Lots of fish. Good visibility and you have to dive/jump off a dingy to save your energy if coming from the beach. It's not an easy snorkel all the way round as the current changes but any good operator will supply buoyancy aids and follow...More

Enjoyed a good snorkel, get your eyes down for shark as soon as you hit the water as we saw a number of White-tip but no Hammerhead sadly. Do not kick as the current takes you along effortlessly, just enjoy the ride!

The water was really cleare and there was a lot of sealife. We even got to swim a little with an adult sealion. We missed it but other group members saw a hammerhead. It was my favorite snorkel spot during the Daphne Southeast cruise.

Snorkel accessed off a dinghy from our boat Eden. Second only to Los Tunelos snorkel, this snorkel was excellent. Somewhat strong current which made the snorkel very short. Lots of beautiful sea stars/starfish, King Angelfish, Rainbow Wrasse, Pufferfish. Awesome!

The snorkelling on this reef is demanding if you're not a strong swimmer, a number of our group dropped out. There is, however, a reward for perseverance. So many shoals of fish you don't know where to look next. Sadly, we didn't see and sharks...More

Really enjoyed a morning snorkeling at the Devil's Crown, a drowned volcanic Caldera. So much to see; seals and sharks and all sorts of fish, just stunning at every turn. Even from the boat the Crown is beautiful as it looms out of the water....More

Different to Kicker Rock - probably clearer. Loads of interesting sea life - we saw tuna, massive rays, loads of turtles, hammerheads. On the rocks that surround the crown there were nesting blue footed boobies. The currents are pretty strong but the water is crystal...More

Some of the best snorkeling I've done. I put it up with Kicker Rock. We saw tons of beautiful fish and coral, plus a shark. Cool formation too. I put this among our best spots in the Galapagos.

Expect very strong currents at Devil's Crown -- there were instances when they were so strong, it felt like it was impossible to swim through! But the wildlife seen around the area was phenomenal -- we saw sea lions, sharks, shoals of fish, etc underwater,...More

A rocky outcrop just off Floreana Island has strong currents making snorkeling challenging. But worth it for the diversity of fish swimming amongst the coral. Sea lions also played nearby.
