Puerto Egas


Egas Port was named after the Entrepreneur Hector Egas that used the location to extract salt from its salt mines, it ultimately  failed because the price of salt in the continent was very cheap, and did not justify its exploitation in Galapagos. The visit point starts with  a wet landing in a black sand beach, following 1 out of the 2 trails leads along the coast to the shoreline fur seal grottoes. It is common to spot lava lizards & the majestic Galapagos Hawk.
