Urbina Bay & Tagus Cove, Isabela Island

Nov 28, 2018 - National Geographic Islander


Today was a fantastic day. We visited Urbina Bay where we were so lucky to find approximately 20 Galapagos giant tortoises and a similar number of Galapagos land iguanas. The geology and wonderful landscape inspired everyone. After walking, guests had the chance to swim in a pristine beach. After, we listened to a lecture about Charles Darwin and then had lunch.

We also visited Tagus Cove and explored this area by snorkeling, Zodiac riding, kayaking, and paddleboarding. No matter which activity was chosen, there was ample chance to see marine creatures everywhere.  We all had a wonderful time full of wild encounters.
