As we get closer to the end of our adventure on board National Geographic Islander II, we woke up and circumnavigated Roca Redonda, a flat-topped islet on the north side of Isabela. Considered a newer island, it holds a great abundance of marine birds. We continued our day with an equatorial crossing ceremony for our new shellbacks, and we ended the morning by exploring the wonders of Punta Vicente Roca, located at the mouth of the seahorse-shaped island.

Late in the day, we made a dry landing on Punta Espinoza, a peninsula formed from the slopes of La Cumbre Volcano, an active volcano that created one of the youngest islands in the Galapagos archipelago.
