Best snorkeling ever!!

Even beats the great barrier reef. Hands down. Worth every cent (even though very expensive). If you can dive, then maybe consider that because it's only 20USD more in Santa Cruz... read more

The los tuneles daytrip was amazing. First we went snorkeling. The guide knew where the different spots were to see all the animals: we saw two seahorses, a lot of white tip sharks, turtles, octopus, and many fishes! Then we went to the lavatunels and had a magnific view on the ocean.

For us this was the highlight of 5 days Galapagos. Landscape like from another planet. Wildlife at hand. I swam with a lot of mantas, white nose sharks and turtles.

This is a must do tour. Go with the agency called Tropical on Isla Isabela. Book directly, don't prebook in Santa Cruz. Ask for Jairo to be your guide. He is the BEST!

Whenever you move in this world heritage, you are under control. That's ok, but somehow, they control too much. So, some trips turned into scientific excursions - e.g. los tuneles, actually a very scenic place that would deserve five stars.

Exciting trip with the opportunity to snorkel and see lots of wildlife. We saw stingrays, penguins, turtles, sea horses, sharks, the works. The guide was friendly and took awesome pictures of everyone snorkelling which he shared after at no charge. The lunch was simple but good. Great atmosphere with the captain going out of his way to help us spot... More

Today we went to Los Túneles with Pahoe Hoe, in the Anita boat and guided by Gabriel. The crew was great same as Gabriel, a pleasure to be guided by him. The tour is totally recommendable, and the snorkeling only comparable to the one at the kicker rock (Leon dormido). We saw a lot of different fishes, Manta rays, tens... More

I've never been so close to wildlife & such variety! The best part of this excursion was the blue footed boobies, learning about how they got the color & the variety of sounds from male vs female. There is a short walk around the lava formations to the picturesque tunnel. This is a must see sight of you are Isabela... More

There are some places that are so gorgeous that they bend your perception of reality.... this is one of them. Black lava bridges reach in bizarre arcs across crystalline waters where huge sea turtles glide silently among eagle rays. Blue footed boobies stand fearlessly and watch you with bright oblivious eyes as you walk within feet of them. This is... More

We did a half day tour from Santa Cruz. The tunnels area is quite eerie and desolate. We did see Blue footed boobies, sea turtles, sharks and manta rays so the snorkelling was nice. BUT>>>having spent a week in the islands, this actually wasn't novel anymore (how quickly we take things for granted). So...not sure it was worth $140 US... More
