Good free place to snorkel and have a good time. We saw sea lions, big rays, turtles and fish. You can rent some gear yourself and go there.

Short walk from main pier. The walkway itself is lovely and was filled with sea lions each time that we went. The snorkeling from the end of the small pier was amazing.

I was surprised that I didn't see more Sea Lions on Isabela Island (nothing like San Cristobal), but the one place we did get to see them on the board walk and beach around Concha de Perla. You can find them there blocking the paths...More

We enjoyed our snorkeling time at Las Tintoreras - saw alot of colourful fish, sea turtles, penguins, sharks and sea lions. One sea lion joined us to play and put on quite a show! The experience was outstanding.

Concha de Perla was the background to a very scary experience. First, it’s very convenient to the main Isabela boat dock and not too far from the town and many of the hotels. You simply walk a couple of minutes to a short pier-like structure...More
