Santiago Island

Aug 08, 2018 - National Geographic Endeavour II

Espumilla beach, Buccaneers Cove, Puerto Egas.

Today National Geographic Endeavour II arrived to the beautiful site of Santiago Island, where we started the day with an early pre-breakfast walk along Espumilla Beach. Here with the company of our National Geographic photo instructor, we had the opportunity to practice getting the perfect shot with sunrise light. Kayaking and paddle-boarding excursions were available for those who wanted to have fun and exercise at the same time. Then, just before lunch, we jumped into the clear waters of Buccaneer’s Cove to explore the underwater world, and for those ones who did not feel like getting wet, we had the option of the glass-bottom boat!  For lunch, the crew on board prepared a delicious Mexican buffet with complimentary margaritas!

To end the day, we enjoyed a relaxing time at the beach, playing with sea lions, while some guests went for a nice walk along Puerto Egas to enjoy the sunset, spotting wildlife along the way.

Ixora Berdonces


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.
