Genovesa Island is well known for the large number of sea birds that live here. We spent the day on this island and had two different outings. Both sites were full of seabirds!

At Darwin Bay, we had a wet landing and found many red footed boobies by the bushes. We also spotted male great frigate birds and swallow tailed gulls. At Prince Philip’s Steps, we had a dry landing and found large numbers of Nazca boobies as well as white-vented storm petrels. Several of our guests encountered short-eared owls hiding in the lava flow.
