Genovesa, or Tower Island, is the northernmost island in the archipelago that is allowed to be visited by non-diving cruises. This island is extremely remote and home to literally millions of birds belonging to many different species. Amongst these species are included: the red-footed booby as well as frigates, swallow-tailed gulls, and even endemic owls.
El Barranco, also known as Prince Phillip’s Steps, is a steep path with stairs carved into the rock that leads to a plateau with an abundance of bird life amongst a Palo Santo forest. The inhabitants are abundant, and amongst their species, the Nazca boobies, Galapagos doves, mockingbirds, and petrels are included. With some luck, you'll have a chance to spot a short-eared lava owl.
Darwin Bay is home to a stunning coralline beach that is perfect for a blissful stroll. A trail from the beach immerses you into lush mangroves where red-footed boobies nest, and there are multiple opportunities to enjoy the other local inhabitants that roam this area, including sea lions, swallow-tail gulls, frigates, and more. Snorkeling is a must here as sharks, colorful reef fish, rays, and tortoises are common.
