Espumilla Beach, Buccaneer’s Cove

Sep 20, 2018 - National Geographic Islander


Our day started with a pleasant walk along Espumilla Beach. This pristine beach is one of the best sites to find the Galapagos hawk and blue-footed boobies plunge-diving. After our walk, we came back for breakfast. Later, guests had the option to explore Buccaneer’s Cove either by kayaking, snorkeling, or both! In the afternoon, our photo instructor shared a short presentation about creative shooting modes that could be applied for our afternoon outing. Additionally, we had a presentation about Charles Darwin and his legacy in the Galapagos. We then moved to Puerto Egas, where guests had options of trekking or snorkeling. In the evening, we had a BBQ dinner in the upper deck, with a clear sky and pleasant weather.

We have visited several islands of the western protected area of the Galapagos archipelago in the last four days. Tomorrow we will explore the largest human settlement of the Galapagos, and everyone is already excited and looking forward to our next adventure.
