Thank you very much dear Troy for sharing your comments about the Bay Tour on the Glass Bottom Boat here in Sta Cruz. It was a pleasure to have made this experience great for you!

There were 8 of us on this tour which seemed the perfect number and every part of it was interesting and enjoyable. We got up quite close to blue footed boobies on the rocks, saw lots of marine iguanas on Playa de los Perros, swam...More

Dear Michael, We are very pleased that you enjoyed your Bay Tour so much, you were lucky because not all the times you get to see that much. I am sorry though because you didn´t get to see the Glass Bottom, I guess the Captain...More

This tour takes you to several great land and snorkel sites that you can only get to by boat. For the cost of the tour (book on the island and not in advance), it's a fantastic way to spend a half day. I really loved...More

I don't do many tours, but I really enjoyed this one. It was cheap ($35) and only 4 hours long. The guides were the nicest and friendliest I've ever experienced. We snorkeled in 2 different areas.

We were excited to see the different species at the center, but were disappointed to see most of the sections empty. The center was very informational, but I would recommend walking around the town to see more animals.
