Floreana Island

Jan 15, 2019 - National Geographic Islander

National Geographic Islander spent the day exploring northern 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 flamingoes from up close. Later on in the morning after our ship repositioned, we snorkeled around Champion Islet after exploring the shoreline aboard our Zodiacs. 

During the afternoon we repositioned to Post Office Bay. We had a chance to kayak and stand up paddleboard in a mangrove area teeming with young sharks, rays, and sea turtles. Then, we delivered our postcards at the postal barrel. We finished the afternoon with a wine tasting during sunset.
