Santa Cruz Island

  • Aboard the National Geographic Endeavour II
  • Galápagos

Today National Geographic Endeavour II arrived early in the morning with the first light of the day to the southern part of Santa Cruz Island, called Academy Bay, in front of the charming town of Puerto Ayora.

Today we spent the whole day focused on the giant tortoises—in the morning we visited the Charles Darwin Research Station and, in the afternoon, the natural reserve El Chato to observe these unique giant reptiles in the wild.
