Isabela Island - Urbina Bay & Tagus Cove, 10/26/2021, National Geographic Endeavour II

We started our morning with a wonderful hike in Urbina Bay. This place is very special because land Iguanas are all over the place, and today was no exception. We saw them digging their borrows and feeding on flowers! After this warm-weather hike, jumping into the water was the best option for some of our guests. The water was just in the right temperature to relax. After this activity, Naturalist Salvador Cazar shared with us a very interesting talk about Galapagos human history and then it was time for the Ecuadorian Lunch, pride of our ship’s galley. We love this moment because it is our opportunity to share our culture and food.

After a deserved siesta, it was time to go kayaking or snorkeling along Tagus Cove. Penguins, sharks, rays, marine iguanas, sea turtles, flightless cormorants, and different kinds of fish swam next to us. Galapagos animals are so calm around humans that we could take all the pictures we want and they stayed still for us. To end the day, we had a perfect sunset with purple colors.
