Just across the Bolivar Channel from Isabela Island, Fernandina is the westernmost island in the archipelago and therefore geologically the youngest. It's difficult to say which is the most remarkable characteristic of this island -- it's geological features like an active cone-shaped volcano or is its hearty inhabitants who eke out a living on the black lava. Land mammals have never been introduced to Fernandina, and reptiles like marine iguanas, birds like the Galapagos Hawk, and playful sea lions dominate the lava rock landscape and coastline. Watching over the island is the caldera of La Cumbre Volcano, a particularly active volcano throughout the 20th century, with its most recent eruption in just 2005. Volcan Sierra Negra recently erupted in 2018. Contact us for help planning your tour to Fernandina Island in Galapagos.

Punta Espinosa, Fernandina Island

The lone visitor site on this island, and raved to be one of the most spectacular in all of the Galapagos, is Punta Espinoza, where you can get a close up look at marine iguanas, sea lions, nesting flightless cormorants, and if you're lucky, Galapagos penguins, and hawks. The Galapagos cormorants are notable as the only species of cormorants that have lost the ability to fly in exchange for an evolutionary advantage at diving, at which they are experts. Galapagos Penguins are the only penguins to live close to, and even north of the Equator. 

In a small inlet off the shores of Fernandina’s coast is Mangle Point. Here, you will delight in the opportunity to snorkel among gracefully diving penguins and the playful sea lions. Although there is no landing, this site does offer breathtaking views of the island.
