  • Aboard the National Geographic Endeavour II
  • Galápagos

Today we woke up at Punta Cormorant, where we disembarked early for a pre-breakfast natural history walk. We found sea lions basking on the sand and Sally Lightfoot crabs inhabiting lava rocks. We also visited a beach where we were lucky to see Pacific green sea turtle nests and the tracks of recent hatchlings. After breakfast, some guests went for a ride in our glass bottom boat, while others went deep water snorkeling along the shore of this islet where sea lions play.

In the afternoon, some guests enjoyed kayaking and paddleboarding while others went to visit Post Office Bay, where we found an opportunity to talk about the human history of the Galapagos. We ended the day at Post Office Beach. Some guests walked along the beach while others went for a swim.
