May 18, 2019 - National Geographic Islander
This was our first full day of expedition, and we enjoyed so much of San Cristobal Island. Our guests had the option to start with a stretching session while enjoying a magnificent view of the area’s distinct landscape. After breakfast, we visited Punta Pitt, where several blue-footed boobies were nesting. We also spotted red-footed and Nazca boobies, frigates, and swallow-tailed gulls. After the hike, we went snorkelling with playful sea lions who curiously approached us. In the afternoon, we sailed south to Cerro Brujo.
Here we did a Zodiac ride along the spectacular cliffscape and then hiked on a pristine white sandy beach. There we saw dozens of resting sea lions, and even some females with their pups nursing. During sunset we navigated close to Kicker Rock, a wonderful geological formation where we enjoyed a wine tasting and the joy of being in such an amazing place with so many great people.
