Punta Vicente Roca and Punta Espinoza, 7/20/2021, National Geographic Islander

Our day today was full of amazing surprises. The first was the sight of dolphins from the sky deck of the National Geographic Islander. After a delicious breakfast, we went for a Zodiac ride along the shore of Punta Vicente Roca on Isabela Island, where we spotted the second sea lion species of the trip—the Galapagos fur seal. During our morning snorkel, a huge manta ray hovered nearby. In the afternoon, our young explorers learned how animals adapt to their environment by playing “fashion a fish.” We had a remarkable visit to Punta Espinoza on Fernandina Island, where we saw the largest marine iguanas in the Galapagos and had amazing conversations about the natural history and geology of the youngest island. We ended our day with our regular recaps, followed by a delicious dinner served by our talented galley staff onboard the National Geographic Islander.
