Seymour & Rabida Islands, 12/5/2021, National Geographic Endeavour II

  • Aboard the National Geographic Endeavour II
  • Galápagos

After lunch we navigated to Rabida Island, where jumped in the ocean to snorkel with sea lions and many colorful fish. Our journey closed with a relaxing sunset walk along the red sandy beach. We have had an amazing first full day of exploration aboard National Geographic Endeavour II. We cannot wait to continue exploring the islands and keep collecting memories for the rest of our lives.

 

Today we have started exploring the islands, visiting Seymour. Here we hiked inland and spotted many sea birds like swallow tailed gulls, frigate birds, blue-footed boobies, and Nazca bobbies. We saw many different behaviors; frigate birds courting and dancing, blue-footed boobies flying and eating from the ocean. Meanwhile, female sea lions were all over the shore resting next to their pups.
