Welcome to Isla Genovesa (Tower)


The most northeastern of the Galápagos Islands, Isla Genovesa covers only 14 sq km and is the only regularly visited island that lies entirely north of the equator (the northernmost part of Isabela pokes above the line). Therefore, this often creates an opportunity for a little shipboard humorous advice to ‘hold tight as we pass over the bump.’ Because it’s an outlying island, Isla Genovesa is infrequently included on shorter itineraries.

Galápagos — North, West & Central Islands aboard the Yolita

The Galápagos Islands all have one thing in common; beautiful landscapes and incredible wildlife. (Okay, that’s technically two things, but you get the idea). Travelling aboard the Yolita, this tour takes you to some of the lesser-visited islands like Genovesa in the north and Isabela in the west. Expect to witness an amazing concentration of birdlife and massive bird rookeries, including the largest nesting colonies of red-footed boobies and frigatebirds. Hike right to the top of the Sierra Negra, Galápagos’ most recently active volcano, relax on the white-sand beaches, or snorkel with sea lions. Better yet, do it all.
