Tagus Cove - Isabela

Galapagos Islands


Overview

Tagus Cove, located on the western coast of Isabela Island, is a deep-water bay overlooking Fernandina Island. Its name comes from a British Boat sailing these waters in 1814, in search of giant tortoises. The cove has a rich and interesting history, with whalers and pirates, and you can even spot names written on the cliffs dating back from 1836. It's a perfect spot for hiking, a rather steep but short trail and at the top, you'll be met by an impressive view. Snorkeling is also a must here, you can see sharks, turtles and even sea stars.
