We loved our tour to Los Tuneles.booked with Tunel Ocean. The trip out to this area is about 45 minutes. Along the way, we stopped at a huge rock outcropping where Nazca boobies were nesting. Los Tuneles is a series of volcanic rock outcroppings close together that is incredible to see by boat and on foot. The boat navigates though... More

I was part of a group of 2 families that went on a tour to los tuneles. It was incredible. We went snorkeling and saw sharks, rays, turtles, fish, and seahorses. We also saw lots of blue-footed boobies. Definitely the best day trip from Puerto Villamil. We booked with Pahoehoe Tours and were not disappointed. DEFINITELY GO TO LOS TUNELES!!!

It was about a 45 minute boat ride from the port of Isabela. Great rock formation. I saw lots of turtles, sea lions, and blue footed boobies. We went snorkeling about 15 minutes from there and I saw a ton of fish, sharks, and my VERY FIRST SEAHORSE! Was great!

Visiting Los Tuneles is a must visit. We rented a private boat and it permitted us a lot of liberties. We booked the trip through the hotel Iguana crossing through email in advance and they contract out to the local touring group.

Los Tuneles offers some great snorkeling with rays, sharks, sea lions, and marine turtles but don't forget to notice the schools of fish! And if the sea cooperates, you can even walk among nesting blue-footed boobies.

We got picked up at 11.00am fitted out for our wetsuits and flippers at the office and then transferred to the pier where the boat took us... More
