Floreana Island

  • Aboard the National Geographic Endeavour II
  • Galápagos

We woke up at Punta Cormorant and enjoyed an early outing here. We observed the unique vegetation of the island along the trail. Close to the shore there were blue-footed boobies courting and further inland by the brackish water lagoon we got to see flamingos. After a well-deserved breakfast, there were options for Zodiac rides around Champion Islet as well as deep water snorkeling with Galapagos sea lions and colorful fish. Glass bottom boat outings were a delight for our guests; a great opportunity to observe the underwater world of the Galapagos without getting wet!

The afternoon was spent at Post Office Bay, a historical site once used by whalers to send letters. Today it’s used by tourists to send postcards via the tradition of hand delivery. Kayaking and paddleboard options in the calm waters of the Baroness Bay were the perfect end of a fantastic day in paradise.
