Genovesa Island

Apr 13, 2018 - National Geographic Endeavour II


Genovesa, also known as Tower Island, is located in the northeastern realm of the archipelago. The National Geographic Endeavour II was anchored inside the caldera for the entire day, in a bay known as Darwin Bay.

We explored two different sites, Darwin Bay and Prince Phillip steps, and at both sites we got a chance to see large colonies of sea birds, such as great frigatebirds, Nazca boobies, red-footed boobies, and swallow-tailed gulls.
