San Cristóbal Island

  • Aboard the National Geographic Endeavour II
  • Galápagos

Our last full day brings us back to San Cristóbal, the easternmost island of the Enchanted Isles. This stunning island has a variety of amazing landscapes, as well as a high rate of endemism being one of the oldest. In the morning we explored Punta Pitt, located in the northeast part of the island. This was the first outcrop of rock sighted by the crew of the HMS Beagle when it arrived in Galápagos in 1835. In the afternoon, we moved to a new anchorage: Cerro Brujo, where a long and beautiful beach of white sands is home to a large colony of Galápagos sea lions.
