Tagus Cove is situated directly east of Fernandina on the west coast of Isla Isabela. It is a beautifully well protected cove sheltered by the shoulders of two volcanic craters and has been used as an anchorage for over 300 years. This was a favourite site of pirates and early whalers, who left their ship names and historical graffiti carved on the high cliff. You can go ashore and visit a saltwater lagoon and the lava fields of Darwin Volcano. You will also have magnificent views over the ocean. Go along the cliffs with a launch and see the exclusive Galapagos penguins, the flightless cormorants and many other sea birds.
