Today we spent the day visiting Floreana Island. In the morning, we disembarked for an early pre-breakfast visit to Post Office Bay where we had fun learning about the days when whalers came to the Galapagos Islands and established the first post office. This old tradition has continued, and we had the chance to drop off some postcards and take others to deliver ourselves. We also had an incredible snorkeling experience in the clear waters of Champion Islet, where we observed a number of the fish species that are common to these islands, including the white tip reef shark. We ended our visit to this island with a natural history walk at Punta Cormorant, where we had the chance to see blue-footed boobies hunting. We ended the day by enjoying a delicious dinner on the sky deck onboard National Geographic Islander II.
