Gardner and Punta Espinoza in Espanola Island

Nov 18, 2019 - National Geographic Islander

Today National Geographic Islander is anchored in Espanola Island. We started the day with a snorkeling outing in Gardner Islet for those who wanted a bit of water activity. There was also the option to stroll along a white sand beach with plenty of sea lions as companions! Later, we visited Punta Suarez for a hike along a cliff where we got to see waved albatrosses take off.

We headed back just in time to enjoy a sunset drink. It was an amazing first outing, and a wonderful experience for all.

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.
