The islands Daphne Major and Daphne Minor are located just north of Santa Cruz and west of Baltra Island. There is no visitor site on Daphne Minor and to set foot on Daphne Major a special permit is required. Daphne Major is a large tuff cone and Daphne Minor has a rather rectangular shape. Daphne Major is often visited on the beginning or the end of a cruise due to its proximity to the airport of Baltra. During a dinghy ride along its coast, you can observe nesting sea birds like blue-footed boobies.
