Black Turtle Cove

Black Turtle Cove

Santa Cruz Island

This beautiful and tranquil bay is actually not a landing site, but is the ideal spot for a dinghy (panga) exploration.

Your tour guides will likely cut the outboard motor and urge you to be competely silent, in order to avoid disturbing the wildlife.

The winding shoreline is flanked by three different species of mangrove; red, white, and black. The landscape is completed by herons and pelicans that rest on the trees.
