Santiago Island, 7/7/2022, National Geographic Islander

The last day of our expedition brought us to Santiago Island; here Charles Darwin spent nine days on land walking and exploring, and we were following his footsteps. In the morning, we visited the beautiful beach of Espumilla. An easy stroll along the mangroves and soft sand was offered before breakfast. We observed blue-footed boobies diving and Galapagos hawks. Afterwards, we enjoyed kayaking at Buccaneer’s Cove with great weather conditions: the sea was smooth, and the water was crystal clear. It was a great opportunity for deep water snorkeling with colorful fish and huge schools of sardines and black striped salemas. The afternoon brought us to Puerto Egas, a great place to enjoy time at the black, sandy beach. We also offered an optional amazing hike along the coastal area. We became amazed explorers, as Galapagos is a learning experience!
