We finished a fantastic expedition by visiting the island of Genovesa. Located in the northern part of the archipelago, Genovesa offers a great habitat for seabirds. Here we find the largest colony of red-footed boobies on the planet! I was fortunate to guide guests on a great walk at Darwin Bay, where we observed swallowed-tailed gulls, Nazca boobies, and red-footed boobies. It was awesome to be surrounded by so many birds. The rest of the group went to Prince Philip’s Steps. From the top of the plateau, you get a different perspective of the island. With over a million seabirds, this island is a seabird paradise. Our guests enjoyed a final snorkel along the cliffs of Genovesa, and we deployed our kayaks and paddleboards for a last time! It was a great last day in paradise!
