Genovesa Island

Feb 01, 2020 - National Geographic Islander


We closed our last day of expedition aboard National Geographic Islander in one of the most fascinating places on the planet, Genovesa Island. We had beautiful weather and enjoyed a full day of activities; a pre-breakfast kayaking session, hiking on Gardner Bay, spotting red-footed boobies, Nazca boobies, swallowtail gulls, and sea lions.

After our hike we snorkeled inside the caldera of the Genovesa volcano. Our experience in the underwater world of the Galapagos was beyond words as we encountered several species of fish, rays and some sharks. Our final activity was a hike to “Prince Phillip Steps” where we spotted three Galapagos short-eared owls, more red-footed boobies, Nazca boobies, and frigate birds.

It’s been a fantastic week filled with incredible memories that will stay forever in our hearts.

She took her first scuba diving lesson with her father off the coast of Sombrero Chino Island when she was just 12 years old. That first dive opened up a new and unexplored part of the natural world to her.
