Isabela Island

  • Aboard the National Geographic Endeavour II
  • Galápagos

Today we had a fantastic day on Isabela Island. In the morning we visited Urbina Bay, located at the base of Alcedo Volcano, offering a great opportunity to see the Galapagos land iguanas. Many big males warming up along the trail and even several Alcedo giant tortoises were seen. Due to the drizzle of previous days, the plants were all green and with flowers, a rare sight for this time of the year.

Later, National Geographic Endeavour II was repositioned towards Tagus Cove, a place known for Pacific green sea turtles. There was time for kayaking and paddleboarding, and several guests went deep water snorkeling. An invigorating hike to Darwin’s Lake was the perfect end to an incredible day, and our last one on the western part of the Galapagos Archipelago.
