The bay is a good place to observe pelicans, frigatebirds and Blue-footed Boobies fishing around Puerto Ayora. To the west of the town towards Punta Estrada is Bud´s Bay and Las Grietas. Here you may see Common Noddies, Blue-footed Boobies, herons, and migrant waders. Marine Iguanas and Sally Lightfoot Crabs are also easily seen on the rocks and during our hiking activity. They often bask on the rocks here or at the beach.
