Genovesa Island (Isla Genovesa) Tours

Genovesa Island (Isla Genovesa)
Though relatively small, Genovesa Island (Isla Genovesa) is one of the most interesting in the Galapagos chain. Composed entirely out of a shield volcano, the horseshoe-shaped island is home to such geologic wonders such as the Great Darwin Bay, which was formed out of a collapsed volcanic structure, and Lake Arcturus, a salt water crater lake that lies at the center of the island. There are unique diving opportunities at both landmarks, so if you’re looking to get in the water, do not miss the chance to see sea lions, seals, or even a Hammerhead shark in their natural habitats.

Genovesa is not only for water-lovers, however. Also known as Bird Island, it is home to an incredible amount and variety of bird colonies, including Blue-footed Boobies, storm petrels, Swallow-tailed Gulls, and Galapagos mockingbirds. Follow the path know as Prince Philip’s Steps that leads through the seabirds colonies’ homes.

Practical Info
