One of the small number of key sites to take in on Isabela. Our outbound and return journeys (about 1 hour each way) by skiff were over pancake flat glassy seas. Besides comfort this ensured we saw a huge amount of surfacing sea life along...More

Peaceful atmosphere, plenty of reef wildlife to spot (I saw 2 types of sharks, countless fish species, rays, turtles and sea lions), clear water for snorkelling. The tunnels includes a blue-footed booby nesting area, where I got to see several boobies up close (they weren't...More
So much wildlife to see, amazing. Make sure you have a wetsuit as the water is very cold. Penguins, sea lions seahorses turtles sharks, blue footed boogie nesting area as well nearby.
Get to Los Tuneles if at all possible. We saw so many incredible animals and fish, in these crystal clear waters. Our guide showed us blue-footed boobies, penguins, sea lions, white tipped sharks, huge rays, eels, and a seahorse too! I recommend a wetsuit, our...More

This was a very cool trip. We had already taken a 5-day cruise up north and did not feel that this was redundant. We saw a baby blue footed booby, sea horse, sharks, and a penguin.
Such an incredible experience. You have to request a tour from one of the local agencies, they'll give you all the equipment (weatsuit, snorkel), transportation (by boat) and lunch. It's about 45 minutes by boat from Isabela Island. Usually a full day activity. Totally worth...More
