Plaza Island & Santa Fe, 4/7/2022, National Geographic Islander

  • Aboard the National Geographic Islander
  • Galápagos

We started our expedition with a pre-breakfast hike on Plaza Island today. Galapagos sea lions, many seabirds, Galapagos marine iguanas, and land iguanas surrounded us. This is a very small islet, but there are many animals to see. After breakfast, the weather was so nice that we jumped off the ship for a swim. Everyone had so much fun.


We arrived to Santa Fe Island. We enjoyed our first round of kayaking and snorkeling in a beautiful bay with many sea turtles and baby sea lions. To end the day, we hiked along the island and spotted our third iguana species of the day, the Santa Fe land iguana.
