In the morning our guests departed the ship very early to explore the rocky shores of Gardner Bay. After breakfast, some of our travelers left to snorkel in deep waters and some spent time on the beautiful Gardner Beach to swim, snorkel, and relax surrounded by crystal clear waters, pure white sand, and sea lions.

In the afternoon, National Geographic Islander repositioned to Punta Suarez for our hikes in search of wildlife. We offered a long hike to the Galapagos albatross “airport” and a short version of that walk for more stationary wildlife observation at a slower pace.
