Bartolome Island and Sombrero Chino

Jan 04, 2018 - National Geographic Endeavour II

Yesterday night the National Geographic Endeavour II arrived at our next destination called Bartolome Island. The full moon was shining on top of the ocean and we could not wait for a new day of activities!

Thursday arrived and we were ready to visit this amazing place. During the walk we learned about Galapagos geology and we got to the top of the hill to see an amazing scenic view.

Following kayaking, paddleboarding, snorkeling, and Zodiac riding, our day was full of activities. During those activities we were very close to the wildlife and vegetation of the enchanted Island.

Ixora Berdonces


Ixora was born in the Galapagos Islands, back when the streets were made of sand and gravel. Void of TV and tablets, her childhood friends and pristine natural surroundings made for an inspiring upbringing. She was always drawn to the ocean and her local environment, with her first adventures taking place underwater, in mangrove estuaries, and perched in treetops. Not surprisingly, she was scuba diving before the age of 12 and led her first diving trips as a Dive Master in the Galapagos Marine Reserve when she was 18.
