Cruises from Urvina Bay
Urvina Bay (or Urbina Bay) is located at the foot of Alcedo Volcano, on the west coast of Isabela Island, the largest of the Galápagos Islands. They are a remote archipelago of equatorial volcanic islands situated in the eastern Pacific Ocean, about 955 km west of mainland Ecuador, of which they are a province. Urvina Bay is one of the best and the most recent example of geological uplift in the Galápagos. In 1954 the shoreline rose nearly 4.5 metres, and moved 1200 metres further out to sea, exposing giant coral heads and stranding fish schools, sharks, sea turtles and lobsters on what was now the shore.
