In addition to sea lions, turtles and sea iguanas are frequent on the beach, as well as several species of birds, such as the Maria canary, frigates and various kinds of finches. It is also possible to snorkel and if you have good fortune to swim with a sea lion.
Punta Espinoza on Fernandina Island: Punta Espinoza is a fine lava and sand ledge that connects the Fernandina volcano with the sea, famous for its marine iguana population, whose high number sometimes makes it difficult to walk between them. They share the space with iguanas, penguins, sea lions, crabs and the non-flying cormorant, a species that can only be seen in Fernandina and Isabela, well known for being the only cormorant that has lost the ability to fly. The surrounding environment is made up of lava fields of the volcano, one of the most active in the world.
Daphne Major: The Daphne Islands (Daphne Major and Minor) are two small islands of volcanic origin in the Galapagos Islands archipelago. The largest has an area of 0.39 km². Daphne Mayor is located at the north of Santa Cruz. It is formed by a crater of lava, has no trees and very little vegetation and the edge is 120 meters above sea level. There are many breeding birds that go to raise their chicks in the environment near to the crater. Although easily accessible to visitors, the Park Service does not allow many visits to this island and are mostly dedicated to scientific research.
