Boat ride was fun and captain was great. He made the ride as smooth as possible for us.

We had a really well informed guide, Jorge. He had much history of the originating families on Floreana and their tortoises that remain there today. Food was great for lunch at a local restaurant.

But when we got to the beach, the surf and rocks were very rough. It was really hard to get back to shore (everyone commented how tiring it was). I think we should have skipped the snorkeling under those conditions. And the guide should have not have left one person out there snorkeling alone, especially in those conditions.

This part of the tour was definitely not worth the long hike there and back, especially with back packs and snorkel gear we had to carry ourselves.

Hello Bonnie, It's great to see that you enjoy the guidance of Jorge through the tour, it is a good chance to learn a lot about the history of the Island and he is really helpful to achieve that. For your mention about the snorkeling activities, we will have it in mind to better control in it but at the same time, is a must be activity as is a great oportunity to see the sea faune, we will improve the information about the difficulty that it has.

The ride was less than 2hours on a fast boat. At arrival we got on a minivan to drive up on the hill to start the walking tour. I didn’t enjoy the guide who took us around, Jorge. He wasn't much informed about the island, giving vague answers to simple questions, like how and when the Galapagos became part of Ecuador, but what I really disliked was the cheap way he was trying to be funny when talking about the tortoises. He kept making jokes about how and how often they have sex, using a language which wasn't funny and not appropriate for a 13 yrs old teenager, my son, and another teenager/young adult girl with her parents.
Jorge was also very confusing with dates and events about the history of Floreana, but at that point I had lost interest in asking questions.
At the beginning of the tour Jorge told us to stay in a group, we were 6 people, and to follow him. After lunch we started walking towards the beach, but he was walking so fast ahead of us that we lost him and were not sure which way to go. We kept walking and found him on the beach rushing us to get ready for snorkeling.We were able to swim with turtles and it was a great experience, but I wish we had a different guide.
On the return ride more people got on board, to fill up the boat to full capacity.There was no space and was uncomfortable. Considering that the people who got on at Floreana paid $30 for the ride to Santa Cruz and I paid $236 each, I can't justify the price.At least we should have had a private boat
