Fernandina and Isabela Islands

  • Aboard the National Geographic Endeavour II
  • Galápagos

Today our guests explored the westernmost realm of the Galapagos. During the morning, the entire group landed on the beach for snorkeling at Punta Espinosa, Fernandina Island. The highlights of the morning were the countless Galapagos marine iguanas that were basking at the shoreline as our guests explored the island. We also observed many Galapagos marine iguanas and green sea turtles feeding on seaweed over the rocks. For the afternoon, everybody went on panga rides to experience Punta Vicente Roca, Isabela Island. This site offers an impressive view of a collapsed volcano. The rocky cliffs provide a good perch for seabirds like Nazca boobies, flightless cormorants and Galapagos penguins.
