San Cristobal Island

Jul 28, 2018 - National Geographic Islander


Today we explored San Cristobal Island along its long leeward side. Starting after breakfast, we landed on the beach at Pitt Point, where we hiked on the eroded ash cones. We also swam and snorkeled amongst frolicking sea lions and explored the coastline aboard our Zodiacs.

During lunchtime, we sailed south towards town with an intermediate stop at the beautiful coralline sandy bay next to Wizard Hill for a last lazy beach stroll.
