Daphne Island (Isla Daphne) is a small inactive volcanic island north of Santa Cruz Island and 12 km west of the Baltra Airport in the Galápagos Islands, a small archipelago of islands belonging to Ecuador in the eastern Pacific Ocean. It is also known as Isla Daphne Major to distinguish it from its smaller companion (Daphne Minor) just 4 km to the NE. It consists of a crater, devoid of trees, with a rim that rises 120 m above sea-level. Though easily accessible to most visitors to the Galápagos, the national park service has highly restricted visits to this island, as it is primarily used for scientific research.

Daphne is home to a variety of other birds and an intensive study of Darwin's finches was conducted here by biologists Peter and Rosemary Grant over a period of 20 years. They examined the behaviour and life cycles of finches, with the results they claimed supporting Darwin's theory of evolution. Their efforts were documented in the Pulitzer Prize winning book, The Beak of the Finch.

It is not an easy place to visit. To set foot on Daphne Major, you have to approach a steep cliff in a small boat and then take an acrobatic leap onto a tiny ledge. The island is small, and so is its population of birds. Daphne is home to a variety of other birds including Galápagos martins, blue-footed booby, Nazca booby, short-eared owls, red-billed tropicbirds and magnificent frigatebirds.
