Teaming with animals!
sty 2020
What an incredible island. Lava fields, marine iguana, hawks, sally light footed crabs, and sea lions were everywhere. We just missed (3-4 days) an active lava flow event but so enjoyed our short visit to the youngest of all the islands. It's raw beauty and natural differences from the other islands added to our experience.

One of the Top Sites of a Galapagos Cruise
lis 2019
This site on Fernandina island, the newest among the Galapagos islands, is teeming with animals: penguins, sea lions, marine iguanas, and birds. We were even attacked by a flightless cormorant who mistakenly assumed that we were swimming towards its nest.
One of the highlights of our cruise.

Largest colony of marine iguanas in the Galapagos!
mar 2019 • Pary
We arrived onto the black lava shores of Punts Espinoza and walk along the beach. It’s where they filmed the snakes attacking the hatching iguanas on Blue Planet. There were thousands of large iguanas everywhere. They were also bigger than anywhere else I had seen in the Galápagos Islands. Fortunately we did not see the snakes but in will happen in a short while! Sea lions, many birds and hawks sightings too.

More Great Galapagos Wildlife!

Upon reaching shore, we were immediately greeted by sea lions. As we hiked along the lava rocky beach, we saw marine iguanas, flightless cormorants and even Galapagos penguins

Like a science fiction movie

In our eight day cruise, this was among our most favorite stops. It provides a sense of remoteness. There are a massive number of iguanas in a scenic landscape. It felt like we were visitors on another planet. There are a lot of crabs and sea lions. We also saw a shark, assorted birds, and a complete whate skeleton. Not many visitors.

Alfred Hitchcock's "The Birds", But With Marine Iguanas Instead of Birds
gru 2016 • Pary
Ecoventura took us to Fernandina Island, the youngest and most pristine of the Galapagos Islands, on their yacht, "The Letty", where they took us on a guided tour at Punta Espineza. We landed surrounded by mangroves and made our way on the lava to an area carpeted with hundreds of Marine Iguanas. This is the largest Marine Iguana colony in the Galapagos Islands. Unfortunately, there were also several dried up corpses lying around due to the victims having eaten an algae poisonous to marine iguanas. There were great photography opportunities with the Marine Iguanas lying on top of each other or looking like they are cuddling one another or hugging or perched up on the rocks with sea lions and birds and crabs surrounding them and the surf crashing behind them. There were also a large number of flightless cormorants who looked rather pathetic with their shrivelled up wings. Parts of the shoreline were also littered with very brilliant and beautiful Sally Lightfoot Carbs. Like everywhere in the Galapagos you get to walk very close to all these creatures. We also went snorkelling but like elsewhere we went in the Galapagos the water was too murky for good photos but you should take your underwater camera anyway since you will still see some spectacular things, you just will not great super photos.

Amazing Landscape full of Lava
wrz 2017 • Dla rodziny
Puntas Espinosa is located at Fernandina Island, The youngest of all and actually there is an active volcano there, that recently erupt again.

As it is a young island all the land is made of solid magma, and lava. The plants there are more like bushes than high jungle trees but is the perfect environment for marine iguanas, sealife, Sea lions and Birds.

One of the most amazing part was walking over the lava fields that look like other planet landscape. When you see it it looks like common soil but when you step is rock solid and when you start walking is hard. You can see diferent type os lava that formed that fields hundreds of years ago. As an Advice get good, conftable and strong shoes or preferable booots because the lava rocks are sharp and in case you step into a sharp rock you will have protection. Anyway there is signed path to walk.

The animals you can see there are also beautiful. I saw Marine Iguanas, marine turtles, lizards, birds, cormorants, etc.

Be sure to get your camera.
