Definitely go with Rosedelco, they were the best! We swam with turtles, sharks, penguins, a young albatross and golden rays. And best of all we saw two large seahorses. The guides took photos of everything we saw and copied them to a memory stick for us at no charge. We highly recommend Los Tuneles with Rosedelco!

On our second day on Isabela, my friend and I booked a joint tour of Los Tuneles through our hotel (Iguana Crossing) and it was absolutely the highlight of our stay on the island. Do not miss this! The day we went, there were 8 others on the tour - to make 10 total (not including the guides). You start... More

It's expensive for $80 (?), but in my opinion, you can't not go to Los Tuneles while on Isabela. The landscape is really neat--you can see exactly what it's like in the pictures, but there are so many arches and tunnels that it's a really fun experience to weave your way through them on a boat, looking at boobies and...

We went for a snorkeling trip in February, 2015 and it was amazing. We chose the Rosedelco agency, which was great but be aware they don't speak English. As a matter of fact, on the galapagos surprisingly not many people speak English. It is still manageable and if you are good with hands and gestures you should be alright. During... More

It was great, saw manta rays, sharks, one sea turtle, seahorses, a large and beautiful school of fish (flounder maybe), and 3 little penguins. I was fantastic, but it almost seemed like everything (all of the sea life) was staged in the exact spots the captain took us. We were excited about the underwater pictures that the captain took and... More

The most memorable moment for us was the boat ride. We saw over 30 manta rays, got up close to a giant one - 5m wing span. We also saw their 'mating dance', jumping up from the water to impress their potential mates. We wish we could have spent more time following one, or being closer to one. We are... More

We weren't sure about this tour at first but everywhere we went everyone kept talking about it and they were right. This experience was great. We had a great boat and crew that played fun music and when we found manta rays out in the open ocean they stopped to let us jump in with them! They took us to... More

We had decided to skip Los Tuneles after having such an epic dive at Kicker Rock off San Cristobal. After all, we had been down between 20-30 meters surrounded by hundreds of shark and every creature we hoped to encounter in the Galaps. How could this, a simple snorkel excursion, compare. We decided to go last minute. The tiny boat... More

I have to start off by saying that though I absolutely loved this tour, its success depended on great guides and a little bit of luck; so it is possible that others may have a totally different experience. After a ~45 min. boat ride, we first arrived to a place called "El Finado" where we spent most of our time... More
