Nov 21, 2019 - National Geographic Islander
Today was iguana day! In the morning, we visited a small islet called South Plaza, located in the middle of the archipelago, and home to a healthy population of Galapagos land iguanas. During our hike, we encountered sea birds, iguanas and even a sea lion that had just given birth; it was a beautiful and exciting morning.
In the afternoon our Captain, Gonzalo, repositioned to Santa Fe Island. Along the bay we kayaked and cruised the shore in our Zodiacs, and spotted white-tipped reef sharks, eagle rays, sea lions and sea turtles. Our afternoon ended with a beautiful sunset hike on Santa Fe as we searched for the endemic Santa Fe iguana. It was another magical day in the enchanted islands.
