  Port Map

Genovesa Island (aka "Tower Island") is one of the minor (smaller-sized) Galapagos Islands of Ecuador. The isle is named after Genoa Italy - the birth city of Christopher Columbus (1450-1506, sea explorer, navigator and colonizer). The island has a total area of 14 km2 (5 ml2) and max elevation of 64 m (210 ft). This small isle is horse-shoe shaped, featuring a volcanic caldera with a collapsed wall (hence the name Tower Island). This part forms the Darwin Bay (landing point), which is surrounded by cliffs. Lake Arcturus is the salt water lake in its center.

Popular Genovesa Island shore excursion destinations are:

  • Prince Philip's Steps - steep path leading through a seabird colony, up to cliffs 25 m (82 ft) high. At the top, the path continues inland, passing through more seabird colonies in a thin forest. The trail also provides overviews of a rocky plain. Prince Philip's Steps is a bird-watching site with boobies (red-footed and Nazca species).
  • At Darwin Bay (landing point) can be seen frigatebirds and swallow-tailed gulls (the world's only nocturnal gull species). The fauna is also represented by boobies (red-footed), noddy terns, lava gulls, storm petrels, finches, some tropic birds and even doves.
  • The Genovesa Island also features a large forest (named Palo Santo).
