Today National Geographic Endeavour II visited the island of San Cristobal, home to the political capital of the archipelago. In the morning, we hiked an old tuff cone eroded by water, where there is a small colony of red-footed boobies. Later in the afternoon, we moved to Cerro Brujo with its spectacular beach full of sea lions to have a swim and a stroll along the white sand. To end the day, our ship circumnavigated an outer islet called Kicker Rock to watch the sunset and celebrate another successful cruise.

Our day began with a pre-breakfast climb on Bartholomew Island, where we had the chance to learn about geological features like cinder cones and tuff cones. There are lava flows that date back about 200 years. We enjoyed a snorkeling activity in the same area. Then we moved the ship to another islet called Chinese Hat. We had the option to snorkel or ride in a dinghy to see some Galapagos penguins.
