Genovesa Island

Sep 14, 2019 - National Geographic Islander


Today we anchored inside a collapsed volcano. The caldera on Genovesa Island looks like a perfect seawater lagoon. It’s located further north from other islands in the area, and with no natural predators, it is a bird’s paradise. Guests kayaked and snorkeled inside the caldera along sea lions and sea turtles. What a unique experience! From sunrise to sun set, we’ve had an excellent time aboard National Geographic Islander.

About the Author

Ixora Berdonces

Naturalist

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.
