A must see!

A wonderful place to see a large variety of marine wildlife!! Everything from sea lions and sharks to sea horses, this is an excursion you can't miss if you are visiting Isabela.

I quite enjoyed visiting this location. The lava formations are interesting, and there's a great deal of wildlife to see. I personally saw sea turtles (which are everywhere in the galapagos), sea lions, fish, maybe a shark from recollection. Snorkeling nearby is similarly rewarding.

Observe sea lions, penguins, tropical fish, blue footed boobies, marine iguanas, sea horses and sharks as you are led by your naturalist guide around these flooded lava tunnels.

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
