Punta Pitt and Cerro Brujo

Jul 27, 2018 - National Geographic Endeavour II


Today National Geographic Endeavour II arrived to San Cristobal Island. It is almost the end of this expedition, and just when we start to feel as if we have seen it all, the surprises continue to arise. The morning hike was full of wildlife sightings, and sea lions were resting at the beach ready to play with us during the snorkeling excursion.

Everything was spectacular, amazing views from the top of the mountain, excellent weather and so many things to see. The highlight from today was the red-footed boobies—they were everywhere, nesting in the trees, and some of the juveniles were ready to take off for the first time! For our last excursion of the week, we ended our expedition with a nice and relaxing walk along Cerro Brujo Beach, where the kids enjoyed the waves while sea birds flew overhead.

Ixora Berdonces

Naturalist

Ixora was born in the Galapagos Islands, back when the streets were made of sand and gravel. Void of TV and tablets, her childhood friends and pristine natural surroundings made for an inspiring upbringing. She was always drawn to the ocean and her local environment, with her first adventures taking place underwater, in mangrove estuaries, and perched in treetops. Not surprisingly, she was scuba diving before the age of 12 and led her first diving trips as a Dive Master in the Galapagos Marine Reserve when she was 18.
