Other than researchers and a few divers, the two Daphne islands (Major and Minor) between Santa Cruz and Santiago are generally off-limits to visitors. The tuff cone of Daphne Major has been the site of scientific research of the Galapagos finch populations. It is also home to blue-footed boobies and an endemic palo santo forest. With special permission from the National Park, this could be an exciting yet rare stop on your Galapagos trip. Otherwise, you'll have to appreciate it from afar and from the pages of the famous book written about the Darwin Finches that reside on this island called "The Beak of the Finch."
