San Cristobal Island

Oct 20, 2017 - National Geographic Endeavour II


The last full day was spent at San Cristobal Island. We started the day at the most eastern point of the Galapagos Archipelago knowns as Punta Pitt. Our guests enjoyed a great hike and a Zodiac ride; it was a delight for our guests this close encounter with the blue footed boobies; all nesting in our trail. Another highlight were the red-footed boobies and the spectacular landscape of this eroded tuff cone. In the afternoon, the National Geographic Endeavour II was repositioned towards Cerro Brujo. One of the most beautiful beaches in the world, you have to be there in order to enjoy the pristine place, its powdery white sandy beach and our eager companions the Galapagos sea lions. A phenomenal week ended and the magic of Galapagos will stay in the heart of our guests forever!
