Today we woke up early for a pre-breakfast walk at Espumilla Beach on Santiago Island. Here we observed bird species, such as blue-footed boobies and brown pelicans. After a delicious breakfast, guests went snorkeling along the shore of Buccaneers’ Cove.

In the afternoon, we visited Puerto Egas, where the shoreline teemed with sea lions playing on the beach and marine iguanas basking on lava rocks. We finished this last full day in the Galapagos Islands with a cocktail in the lounge of National Geographic Islander II.
