Rent a boat and Captain for a 1/2 day for 450.00. It’s well worth it. They will take you to all the safe spots to snorkel and swim. You can snorkel with huge turtles and sea lions. We had a blast in San Cristobal!

Looked for the dive shop before taking a ferry over to Santa Cruz and it was no where to be found. Tourist information just shook their heads, but a nice man on the street told me they had moved to Isabella.

Jimbo and his guides were great. They were very patient with my son who's ears were bothering him. Swimming and playing with the sea lions ( which were every where ) was my highlight. Thanks Jimbo
