Santa Cruz Island and Eden Island

Jul 31, 2019 - National Geographic Endeavour II


Today National Geographic Endeavour II navigated to the north of Santa Cruz Island. We dropped anchor in front of a very secluded area of Dragon Hill, and we explored this site after breakfast and later we went deep-water snorkel at Guy Fawkes Island.

In the afternoon we visited Eden islet, surrounded by very intense turquoise waters and heavily eroded by the wind, this is also a great spot to observe seabirds perching along the very steep walls of the island.

Later in the afternoon by sunset time we circumnavigated Daphne Major. The light was fantastic and our guests learned about the grants’ work on evolutionary biology based on their research conducted on the island.
