Champion Islet - Floreana

Galapagos Islands


Overview

The Champion Islet, located off the north coast of Floreana Island, is one of the best places in Galapagos for snorkeling, diving and dolphin watching. It was named after Andrew Champion, a famous whaler. An impressive diversity of species awaits to be observed on land during a Zodiac cruise, like penguins, flamingos, blue-footed boobies, frigates, and the Floreana mockingbird, an extremely rare species with approximately 100 individuals left. But the major attractions can be found in the water: Galapagos sharks, sea lions, sea turtles, whales, starfish, giant mantas and many more amazing animals.
