Isabela Island

May 01, 2018 - National Geographic Endeavour II


After a short navigation this morning we arrived at Urbina Bay located on the foothills of Alcedo Volcano, there we looked for Galapagos land iguanas and as a surprise, there were some Galapagos land tortoises along path. We finished our walk on a sandy beach where we swam and cooled down a bit.

For the afternoon we explored Tagus Cove, there we went kayaking, snorkeling, paddle boarding and hiking, the landscape of this area was breathtaking and whalers in a regular basis used this cove, some left their names engraved in the cinder walls. Many other people that came here left graffiti, although is illegal to do it now, this site exhibits some of those very old graffiti.
