Punta Espinoza: Breakfast in the morning. Dry Landing. Punta Espinosa is a jagged promontory of cracked and eroded lava, but the name could also refer to the hundreds of spiny marine iguanas that drape the rocks. Pristine nature under an active volcano and a highlight of any cruise. Flightless cormorants, Galapagos penguins, Galapagos sea lions, waders and the world’s largest colony of marine iguanas thrive on the edge of a barren lava flow. Fine stands of mangroves support yellow warblers, Darwin finches, large billed flycatchers, Galapagos hawks and nesting brown pelicans.
Caleta Tagus: Dry Landing. The site visit Tagus Cove is located west of Darwin volcano on Isabela Island. The route of the trail is about 1800 meters. This was a favorite place for pirates and whalers, there is observed a tradition that has been maintained since that time: the inscription of the names of boats. At the start of the walk, rising and passing the staircase, there is a small cave where we found inscriptions dating from the 1800s.
