    I took many tours, this was the best tour on the Galapagos by far. I took a day tour on Yacht Steffi to Pinzon island and had the most memorable experience. I was comfortable onboard and the boat had an awesome second floor Bridge for relaxation. The captain navigated the boat into most exotic locations. We spent less time traveling and more time snorkeling, walking and hiking. I got to snorkel with sharks, sea lions, turtles and many other animals. The naturalist Gabriel was the best guide who showed the best places and explained the islands. The chef cooked a delicious meal. This was the best experience I’ve had on the galagos. Guiding Galapagos is the best tour company.

    I booked this tour with Guiding Galapagos. The departing location is right in "downtown" Santa Cruz very close to the dock. This is a long day, but worth it to me to see Isabela Island from Santa Cruz. The Islet was wonderful with many species to observe there. We were then given the opportunity to snorkel. After that, we were taken to a local restaurant on the beach where we were served a traditional Ecuadorian lunch with a choice of meat for the entree. We then toured the tortoise project on the island and walked through the wetland area to see the flamingos. Finally, we made our way back to the dock for the ride back to the taxi boat. The path back passes many, many iguanas which were a lot of fun to see! It was then time to take a rest on the speedboat back to Santa Cruz. Try to get a seat up top or in the back for maximum ventilation! The sun is strong there.

    My husband and I LOVED this tour, and it was one of the highlights of our Galapagos experience. We snorkelled with sea turtles, sharks, rays and many fish... and were exhilarated in the channel between the rocks on Kicker Rock. We also swam out to a rock with blue-footed boobies on it (though didn't like the horseflies that bit us once we returned to the beach!) We also loved the commentary as we boated all around the coast of San Cristobal. Our tour guide Fabricio was a passionate, funny and charming advocate for wildlife, and has the best sea lion impression ever lol :) (We were happy to discover that we had unwittingly captured it in a couple of our videos.) We were also inexperienced snorkellers (and over 60), and Fabricio made us feel calm and confident (and only laughed a little bit when I put my wetsuit on backwards first time haha!). He also single-handedly dragged three non-swimmers who were hanging on to a donut, while swimming faster than any of us! Fabricio, if you're reading this, you were our favourite of the four tour guides we experienced on our trip! (And we'd love to see the GoPro photos you took that day - April 28, 2022. I had to leave my email address with you because I didn't have WhatsApp :))

    This daytour was one of the best experiences during my Galápagos trip. The snorkeling experience was the highlight of the day, where we swam close to sea lions, sharks, rays and in the middle of fish schools. The guide and the staff were very nice and helpful, the boat and the food were also very good. I highly recommend it.

    My travel was amazing. I took a lot of pictures of gigant turtles, blue footed boobies and penguins. Therefore I did scuba dive with sharks, sea turtles, sea lions and hundreds of fishes at Seymour, Mosquera and Daphne islands. Hotel was very comfortable with a beautiful sight of the sea. Also I visited Bartolomé Island, Tortuga Bay beach and Bahía de los Perros.

    Food was delicious at the entire island and Angermeyer restaurant is one of a kind.

    People in the islands are very kind and is 100% secure to travel despide of the coronavirus. Security is amazing cause there aren’t robbers.

    I totally recommend this experience!!

    Any snorkeling in the Galápagos is wonderful. We went snorkeling in one area that had an abundance of beautiful fish. They then moved to boat to an area where there is a sea lion colony. The water in October is rougher and colder than other times of year but the advantage is swimming and seeing all the young sea lions. I recommend swimming with a wet suit so you don’t get cold and even a life vest where the currents are stronger. Lunch was delicious as well. I wished I had an underwater camera.

    Seahorses! Octopus! Sharks! Turtles! Rays! All within 15 minutes of snorkeling. There no way we would have found the seahorse or the octopus without our guide, Darwin. I highly recommend snorkeling at the 2nd site at the tunnels. Not a ton of sea creatures like the first site, but the geological features can’t be beat! Lunch was also delicious! We also found some Blue footed Boobies that were nesting. When we were done, Darwin airdropped >100 photos & videos from our day. One video is jaw dropping. Truly one of our best days in the Galapagos!!

    Rebecca Travel was an absolutely amazing company to go through. They had everything scheduled and ready to go from start to finish and the tours were amazing. My fiance and I were living in Quito at the time we visited the Galapagos. My parents came down to Ecuador to visit us and experience this once in a lifetime trip. If you are on a budget (and get motion sick and want to stay on land at night like we did) this is the trip for you! The food was amazing and the experiences are some that we will cherish forever.

    **The ferry can be VERY ROUGH so it is worth arriving early to get a good seat in the back as well as taking LOTS of dramamine. The ferry ride is worth it though.

    Well organised. Attentive guide, with lots of knowledge. Exceptional wildlife on land and snorkelling. Playful sea lions while snorkeling were great. The food was plentiful and excellent. Would worry about the size of the boat on a more choppy crossing.
    Fortunately we had an extremely comfortable ride. Wetsuits were included in the snorkelling gear which not all companies offer, and were very appreciated.
