Today we explored Santa Cruz Island, home to many of our naturalists and home to the most beautiful giant tortoises of the Galapagos Islands. It was a fantastic day for close encounters with all kinds of giants: massive craters, 10-meter-tall daisies, and of course the giant tortoises.

During our first full day into the itinerary, the guests of the National Geographic Endeavour II explored North Seymour Island. In the morning, everybody went on a hike to observe and photograph marine birds like blue-footed boobies and magnificent frigatebirds. During the afternoon, our guests had the chance to snorkel and hike on Rabida Island.
