Mangle Point, FERNANDINA ISLAND
Off the eastern coast of Fernandina is Mangle Point. a superior snorkeling and SCUBA dive site and a beautiful location for riding in a panga through a grove of mangrove trees. A hike of about 1/2 miles is possible. Whether you hike, snorkle, SCUBA or stay in your panga for a ride through the red mangrove trees, this second site of Fernandina Island is equally memorable. While you are on your ride, you are likely to see sea lions, tortoises, pelicans, rays and birds too numerous to name them all.
