Dec 23, 2018 - National Geographic Endeavour II
Today, we awoke to the sights and sounds of North Seymour Island. From the ship, we could already spot hundreds of seabirds flying around the island.
As we disembarked, we were greeted by friendly sea lions. During our exploration of the island, we spied many birds at close range. We saw frigatebirds taking care of their young, as well as swallow-tail gulls and a few blue-footed boobies, plunge diving along the coast. From our naturalists, we also learned about the land iguanas we came across.>
During lunch, Captain Eduardo Neira navigated the ship north to Rabida Island. From its red-sand beach, some of us snorkeled in shallow waters. Those who went deeper encountered white-tipped sharks and fur seals. Our day ended with a sunset walk on the beach, accompanied by land birds and sea lions.
