Today we visited the administrative capital of the Galapagos Islands, San Cristobal Island. We spent the morning at Punta Pitt, a historical site for nesting red-footed boobies. As we walked along the trail on Punta Pitt, we encountered blue-footed boobies courting, red-footed boobies nesting, as well as marine iguanas and lava lizards also nesting.

For lunch, we had a delicious Galapagos meal. In the afternoon we visited one of the most beautiful beaches in the Galapagos, Cerro Brujo. We ended the day, and our expedition, along Kicker Rock, a beautiful rock and ash formation near San Cristobal Island. This week has been truly magical and our guests will keep Galapagos forever in their hearts!
