Urvina Bay on Isla Isabela is significant due to a recent geological event. In 1954 its coral reef was raised out of the ocean by 13 feet and can now be seen above the water. Iguanas, pelicans, flightless cormorants, rays and Galapagos Tortoises can be seen here. Isabela itself has an abundance of tortoises, animal, bird and marine life.
