San Cristobal Island

Dec 30, 2017 - National Geographic Islander


The last day of expedition in the Galapagos was on San Cristobal Island. In the morning we landed in Punta Pitt, where we encountered the last seabird colony of the week, including the rare red footed boobies. Later in the afternoon the National Geographic Islander moved to Cerro Brujo where we landed on a beautiful white-sand beach full of sea lions.
