Santa Cruz Island and Eden Islet

Aug 29, 2018 - National Geographic Endeavour II


Today we explored the northwestern realm of Santa Cruz Island, looking for Galapagos land iguanas on Dragon Hill area. We encountered many land iguanas, pelicans, marine iguanas and Darwin finches. After we finished the walk, everybody returned aboard, and later on some guests went snorkeling from the Zodiacs, while others spent time relaxing and swimming from a nearby beach.

During the afternoon, we went to Eden Islet, where we had different activity options. We offered kayaking along the coast of Santa Cruz or coastal exploration from the Zodiacs. Our young explorers had a chance to learn to drive Zodiacs and had a great time.
