Fernadina & Isabela Islands

Mar 19, 2018 - National Geographic Endeavour II


Today our guests explored the westernmost realm of the Galapagos. During the morning, the entire group landed and snorkeled at Punta Espinosa, Fernandina Island. The highlights of the morning were the countless Galapagos marine iguanas that were basking in the sun at the shoreline as our guests explored the island. During the morning snorkel, our guests observed green sea turtles feeding on seaweed on their rocks. For the afternoon, everyone went on Zodiac rides to experience Punta Vicente Roca, Isabela Island.  This site offers an impressive view of a collapsed volcano. The rocky cliffs provide shelter for Galapagos fur seals and are a good perch for seabirds like Nazca boobies, brown noody terns with chicks, flightless cormorants and Galapagos penguins.
