Today is the last day of our expedition in the Galapagos Islands. For our final stop, we voted to visit Genovesa Island. This island is known as the bird island. Here we found Nazca boobies, frigatebirds, owls, and the largest red-footed booby in the world. During our first outing, we observed many different species of marine birds found in two different locations. After that, we had the chance to snorkel and kayak in the collapsed crater of Genovesa Island.
