Floreana Island

Dec 03, 2019 - National Geographic Islander


Today National Geographic Islander visited three different sites in Floreana Island, each offering a completely different experience. We began with a pre breakfast activity along Punta Cormorant, where flamingos were seen flying all over the lagoon! We also observed many blue-footed boobies. After our visit, we jumped into the water to explore and play with the baby sea lions. Later, we visited Post Office Bay and then we went kayaking or Zodiac riding along the coast. We’ve had a fun-filled day that will stay with us for years to come.

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.
