Dec 14, 2017 - National Geographic Islander
Today we spent the day at Santiago Island. At Espumilla Beach we enjoyed an easy stroll along the green sandy beach and were captured by the beauty and tranquility of the site. After breakfast, the National Geographic Islander was repositioned towards Buccaneer’s Cove, a historical site used by pirates and whalers. Here, guests enjoyed a Zodiac ride along the coastal area. The geology of the place is quite fascinating—an eroded tuff cone offers wonderful resting places for blue-footed boobies, brown noddy terns, Nazca boobies, Galápagos sea lions and fur seals! It’s also ideal for kayaking and deep water snorkeling too. In the afternoon, we visited Puerto Egas where we enjoyed exploring the intertidal zone, observing and photographing the colorful Sally Lightfoot crabs as well as very young Galápagos sea lions. We were all very happy and sad at the same time, as another day in paradise came to an end!
