  • Galápagos

It is our last full day in the Galapagos Islands aboard National Geographic Islander. We have had an excellent expedition. Today we woke up on Bird Island, one of the largest nesting grounds for boobies, frigatebirds, and many more marine birds. We started the day with a beach walk to observe the abundance of birds. Later in the morning, we all went snorkeling. In the afternoon, we hiked Prince Philip’s Steps. We observed the famous short-eared owl that hunts during the day. It has been an amazing experience with guests aboard National Geographic Islander.
