Mar 20, 2019 - National Geographic Islander
We enjoyed a great day at the western part of the archipelago. The morning was spent at Urbina Bay. Exploration on land came in the form of an extended hike and a shorter nature walk. We observed Galapagos land iguanas, Darwin finches, nesting Galapagos mockingbirds, and Alcedo giant tortoises. There was time for a nice swim at the black sandy beach. Then we repositioned National Geographic Islander toward Tagus Cove. Here our guests enjoyed a wonderful snorkeling along the tuff cones, swimming with Galapagos penguins, flightless cormorants, Galapagos marine iguanas, and playful Galapagos sea lions! Fantastic! Tagus Cove is a must-do for kayaking and paddleboarding. We finished the day with a panoramic tour off the cove by Zodiac, which made for excellent viewing opportunities of the area’s wildlife and breathtaking scenery. Galapagos is surely a once-in-a-lifetime experience if there ever was one!
