Floreana Island

Dec 19, 2017 - National Geographic Islander


Today we visited the Island of Floreana where we visited three different visitor sites walking, snorkelling, and kayaking. First we landed on Punta Cormorant where we found flamingos, stingrays, and turtles. Later we moved to Champion islet, which is one of the two places where it is possible to find the rare Floreana mockingbirds. The last site on Floreana was the famous Post Office Bay. Here we continued with the whalers’ tradition of hand delivering post cards from visitors coming to these Islands.
