Buccaneer Cove, located on the northwest side of Santiago Island, served as an anchoring spot for whalers, privateers, pirates and buccaneers, hence its name. There is no landing site here, but you can visit by taking a panga ride, and you can spot swallow-tailed gulls, pelicans, herons, as well as sea lions and fur seals. It's a great site for snorkeling, and you can enjoy the underwater life by swimming directly from the panga. The steep cliffs offer a magnificent view, with layers of eroded tuff volcanic rocks forming different amazing shapes.
