The archipelago has been known by many different names, including the "Enchanted Islands" because of the way in which the strong and swift currents made navigation difficult. The first crude navigation chart of the islands was done by the buccaneer Ambrose Cowley in 1684, and in those charts he named the islands after some of his fellow pirates or after the English noblemen who helped the pirates' cause.  Visitors may not go ashore on any of the islands without a certified guide, and they are not allowed to stray from designated paths. There’s a little more freedom underwater, where the Galapagos feature some of the most spectacular scuba diving in the world.
