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

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
