After an overnight navigation from the western part of the archipelago, this morning the National Geographic Endeavour II dropped anchor at Espumilla Beach to visit one of the most important nesting grounds for Pacific green sea turtles.

This morning we were very lucky. A few babies were just heading into the ocean just minutes after sunrise. At the same time, blue-footed boobies were plunge diving for fish, alongside brown pelicans and brown noddy terns. It was an incredible sight, and all before breakfast.

Later, we headed for Buccaneer’s Cove for deep-water snorkeling, glass-bottom boat exploration, kayaking, and paddle boarding. After lunch, it was more deep-water snorkeling at Egas Port, where some guests opted for a coastline hike to round up a joyous day.
