San Cristobal Island

Feb 24, 2018 - National Geographic Islander


It was our last day of expedition aboard the National Geographic Islander we cannot believed all the amazing wild live that we have seen. Today the National Geographic Islander was anchored on San Cristobal Island and we visited Pun Pitt in order to spot the red footed bobby. Also, during our hike on Punta Pitt, we spotted the endemic lava lizard and the endemic mocking bird of San Cristobal Island. After the hike, we had a refreshing moment at the green sandy olivine beach.

Concluding this expedition, we had a wonderful afternoon at Garnerd Bay, which is a long white sandy, beach surrounding with marine iguanas, birds and sea lions.

Ixora Berdonces

Naturalist

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.
