Floreana Island

Nov 05, 2018 - National Geographic Endeavour II

Today we landed early in the morning for a pre-breakfast excursion at Cormorant Point where we hiked around a brackish water lagoon and had a chance to observe American flamingoes and blue-footed boobies from up close. Later in the morning, after our ship repositioned, we snorkeled around Champions Islet after exploring the shoreline aboard our Zodiacs. During lunch, we repositioned to Post Office Bay where we delivered our postcards and then had a chance to kayak and stand up paddleboard in a mangrove area teeming with young sharks, rays and sea turtles.
