  • Only a small island, to the North of Baltra, but such a stunning concentration of nesting birds! We were wandering among nesting Frigates, stepping over yellow land iguanas, with a huge amount overhead and coastal flying. A wonderful place.
  • Wow, this island had most of the stuff the Galapagos is famous for. Loved all the nesting birds. Iguanas showing the complete life cycle. Many sea lions. There were so many activities on the island it seemed like a Disney park. No food vending or anamatronics.
  • Incredible. If you stop and listen the sounds of the variety of birds, it’s just incredible. If your interested in (mostly) seeing feathered friends....highly recommend.
  • An amazing island unthreatened by humans.
  • Amazing is the word..... actually all islands in the Galapagos are truly amazing. If you are in the area, this is a must. Lots of magnificent bird life, seals, sea lions, lizards and scenery.
