We are halfway through our expedition aboard National Geographic Endeavour II in the Enchanted Islands. Today we visit Urbina Bay, located on the western side of Alcedo Volcano on Isabela Island. In the morning we were welcomed on the beach by a raft of penguins, sea turtles, sea lions and pelicans plunging for their food. In this amazing place, tortoises were found walking, resting, and feeding on the trails, where land iguanas basked in the sun. In the afternoon, we went to Tagus Cove, where we explored the shore by kayaking and snorkeling. To end the day, we hiked to the summit of one of the many tuff cones on Darwin Volcano.
