Floreana

May 20, 2019 - National Geographic Endeavour II


This morning began with an early wakeup call at the amazing Floreana Island. It was a gorgeous morning, clear skies and the perfect light to visit and take photos. As soon as we got to Punta Cormorant, the local blue-footed boobies gave us the best welcome ever, with a spectacular plunge-diving show. Flamingos also awaited our arrival, their pink color casting a striking reflection in the brackish water lagoon. The day continued with a snorkeling session at Champion Islet, fish everywhere and juvenile sea lions playing and hunting. Afterwards, we were treated to a beautiful sunset in Post Office Bay while we went kayaking and paddle-boarding.
