The island is home to countless sea lions, blue-footed boobies, great frigate-birds, brown pelicans, lava gulls, common noddies, yellow warblers and small and medium ground finches. The clear water of the area sports wonderful snorkeling and opportunities to swim with the sea lions. At Kicker Rock, swim with reef fish in the channel and glimpse hammerhead and Galapagos sharks.
