islet. The amazing abundance of fish and marine life of this area is just breathtaking, literally! In the afternoon, we moved on to Post Office Bay. Following an old tradition, here we brought some post cards and collected some others from different travelers that will be hand delivered to our guests back home. We also had the opportunity to explore the Post Office Bay with our kayaks and paddle boards. It was a day of unforgettable experiences and unique wildlife encounters.
