Welcome to Isla Fernandina (Narborough)
Even by Galápagos standards, Fernandina is unique. It’s home to thousands of lethargic marine iguanas, and for the volcanically minded, it’s the island on which you’re most likely to witness an eruption – the most recent was in September 2017. At 642 sq km, Fernandina is the third largest, as well as the westernmost and youngest, of the main islands. Unlike other parts of the Galápagos, no introduced species have taken root here – the island's endemic residents include a contingent of marine iguanas, Galápagos penguins, sea lions and flightless cormorants.
