It was built in 1793. Whaling was a large industry at the time, so ships would often be gone for two years. These ships often stopped at the Galapagos Islands. After rounding the cape, outbound ships would drop off their letters and return home to mail them. Over the years, thousands of ships stopped at Post Office Bay to receive and send mail. Many people have left a memorial sign with driftwood or other materials to remember their trip. Graffiti is only allowed in this area of the Galapagos.
Post Office Bay is where you'll land. You will pass the sun-kissed sea lions as you approach. The guide will collect a few letters from the group at the post barrel. The letters are then taken home by the traveler to be mailed to the recipient. Visitors can also send their own letters. The remains of the Norwegian Fishing Village, a commercial fishing operation that was established in 1926 but abandoned several years later, are also available. A group of Norwegians, with hopes of riches, established a fishing and canning business on $900 each.

They had to give up their dreams after a hard life in the Galapagos and some misfortunes. It is a beautiful site with a rich history. It is well-known by letters that Baroness Eloisa Von Wagner, referring to John Treherne's "The Galapagos Affair", loved this area. She spent many hours there learning about the vessels that approach the island. The ruins of the House of the Baroness, also known as the House of the Baroness, can be found within walking distance (30m).
