Genovesa Island

Feb 01, 2019 - National Geographic Endeavour II


We spent our last day anchored inside the caldera of Genovesa Island. This isolated island is the northeastern-most island of the archipelago. Inhabited by hundreds of thousands of birds, this tiny island offered our guests the best up close experience on two walks: Darwin’s Beach and Prince Phillips Steps. This was also our chance to see the red-footed boobies up close. Genovesa is a jewel of the Galapagos. Because it is far from the other islands, we are fortunate to visit this spectacular, enchanted island of birds.
