On the western shores of Isabela Island at the base of Alcedo Volcano, Urbina Bay is an area that was a result of an uplift from the sea in 1954, causing the land to rise some five meters in height. Following a wet landing on the beach, you will follow a 3.2 KM trail with your naturalist guide, observing land iguanas, tortoises and red and blue lobsters. Enjoy lunch aboard the Alya.
As the third largest island in the Galapagos, Fernandina is also the region's youngest. This six day Alya cruise will visit only one site on this island in the archipelago's remote west - Espinoza Point, which is home to the flightless cormorant and recognized for its large colonies of marine iguanas. Free of any introduced species, Fernandina is one of the world's most pristine islands, and despite its barren landscape, the lava cacti thrive here. Tread with care between January and June, durin the nesting period of the marine iguana.
Return to the Alya for dinner and enjoy the remainder of the night on board.
