Great place to see boobies and enjoy the landscape. Its about an hour and a half boat ride but worth the time due to the unique rocks there. There are bridge like formations of old lava over clear water.

We took a boat tour to Los Tuneles. Beautiful landscape. Saw Blue Footed Boobies doing their mating dance! Snorkeled with sea turtles, a manta ray, beautiful fish and white tipped reef sharks. Two different 'dives'. Knowledgeable guide eager for us to experience everything we could. A 'must do' activity.

Swimming with humongous, peaceful sea turtles. Walking on an "other worldly landscape" of lava arches. What's not to like ?

I had a tour here yesterday and it was cool. You ride on a boat and travel through all the points! The first thing I did was climbing the rocks and there was a bridge which I took a picture with my family. There were boobies with us when we took the picture. They also give you simple lunch which... More

Los Tuneles give you the chance to see an amazing landscape, really close-by blue-footed boobies, sea horses, sea lions, and the chance to snorkel close to penguins, white-tip reef sharks and really huge green turtles in a shallow lagoon. The only possible drawback is the long boat ride until you reach the place (an adventure in itself) which can be... More

Great snorkeling trip and fun to walk around on top of the tunnels too. Mother nature truly created art when she created this landscape. AMAZING. Pictures dont do it justice. It was so fun and so beautiful i definitely reccomend and if i could return, I would be there right now

Went to Los Tuneles twice during my time in Isabella, both times with Isabella Dive Center and both times with Carlos (guide). Carlos was a fantastic guide and made our money well worth while, he said to me 'Do not worry the animals here work for me' and I almost believe it as what Carlos looks for Carlos finds. Fantastic...

Saw a ton of stuff in the water. We went in April.The trip can be pretty choppy, don't do it if you are worried about getting seasick. The guides were great, got to see penguins, sea lions swimming, Spotted Eagle Rays, 2- 3 huge turtles, sea horses, tons of fish, yellow Rays in groups, and .... Gasp:white tipped sharks in... More

Maybe a bit too short for me. The whole experience was great. We had a great guide and saw so many animals. Nice trip for a couple or a family.

You will need to be an ok swimmer...... But this by far was our best experience! Grandpa, myself and 2 daughters went on trip. Saw so many animals, and everyone was thrilled with experience!
