Jan 06, 2018 - National Geographic Islander
Today it was the last day of an amazing expedition in the Galapagos archipelago. This island holds the largest population of red footed boobies in the world! It is an incredible place to observe sea birds, such as great frigate birds, Nazca boobies, and swallow tailed gulls. The morning was spent at Darwin bay, a delight for nature photographers, as the birds pose for you. The conditions for deep water snorkeling looked very favorable, so we went to the exposed cliffs and were fortunate to see a hammerhead shark. It was a big one! During the afternoon we enjoyed a great walk at “El Barranco”, where we got to see the short eared owl! It was a fantastic trip and the memories will last a lifetime!
