Jul 30, 2018 - National Geographic Endeavour II
Shrouded by mist and cloudy skies, Floreana does feel like the mystery island. One of four islands visited by Charles Darwin in 1835, it is also one of the few inhabited today. We remained in the natural areas of northern Floreana, and visited Punta Cormorant in the early morning and Post Office Bay in the afternoon. Many endemic and native species were to be found today, but perhaps the sighting of a green sea turtle hatching making the perilous journey from its nest to the waves was a memory never to be forgotten, particularly by our young global explorers.
