Right after breakfast, we departed the ship and headed to a fantastic location, Darwin Bay. The bay is located inside the massive caldera of Genovesa Island. We spent the whole morning exploring the mangrove forest, which is inhabited by thousands of birds, including one of the rarest, the red-footed booby. Our guests had a great time and returned to the ship to prepare for snorkeling.


After kayaking in the afternoon, we left the ship to explore “Prince Philip’s Steps.” These collapsed lava rocks are arranged as steps that visitors can use to climb to the top of a cliff. From the top, we observed the unique wildlife inhabiting this land.
