It’s our first full day of expedition on National Geographic Islander. We started our day with a morning hike on North Seymour, which is one of the best islands to observe nesting colonies of frigatebirds, blue-footed boobies, swallow-tailed gulls, and many more species of marine birds. Later in the morning, National Geographic Islander navigated to the beautiful Rabida Island, where we enjoyed an amazing afternoon. Guests swam and snorkeled with sea lions and many different species of reef fish off the red sand beach. We walked to a pond located behind the beach and observed flamingos nesting after more than 20 years on this island.
