South Plaza and Santa Fe Islands, 1/16/2020, National Geographic Islander

National Geographic Islander arrived during the first light at South Plaza Island to start our full day of activities in the Galapagos Islands. Upon landing, we were greeted by several marine and land iguanas, some of them even sharing the same rocks. This is a prime example of what makes this island special – the unique combination of these creatures has created a special marine-land iguana hybrid, which we were very luck to see today.

In the afternoon we cruised on Zodiacs along Santa Fe’s shoreline and later took a challenging hike to the top of the island for a spectacular view. Baby sea lions frolicking on white sand and kayaking in the blue water were a few of the highlights from this special day.
