The Birds of Galapagos


Marilyn JonesAs a passenger on Galapagos Eclipse Genovesa Cruise with AdventureSmith Explorations, I visited six islands, including Genovesa, or Tower Island.

The northernmost island allowed to be visited by naturalist cruises is home to millions of birds belonging to many different species unseen anywhere else in the world.


The ship accommodates 35 to 40 passengers. Divided by three, groups have the full attention of naturalist guides who identify species and answer guest questions.

We arrived from the ship on a panga, a small inflatable boat, and slowly climbed Prince Phillip’s Steps, steep stairs carved into the rock leading to a plateau full of bird life.
