Aug 20, 2018 - National Geographic Endeavour II
Today our guests explored the westernmost realm of the Galapagos. First thing in the morning, the entire group landed on the beach to go snorkeling at Punta Espinosa, Fernandina Island. The highlights of the morning were the countless Galapagos marine iguanas that were basking at the shoreline as our guests explored the island. While snorkeling our guests observed many Pacific green sea turtles feeding on seaweed over the rocks. For the afternoon, everybody went out for Zodiac rides to experience Punta Vicente Roca, Isabela Island. This site offers an impressive view of a collapsed volcano. The rocky cliffs provide shelter for Galapagos fur seals and are a good perch for seabirds like Nazca boobies, flightless cormorants and Galapagos penguins.
