Isabela and Fernandina Islands, 11/9/2021, National Geographic Islander

  • Aboard the National Geographic Islander
  • Galápagos

Today we woke to the announcement from our expedition leader, Paula, letting us know that a group of striped dolphins was swimming beside the ship. After a delicious breakfast, we went for a Zodiac ride along Volcano Ecuador, a collapsed volcano in the far north part of Isabela Island. Here we also had a snorkel outing, where we saw plenty of Pacific green sea turtles, Galapagos penguins and marine iguanas feeding on the rocky outcrops.

 

In the afternoon, we visited one of the most outstanding areas to see marine iguanas: Punta Espinoza in Fernandina Island. Here we also found a few Galapagos hawks, the top predator in these islands. We finished the day with an amazing sunset and a barbeque dinner on the sky deck onboard National Geographic Islander.
