Floreana Island

Mar 11, 2019 - National Geographic Endeavour II


National Geographic Endeavour II spent the day exploring the northern end of 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 and blue-footed boobies up close. Later on in the morning, after our ship repositioned, we snorkeled around Champion Islet after exploring the shoreline aboard our Zodiacs. During lunch, we repositioned to Post Office Bay, where after delivering our postcards we had a chance to go kayaking and stand-up paddle-boarding in a mangrove area teeming with young Galapagos sea lions, rays and sea turtles.
