Santiago Island

Jan 10, 2019 - National Geographic Islander

National Geographic Islander was right off of Santiago Island this morning. We started our day with a pre-breakfast walk on Espumilla Beach, where we saw lot of wildlife very close to us. After a delicious buffet breakfast, we had the opportunity to choose either a Zodiac ride or snorkeling.

Later, the ship moved to Buccaneers Cove where we had a sunset walk surrounded by baby sea lions all over the place. We disembarked on Puerto Egas where we had a nice walk along the coast looking for wildlife and vegetation to photograph. To end the day, our crew had a BBQ dinner surprise for us. This was another exciting day aboard National Geographic Islander.

Ixora Berdonces


Ixora was born in the Galapagos Islands, back when the streets were made of sand and gravel. Void of TV and tablets, her childhood friends and pristine natural surroundings made for an inspiring upbringing. She was always drawn to the ocean and her local environment, with her first adventures taking place underwater, in mangrove estuaries, and perched in treetops. Not surprisingly, she was scuba diving before the age of 12 and led her first diving trips as a Dive Master in the Galapagos Marine Reserve when she was 18.
