Pinzón Island, sometimes called Duncan Island (after Adam Duncan, 1st Viscount Duncan), is an island in the Galápagos Islandsmarker, Ecuadormarker.

Pinzón is home to giant tortoises, sea lions and other endemic species. It has no visitor sites and a permit is required to visit.

It has an area of 18 sq km and a maximum altitude of 458 meters.

This marks the geographical center of the Galapagosmarker Islands so it is surprising that neither of the Galapagos Islands' two main tree species occur on the island. In the humid zone a unique species of the daisy tree is found.
