Jun 25, 2019 - National Geographic Endeavour II
Today aboard National Geographic Endeavor II, we had the opportunity to start the day with our morning walk at Urbina Bay, a black sandy beach located on the rim of Alcedo Volcano on Isabela Island. As we walked along the trail, we had close encounters with yellow land iguanas and giant Alcedo tortoises! After the hike, some guests returned to the ship by Zodiac ride, and others had a refreshing swim at Urbina Bay, sharing the space with penguins and pelicans that were feeding at the coast. Today we had a delicious and traditional Ecuadorian buffet lunch, where we learned the proper way to eat ceviche.
Then, National Geographic Endeavour II moved to Tagus Cove, another location on Isabela Island. In this beautiful and protected cove, guests got the opportunity to paddleboard, kayak and snorkel surrounded by marine life, including curious Galapagos penguins and sharks. As a last activity of the day, we had the option either to explore Darwin Lake view on a hike, or to go for a Zodiac ride along the cove with a beautiful sunset. Perfect way to end our journey.
