San Cristobal Island, 9/6/2022, National Geographic Islander II

Today we visited the island of San Cristobal. We started our day with a hike at Punta Pitt, where we walked uphill along a beautiful landscape made of tuff. Here we observed the last of the three species of boobies that we can find in the Galapagos, the red-footed booby. To our surprise, we also found nesting blue-footed boobies and chicks. After a delicious lunch, we visited Cerro Brujo, one of the most beautiful beaches found on these islands. This beach was a great place to relax on the last full day of our trip. We spent time walking around and observing the sea lions and a few seabirds feeding along the shore. We ended our day by navigating around Kicker Rock, a tuff cone in the middle of the ocean, just a few miles off the coast of San Cristobal.
