Santiago Island

Sep 19, 2018 - National Geographic Endeavour II


As members of Lindblad Expeditions, we feel proud every time we visit the island of Santiago. After a number of years and contributions, we’ve helped eliminate the feral pigs and goats that had been roaming this island. Today we visited a few visitor sites where the environments have been restored to their original status of centuries ago.

Today we also snorkeled, kayaked, and walked at James Bay and Buccaneer’s Cove.
