The wildlife is fantastic. Marine iguanas, lovely red crabs, penguins completely undaunted by humans, some stray blue footed boobies, sea lions playing around while snorkelling, and sea turtles - all on show. Sea water warm and clear. No sharks in a common haunt, as guide thought water level low for them that day but nevertheless very exciting.

We booked a half-day tour through Isabela Dive Shop. The seas were very rough so plan on taking motion-sickness prevention meds. We thoroughly enjoyed our tour of the islands. We saw lots of Boobies and penguins on the rocks on the ride out. Tons of marine iguanas on the island, so watch where you step! The highlight of the tour was watching a family of sea lions playing in a cave. Spectacular! Please BEWARE of the snorkel stop on the way back. It was an open ocean/ from the boat snorkel. The seas were probably 4-6 foot and we were taken to an "alternate site" to snorkel. I'm a decent swimmer, but got tired very quickly battling the waves and swam back to the boat along with a few others.

Once you make the trek to this maze of lava tunnels and bridges, you'll have your breath taken away. Pure natural beauty with sea turtles, sting rays, penguins, blue footed boobies and more just living their lives.

Great for non swimmers, they will help you with a life-vest and you can snorkel too. We got to see sea turtles and lots of sea life.

We kayaked, walked and snorkeled our way around Las Tintoreras. Great way to see the Galapagos penguins, herons, other birds, marine iguanas, sea lions, and lots of fish. Even saw a reef shark. Great for kids ... ours were 10 and 15 and loved the experience.
