North Seymour and Rabida Islands, 4/10/2022, National Geographic Endeavour II

Guests onboard National Geographic Endeavour II spent the day exploring both Seymour and Rabida Islands. At North Seymour, some guests chose to explore the island on a hike. We encountered dancing boobies, frigatebirds with inflated membrane pouches, Galapagos sea lions, and Galapagos land and marine iguanas. We also observed swallow-tailed gulls.

We visited Rabida Island in the afternoon for snorkeling activities. Created by the oxidation of iron, red sand beaches are quite rare. After snorkeling, we enjoyed a leisurely walk along the beach. We also visited a brackish lagoon and observed flamingos. Some guests spotted several flamingos flying, a rare sight indeed.
