Genovesa Island and Darwin's Bay, 7/30/2022, National Geographic Islander

This was our last full day on the Galapagos Islands, and we visited one of the most beautiful sites to spot seabirds. We landed very early in the morning in Darwin’s Bay. Here, red-footed boobies, Nazca boobies, swallow-tailed gulls, and many other seabirds surrounded us. We headed off for snorkeling, kayaking, and paddleboarding with sea lions and manta rays!

During the afternoon, we went to Prince Philip’s Steps for a chance to spot the short-eared owl, and guess what? We saw three of them, each closer to us than the other.

To end this amazing day, we had a wine tasting at sunset.
