Santiago Island

Jan 23, 2019 - National Geographic Endeavour II

Today National Geographic Endeavour II visited three different places on Santiago Island. First, we started with pre-breakfast activities along Espumilla Beach, where we spotted lots of wildlife like pelicans, blue-footed boobies, fur seals and more!

After a buffet breakfast, we headed to Buccaneer’s Cove, where we had the opportunity to do several activities like glass-bottom boat riding, deep water snorkeling, kayaking and paddleboarding. This was an amazing journey of exciting activities!

Afterwards, back on board the ship, our crew prepared a delicious Mexican buffet for us, with margaritas on the house!

Finally, we got to Punta Espinoza, where the oceanic conditions prevented us from disembarking, so instead of the hike, our crew prepared a live concert and a magic show just for us. We had a great family time! To end the day, a BBQ dinner was waiting for us!

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.
