Today is our last full day aboard National Geographic Endeavour II. We are visiting the island of Genovesa, locally known as “Bird Island.” Genovesa is the northeastern most island of the archipelago. It’s a volcano that is sinking as it moves to the east. The ship anchored in what was once the volcano’s crater. We explored many different nesting sites for seabirds, including red-footed boobies, Nazca boobies, etc. We also explored the marine life by snorkeling, kayaking, paddleboarding, and taking Zodiac tours along the beautiful basaltic cliffs. We enjoyed unique encounters with the amazing wildlife of the Galapagos Islands.
