Genovesa Island, 5/6/2022, National Geographic Endeavour II

  • Aboard the National Geographic Endeavour II
  • Galápagos

Genovesa Island is one of the northernmost islands and is considered a bird sanctuary. Here we find the largest colony of red-footed boobies on earth. In the morning, we had the chance to see the red-footed boobies up close. We also observed male great frigatebirds displaying their inflated red gular sacks. Mating season in the Galapagos Archipelago is a wonderful time. We observed swallow-tailed gulls all along the trail, and yellow-crowned night herons posed for eager photographers. The last day of our expedition was filled with many activities. Our guests enjoyed kayaking, paddleboarding, and snorkeling. We saved the best for last. It was a fantastic day in paradise.
