If you find yourself ashore on Isabella, and you should if you can, then this is where you will snorkel or dive. The sealife is amazingly plentiful and varied. Sea turtles will swim with you, the sea lions will check you out, the fish are...More

My goal was to see a blue-footed booby and we saw several, so that was great!! The island walk was really neat. All volcanic, but different topography everywhere you go in the Galapagos! This was lunar-like with all the white-topped black rock. Neat see all...More

Of all the excursions we did while we were in Isabela, this is one that I enjoyed least. Walking on the lava formation was fun, but nothing exciting. The snorkelling which was included in our trip here was fine, but we did not get to...More

Snorkelling was vrery poor we saw four very small fish but made up by land tour during which we saw about 25 sharks lazing in a canal, if these hadn't been there we would have thought it a complete waste of money.

Let me start by saying I am a 55-year-old woman who is admittedly out of shape. Therefore the unsteady kayaks and using my limited upper body strength longer than I was comfortable doing so...colored my experience a bit negatively. Also, because the kayak was unsteady,...More

We launched on sea kayaks, went around the inner cove to see so much wildlife in the water and on the shores. Eagle rays, golden rays, turtles, many fish and sharks, boobies, penguin, pelicans and more. The snorkelling was a bit murky, but not bad.

This is a really enjoyable tour. Easy hike on Tintoreras islet and more than an hour snorkeling around. Penguins are playful and can get really close to check you out.

We paid about $45 per person. You can pay by credit but they charge extra, about 20%. The person who said there is an ATM is wrong - there is no bank or ATM on Isabela. Best to take lots of cash. The Tintoreras tour is... More
