Day 2VICENTE ROCA POINT & ESPINOSA POINT
Begin the morning with a visit to Isabela Island. Isabela Island is the largest of all the Galapagos Islands, reaching a vast 120 km long. Formed by 6 different shield volcanoes, this island is a perfect place to explore. Lookout for unique wildlife such as the pink iguana, tortoises, and other species near each of the 6 volcanoes. Then, head to Vicente Roca Point, where the geological formations will rock your world! Keep your eyes open for blue-footed boobies, Nazca boobies, gulls, and more. On the western part of the island, the Cromwell Current brings cold water and nutrients to many animals, such as whales, dolphins, sea lions, etc. This is a fantastic place to animal-watch.
In the afternoon, make your way to Fernandina Island. Fernandina is one of the island’s most pristine island ecosystems, due to little human interaction. While here, visit the La Cumbre Volcano, as it extends its lava fields straight out to the ocean. Later, search for the Galapagos Hawk at Espinosa Point. Land iguanas and marine iguanas can be found on the inner parts of the island, as well. Hike, snorkel, or simply look out at your surroundings for the duration of your stay.
