Snorkel in Galapagos. Many dive shops offer custom trips. Great way to see sea lions, fish and birds. Great boat ride and most offer nice lunch.

Galapagos Underwater was a fantastic choice for my dives on San Cristobal. Jimbo was excellent. The briefing was very thorough, the equipment was great, and the diving was some of the best in the world. Jimbo took very good care of me underwater as well, constantly making sure everything was OK, and pointing out a million cool creatures. It was... More

I snorkelled with a guide at Kicker Rock while Jimbo took my husband and two sons diving. The day trip was perfect. My husband will write a separate review of his amazing diving experience, but I wasn't even planning on going with them until I met Jimbo. All my fears of being inexperienced, strong currents were put to rest by... More

Jimbo (Jose) is amazing!! You need to get used to his laid back island character as coming from big cities in the states our minds go 100 miles an hour. but he keeps things calm and helps you enjoy the dives. We basically had a personal dive experience since no one else booked during our couple days of Christmas. It... More
