Feb 27, 2018 - National Geographic Islander
Today we visited the southern island of Floreana. It was a great opportunity for an early walk before breakfast. The weather was fantastic! We saw greater flamingos in the brackish water lagoon and further ahead, as we walked towards the white sandy beach, several tracks of the Pacific green sea turtles were found; eggs were recently laid there. What is more, turtles were mating close to shore. Here just before embarking, we observed blue-footed boobies! Later in the morning, we enjoyed a great Zodiac ride around Champion Islet and here our guests were delighted with a great snorkeling with playful Galapagos sea lions, white tipped reef sharks, and plenty of colorful fish. The afternoon was spent at Post Office Bay, where we exchanged postcards, were amazed with the wildlife around us during kayaking, a spectacular Zodiac ride and easy snorkeling off the beach with sea turtles!
