Tagus Cove

Tagus Cove

Isabela Island

We will have a dry landing near Tagus Cove, a historic pirate hideaway where it was usual to record the names of the countless ships that passed through here on the cliff face.

A large portion of the writing is graffiti left by the US Navy during the mid-1900's, but the names of more ancient vessels can still be found.

We will then do a short hike through some beautiful landscapes to reach Darwin Lake, a small salt-water crater lagoon surrounded by tuff stone and inhabited by many bird species.

The hike is somewhat strenuous due to the steep climbs involved. If you have difficulty walking, you may well want to stay on the boat.
