Cruises from Genovesa
Genovesa Island consists of a single shield volcano, with a small lake-filled crater, in the Galápagos Islands of Ecuador in the eastern Pacific Ocean. Although there have been no historic eruptions on the island, the volcano should be considered active, though dormant. The landing site for Darwin Bay is a small beach at the end of the bay, and provides one of the best opportunities to see hammerhead sharks while snorkelling. Sea lions will often haul out on the white sands, and numerous birds nest in and near the mangroves that line a 0.75 km path.
Visitors can take the trail here that leads up to the top of the cliffs surrounding the bay for an overall view of the island.
