Floreana Island

Nov 20, 2018 - National Geographic Islander

National Geographic Islander spent the day exploring the north-western coast of Floreana Island. During an early morning pre-breakfast excursion, we landed at Cormorant Point where we hiked around a brackish water lagoon and had a chance to observe American flamingos and blue-footed boobies up close. Later in the morning, after our ship repositioned, we snorkeled around Champions Islet after exploring the shoreline aboard our Zodiacs. During the afternoon, we repositioned to Post Office Bay where, after delivering our postcards, we had a chance to kayak and do some stand-up paddleboarding in a mangrove area teeming with young sharks, rays, and sea turtles. Some of our guests even had the opportunity to spot the first Galapagos penguins of the trip.
