Isla Gorgona (Colombia Pacific Coast)

Characteristics

Description

This island, lying about 18NM off the Pacific coast of Colombia, N of Guapi bay, is another National Park. For many years it was a maximum security prison, but now is a location for scientific research and tourism. It has a wide range of marine species as well as coral reefs. A main attraction is the humpbacked whales which come to mate there between June and October.

Approach should be made from the east. There are extensive shoals off the southern end of the island. There are good lights marking the island.

Although it is possible to anchor, the Authorities prefer yachts to use one of their buoys.

There is a hotel and restaurant and several interesting walking trails.
