May 13, 2018 - National Geographic Endeavour II
Today was a very special day for all mothers aboard the National Geographic Endeavour II, they were fortunate to spend Mother’s Day on a special place, the Galapagos Islands. We started with an early photographic expedition on North Seymour Island, an uplifted island and bird magnet. We observed many sea birds looking for a mate and taking care of their young and our first land iguanas, sun bathing and foraging for food. In the afternoon, we moved position to Rabida Island, a red island due to high concentrations of iron oxide. On our way to our first snorkeling at Rabida Island, we were surprised by a pod of dolphins that stayed with us jumping and swimming around the zodiacs. We finished a beautiful day on the beautiful red beach of Rabida Island for a sunset beach walk, it was definitely a very special Mother’s Day!
