Jan 25, 2018 - National Geographic Islander
Today we spent the whole day on Santiago Island. This was the island where Charles Darwin visited for nine days and we followed in his steps! There were early outings at Espumilla beach including kayaking, to natural history walks, and photography walks. It was a delight for our guests to observe the sea birds feeding as well as the symphony of songs performed by Darwin finches and Galapagos mockingbirds! After breakfast the National Geographic Islander was repositioned towards Buccaneers Cove, a site used by pirates and whalers, now a great place for a scenic Zodiac ride and amazing deep water snorkeling. The large school of different species of fish was overwhelming, and Mobulas, reef sharks, and sting rays were spotted too! In the afternoon we visited Puerto Egas, a great place to enjoy the black sandy beach and a nice walk along the coastal area. W returned on board close to sunset and it was another great day in this magical and remote paradise!
