Santa Cruz Island, Dragon Hill and Eden

Apr 11, 2018 - National Geographic Endeavour II


Today we visited “Dragon Hill” this place is one of the largest colonies of land iguanas in Santa Cruz. During the hike among Galapagos land iguanas we learnt the progress done on conservation efforts for this species as well as the challenges that remain.

After the hike, we had amazing snorkel at Guy Fawkes islet, followed by a delicious Ecuadorian buffet lunch. We closed the day with kayaks at The Eden Islet, Zodiac driving lessons for our global explorers and sunset sailing around Daphne Mayor.

Africa Berdonces

Naturalist

Africa grew up in the Galápagos Islands where she spent her childhood exploring with her family, surrounded by exquisite nature. She took her first scuba diving lesson with her father off the coast of Sombrero Chino Island when she was just 12 years old. That first dive opened up a new and unexplored part of the natural world to her. Africa became enchanted by local marine life and went on to become a divemaster, working as both a dive guide and naturalist in her beloved islands.
