Santiago Island

Aug 31, 2018 - National Geographic Islander

Today National Geographic Islander anchored near Santiago Island, a lovely place to explore and encounter Galapagos wildlife. Our activities started after breakfast with a Zodiac ride. We kayaked in turquoise water amongst penguins and sea birds.

Later we returned to our primary location, but this time discovered the world beneath the water.  We were surround by fish, penguins, and sea lions. To end the day, our hotel manager had a special BBQ dinner set on the sky deck!

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.
