Spending the Fourth in the Galapagos

While you may have been spending the July 4th holiday grilling with friends, a few handful of others were exploring the Galapagos Islands with Lindblad Expeditions & National Geographic aboard the National Geographic Islander.

What a way to celebrate America’s birthday and the 54th anniversary of the creation of the Galapagos National Park. “

Guests aboard the National Geographic Islander visited Santiago Island, following Darwin’s footsteps, hiking and kayaking even before breakfast. After breakfast, guests snorkeled at Buccaneers Cove, encountering some white-tipped reef sharks, and many species of fish and sea lions frolicked in the water.

In the afternoon, after an interesting talk about Darwin’s life and his visit to the Galápagos, guests landed on Egas Port, where they enjoyed a fascinating hike, with the varied geology and species endemic only to this island, including lava lizards.
