Punta Moreno on the western coast of Isabela Island offers a nice view of the three most active volcanoes in Galapagos: Sierra Negra and Cerro Azul on Isabela Island and La Cumbre on Fernandina Island.
The first thing that catches your eye when you arrive at Moreno Point are the vast lava flows. The only vegetation that can be seen at first sight are the mangroves at the shore and some cacti. However, during a hike, you reach some beautiful oasis-like lagoons surrounded by lush green amidst the black lava flows. Abundant wildlife including flamingos can be seen at these lagoons. During a dinghy ride along the rocky shores, you will hopefully not only see blue-footed boobies but also penguins and flightless cormorants.

Highlights: Probably flamingos, penguins and flightless cormorants, blue-footed boobies
Permitted activities: Hiking, dinghy ride, snorkeling
Tip: Bring good walking shoes because the hike over the lava flows can be tricky.

Activities and visits may vary according to the cruise.
