Urbina Bay & Tagus Cove, Isabela Island

  • Aboard the National Geographic Endeavour II
  • Galápagos

Today we continued exploring the majestic island of Isabela, in the western part of the archipelago. In the morning, we went for a hike along the coastline of Alcedo Volcano! The whole area was uplifted somewhat recently; before 1954 it was all under water. We found evidence of this in the rocks of the area, they have shells and tubeworms encrusted in them. Land iguanas were spotted as well, right on the path, so our guests had to walk slowly so that they would disturb! But the best highlight was the giant tortoises, icons of the Galapagos. In the afternoon, we enjoyed the water activities, sunset Zodiac rides and an invigorating hike following Darwin´s footsteps to the top of Tagus Cove.
