Punta Cormorant, Champion and Post Office Bay

Nov 19, 2019 - National Geographic Islander

Early this morning we went for a walk at Punta Cormorant, and observed blue-footed boobies, American flamingos, and Pacific green sea turtles – it was a fantastic morning! After breakfast we went around Champion Islet and encountered more wildlife, Galapagos sea lions, Galapagos shear waters, and brown noddies to name a few. Our guests enjoyed great snorkeling with silvery and colorful fish and in the afternoon, after a visit to Post Office Bay, we went kayaking among the protected waters of Baroness Bay. We saw so many Pacific green sea turtles and white-tipped reef sharks. Another great day in Paradise!
