Fernandina Island, formerly known as "Narborough Island" in English (after John Narborough), is the 3rd largest and youngest of the Galapagos Islands. Just like the others, it was formed by the Galapagos hotspot. Fernandina Island is an active shield volcano. It has been erupting since April 2009. Captain Benjamin Morrell recorded one of the biggest eruptions in the history of Galapagos at Fernandina Volcano, on tile that was anchored in Banks Bay. His ship successfully escaped to safety and the account of the eruption was preserved.

Fernandina Island (Galapagos)

Fernandina Island has an area of 642 sq.km (247.9 sq.miles) and a height of 1,476 m (4,842 ft), with a summit caldera 6.5 km (4 miles) wide. In 1968 parts of the caldera floor dropped 350 m and a small lake has occupied the northern caldera floor. Due to recent volcanic activity, the Fernandina does not present much plant life. The island has a mostly rocky surface.
