Darwin Bay and Prince Phillip´s Steps

Jul 21, 2018 - National Geographic Islander

On this day, we arrived at Genovesa Island on the northeast realm of the archipelago. We were surprised with a little bit of rain as National Geographic Islander dropped anchor at Darwin Bay. We spent our last day on one of the most beautiful islands and went ashore twice. In the morning we explored Darwin Bay, and in the afternoon, Prince Phillip´s Steps. Today we saw some seabird colonies such as Nazca boobies, red-footed boobies, swallow-tailed gulls, and great frigatebirds.
