As our expedition aboard National Geographic Endeavour II continued today, we visited the northwest side of Santa Cruz Island. We started the day by hiking in the beautiful morning light. Iguanas welcomed us as they came out of their burrows to bask in the sun. They do this to warm up and get energy to start their day. Our morning continued with a snorkel session on the shore of Santa Cruz. The day progressed with kayaking and a Zodiac ride in Borrero Bay. Mangroves surround the bay, providing refuge for turtles, baby sharks, and various other species.
