We are halfway through our expedition on National Geographic Endeavour II, and it has been an incredible experience so far. Today we anchored in a place call Punta Cormorant. We started the day with an early wet landing on a green sand beach. The beach has this coloration due to pieces of a mineral named olivine. This mineral is the primary component of the Earth’s upper mantle. As we explored the island, we found blue-footed boobies on the cliffs and flamingos eating in the lagoon. We had the chance to see dolphins later in the morning, and we enjoyed a great kayaking in Baroness Bay with many turtles.
