Isabela Island, 8/2/2022, National Geographic Endeavour II

We spent the day at Isabela Island. In the morning, we went to Urbina Bay, located at the base of Alcedo Volcano. We went for a walk and observed Galapagos land iguanas all along the trail. What is more, there were Alcedo giant tortoises. We were lucky to see several big males and even a very young tortoise. In the afternoon, we went to Tagus Cove, where we went deep water snorkeling. We saw flightless cormorants, Galapagos penguins, Pacific green sea turtles, and a horn shark! Many activities were offered, including kayaking, an incredible Zodiac ride, and an invigorating hike to the top of a tuff cone. What an incredible day in paradise!
