Fernandina and Isabela Islands, 7/18/2022, National Geographic Endeavour II

  • Aboard the National Geographic Endeavour II
  • Galápagos

These two islands are almost next to each other, and both have active volcanoes. From time to time, we can experience very dramatic geological events in this area. Due to its location, the area has nutrient-rich waters, which is why we can observe the largest populations of marine iguanas and sea turtles.

The area also hosts Galapagos penguins and flightless cormorants, and this is the best place to see many different whale species at this time of year. A good reason to spend two days in this location!
