It is a long way to the northern island of Genovesa, so few ships make the journey, but you should consider it well worth a visit as you sail into a large sunken crater to anchor. The island is home to the biggest colony of red-footed boobies in the Galapagos Islands which can be seen Darwin Bay and Prince Philip’s Steps. Frigatebirds and masked boobies can also be seen at both sites, as well as fur seals and short-eared owls.
