Mangrove magic at Mangle Point

Mangle Point, Galapagos
  • Fauna abundance

  • Striking vistas

  • Difficulty

  • Snorkeling Quality


Mangle Point (known as Punta Mangle locally) is one of the newer visitor sites that have been authorized by the Galapagos National Park, and this one is excellent for snorkeling.

Mangle Point is on the eastern side of Fernandina and is a natural inlet which forms a sheltered area that's filled with wildlife, both under the water and on the coast. There's no landing here, and you will be snorkeling direct from your boat.

Among the species that you are likely to see are Galapagos rays, sea lions, green turtles, and sharks. As you drift along by the mangroves you can also see flightless cormorants, pelicans, Darwin's Finches, and many more species that your Galapatours expert guide will identify to you.
