San Cristobal, Punta Pitt & Cerro Brujo, 11/2/2019, National Geographic Islander

  • Aboard the National Geographic Islander
  • Galápagos

We spent a great morning at Punta Pitt, the most eastern point in the Galapagos Archipelago. Our guests enjoyed a great hike up an eroded tuff cone, the landscape here is just breathtaking! We observed blue-footed boobies along the trail. Red-footed boobies were nesting on the branches of the bushes and flying above us. There was time for snorkeling off the green sandy beach of Punta Pitt, where fish and playful sea lions were with us.

The afternoon was spent at Cerro Brujo, a fantastic white sandy beach, where Galapagos sea lions were resting. Pacific green sea turtles were spotted close to the shore and American oystercatchers were posing for the eager photographers! A fantastic day ended as we sailed by Kicker Rock.
