Amazing snorkeling with the penguins and sea turtles. A bit of a bumpy boat ride on the way back did not ruin the experience - but recommend to choose wisely where you sit on the speedboat. Snorkeling was a bit long (over an hour), but very impressive in terms of wildlife.

Oh, I wish I had a name for you because we had a great day snorkelling- the men (one called the Ecadorian John Travolta- ask around tour operators for him, uncanny resemblance)... They were great.

I highly recommend a trip to Los Tuneles if visiting Isabela. It was the best snorkeling experience I had in the Galapagos (I visited San Cristobal, Santa Cruz, and Isabela). We saw everything!

Good trip where you can see sea turtles, sharks, sea lions etc.The sea was very choppy and I found the snorkelling quite hard going as was so long to swim to the areas where!the turtles etc. Are but I am sure that if the sea is calmer it is much more enjoyable.

Los Tuneles was an awesome area of geologic formations with natural bridges and tunnels. It is a mating area for sea turtles and blue footed boobies. The boat we were on skillfully navigated between the boulders. It was a highlight of our trip to the Galapagos, Isabella Island.

Perfect spot to snorkel. Incredible sights in the water and on the land. A little bit challenging to get into the snorkel site through the breakers but worth it!
