Punta Dispensa, Espiritu Santo Island

Dec 23, 2017 - National Geographic Sea Bird


This wonderful bay at the southwestern end of Espiritu Santo Island was the choice for today’s activities on the land and in the sea. Our guests and Naturalists explored the hills and flat alluvial valley to find part or the amazing biota of the island, some of it endemic. For example, we observed three endemic black jackrabbits running away from us during the hike in the bushy landscape. Some more guests enjoyed the sea by kayaking or snorkeling around the submerged rocky outcrops, and saw dozens of fishes and invertebrates. This day was not only a day of relaxing, but also for exploration and learning, as it is shown by the plants and animals encountered in the different habitats. Yoga, stretches and massages were included as important activities, and wine and good food on the beach, around a bonfire, crowned this day.
