Only visit this location if you have a high tolerance for adorable. Sea lions and pups as far as the eye can see, some literally just born with the placenta not yet stolen by the birds. I'm absolutely not a "squeeee" kind of a girl,...More

This is one of the best islands to see sea lions, blue-footed boobies, frigate birds, iguanas, lizards, all in one place. Easy walking, dry landing, open landscape, bring sunscreen.

We visited here as part of a week-long cruise and the place was great. We took a small Zodiac from the ship to skim along the coast. We saw sea lions, rays, sharks, turtles, boobies, herons, pelicans, frigate-birds and gulls in great quantities.
