Nov 18, 2018 - National Geographic Endeavour II
Today was our first full day of exploration in the islands! A short journey, all things considered, from the island of arrival, San Cristobal. The morning started off well, with many of our guests getting wet—some doing the full immersion into 71-degree water for deep-water snorkeling, others learning, practicing off the beach first. Galapagos sea lions were the stars of the day, both morning and afternoon, in the water and out.
But seabirds were everywhere, overhead; Nazca boobies waved albatross, Frigatebirds, red-billed tropicbirds. Then there were the land birds, some endemic to the island of Espanola, off in the southeastern corner of the archipelago. Reptiles as well! Endemics! Unique to just this one little island in all the world. How fortunate we are to be here,
