Fernandina Island - Galapagos, Ecuador
Fernandina (formerly Narborough) Island is the youngest, most western and third largest of the Galapagos, with an area of 245 sq mi (635 sq km). Puerto Espinosa lies on the east coast opposite Tagus Bay on Isabela. The island has an active single volcanic crater, the caldera floor of which collapsed in 1968 due to seismic activity. Fernandina is entirely covered by lava flows frozen into stone and some small sandy beaches have formed along the shores shared by numerous marine iguanas, sea lions, flightless cormorants, penguins, and pelicans. You will also see lava gulls, lava herons, great blue herons, bright red Sally Lightfoot crabs, blue footed boobies and noddy terns. There are more than 30 cruises calling at this port.
