Los Tuneles Snorkeling Day Tour

Around Los Tuneles you will find a highly contrasted colour for snorkeling with clear, calm water. Additionally, the lava flows that passed through this area had formed unique geological formations which are, of course, shaped like tunnels. You will get the chance to spot large quantities of seabirds such as the Albatros, Flamingos, Blue Footed Boobies and the magnificent Frigate bird. Besides, you can find species feeding such as tortoises, swimming iguanas, sea lions, manta rays, Galapagos penguins, lobsters, and sea snakes.

We almost didn't do this trip after having snorkeled already for several days while on a cruise, but I'm so glad we did. Swam with giant manta rays, seahorses, sea lions, sea turtles, and penguins.

We saw all the animals - from sea horses to blue footed boobies and even sharks. My advice to anyone taking the tour - and, if you're on Isabela, you must take the Los Tuneles tour - is to hang back from the tour guide. The tour guides know where all the animals are, so they will rush ahead to make sure everyone sees them. If you try to keep up, you may see all the animals, but it will also be very crowded. Instead, stay a little behind, because you will still see everything, but will not have to share the view.

The half-day tour to Los Tuneles from Puerto Villamil was great. On way there, we saw Manta Rays, Sea Turtles, Nazca Boobies, etc. Once at Los Tuneles, the geological landscape is fascinating. There are blue-footed boobies nesting, sea lions and sea turtles roaming in the shallow waters. While snorkeling we got to see some rays, sea horses a lot of sea turtles and many schools of different fish.
