Floreana Island

Jul 16, 2018 - National Geographic Endeavour II

Today we spent the day exploring the northwestern coast of Floreana Island. During an early morning pre-breakfast excursion, we landed at Punta Cormorant where we hiked around a brackish water lagoon and had a chance to see American flamingoes and blue-footed boobies up close. Later on in the morning after our ship repositioned, we snorkeled and went for rides on the  glass-bottom boat around Champions Islet after exploring the shoreline aboard our Zodiacs. During the afternoon we repositioned to Post Office Bay, where after delivering our postcards, we had a chance to kayak and paddleboard in a mangrove area teeming with young sharks, rays and sea turtles.
