Puerto Velasco Ibarra (Floreana Island)

Puerto Velasco Ibarra (Floreana Island)

Characteristics

Description

Anchor in front of Hotel Wittmer, to the right of the Port Captain building off brown sand beach. Lots of rocky areas, but good holding in course sand off this beach. SHE WOLF first tried to anchor closer to Port Captain, but just volcanic rock bottom there.

Dinghy Landing: Beach your dinghy in front of the hotel. Sand is course, not packed down and dinghy wheels sunk in, so be ready to push hard if your dink/engine is heavy. Alternatively, you can tie your dinghy up to the concrete pier by the Port Captains office - however, be wary of surge which could abrade your dink on the rough concrete.
