There could not be a better way to start our time in the Galapagos than on this island full of unique wildlife and landscapes. This morning, we had an amazing time at one of the most beautiful beaches of the Galapagos, located at Gardner Bay. Some of us enjoyed our first snorkeling activity while others strolled along the soft, sandy shoreline and took pictures of playful sea lions.

After lunch, we repositioned National Geographic Endeavour II at Suarez Point, located on the western site of the island. We went inland for a great walk over boulders to see waved albatrosses, blue-footed boobies, and many more cute animals.
