Today is the last day of our expedition, and we are visiting one of the most beautiful places in the Galapagos Islands. First, we took a hike at Darwin’s Bay, where we were surrounded by nature. Birds flew everywhere and nested just beside us. Then we headed for snorkeling in the volcano caldera. We spotted various kinds of fish, and sea lions swam alongside our guests.

During the afternoon, we kayaked along the cliffs and then visited Prince Philip’s Steps. We spotted a short-eared owl on the trail. We were very lucky to observe it from such a close distance.

What a wonderful day aboard National Geographic Islander II.
