Isabela Island tour


Tagus Cove, named after a British warship which anchored here in 1814, this cove is located to the west of the island and it is usual to take a panga trip below the high cliffs. Here there is an opportunity to see penguins as well as marine iguanas, Sally Lightfoot crabs and sea lions.

Urvina Bay, south from Tagus Cove and still on the West coast is Urvina Bay. The waters of the bay are a good place to see turtles and rays and ashore is a short trail leading to a coral reef, which is evidence of an uplift from the sea which occurred in 1954.

Marine iguanas, flightless cormorants and pelicans can be seen at this site.

Punta Albemarle located at the northern tip of Isabela (forming the horns or raised ears of the seahorse shape of Isabela), Punta Albemarle was used as a radar base by the U.S. during World War II. As one sails past, the abandoned water tanks can be viewed through a pair of binoculars. Often that's all that will be seen, as very few boats land here, due in part to the rough surf.

The waters in this region seem to be very productive, and there are excellent chances for seeing whales here.

Punta Garcia is located on, the eastern coast, across the Isabela Channel from James Island. Except for early in the morning, the dry landing is not an easy one. Sometimes not a very dry one either.
