Today aboard National Geographic Endeavor II we had the opportunity to start the day with a scenic morning walk at Urbina Bay, a black sandy beach located on the rim of Alcedo volcano on Isabela Island. As we walked along the trail, we had close encounters with yellow land iguanas and giant Alcedo tortoises! After the hike, some guests returned to the ship by Zodiac, while others had a refreshing swim from the beach, sharing the space with pelicans that were feeding at the coast. Afterwards, we had a delicious and traditional Ecuadorian buffet lunch, where we learned the proper way to eat ceviche.
ThenNational Geographic Endeavour II moved to Tagus Cove, another location on Isabela Island. In this beautiful and protected cove, guests got the opportunity to paddleboard, kayak and snorkel surrounded by marine life, including curious Galapagos penguins, sea lions and sharks. Then we had the option of a hike to explore Darwin’s Lake view or a Zodiac ride along the cove with a beautiful sunset. A perfect way to end our journey.
