We started today’s expedition by visiting Fernandina Island. It was a wild visit. We saw a Galapagos snake just next to our feet. A Galapagos hawk captured a baby marine iguana right in front of us, and a crab was bubbling foam as it prepared to shed. Sea lion mothers nursed their babies, and sea turtles swam in the bay. In the afternoon, we visited Punta Vicente Roca and took a Zodiac ride along the coast. We saw Galapagos penguins, many sea turtles, and some Mola mola, known as the second largest fish in the world. Guests enjoyed learning about the geology of the place, and we spotted a flightless cormorant. The Galapagos Islands never stop surprising us. It was a wonderful day aboard National Geographic Endeavor II.
