Post Office Bay in Floreana Island

Sep 10, 2019 - National Geographic Islander

Today began with an early morning walk along Punta Cormorant Beach on Floreana Island. From our vantage point, we were soon immersed in wildlife as we saw the Galapagos Flamingo, blue-footed bobbies, and a beautiful lagoon. After breakfast, it was time to explore the marine life found here. We eagerly headed out on Zodiacs for a ride along Champion Islet and encountered playful sea lions along the way. Kayaking and visiting Post Office Bay were our final relaxing options to end the day.

Ixora Berdonces


Ixora was born in the Galapagos Islands, back when the streets were made of sand and gravel. Void of TV and tablets, her childhood friends and pristine natural surroundings made for an inspiring upbringing. She was always drawn to the ocean and her local environment, with her first adventures taking place underwater, in mangrove estuaries, and perched in treetops. Not surprisingly, she was scuba diving before the age of 12 and led her first diving trips as a Dive Master in the Galapagos Marine Reserve when she was 18.
