North Seymour and Rabida Islands

Oct 13, 2019 - National Geographic Endeavour II


Today National Geographic Endeavour II dropped anchor in the channel between Baltra Island and North Seymour Island. The weather conditions were superb, clear skies and calm seas, our guests truly enjoyed the incredible nature hike on North Seymour Island that featured seabirds, reptiles, sea lions and a very colorful volcanic landscape.

In the afternoon, we arrived at Rabida Island and soon departed for our first exploration of the underwater world of the Galapagos, later we went back to the shore and hiked up to stunning observation points offering amazing views of the red island surrounded by turquoise waters.
