About Galapagos Bike & Surf
We are a group of young individuals with a love of nature, ocean and life on Isabela Island in the Galapagos. We have been serving adventurous and curious tourists for more than 10 years with unique experiences enjoying the beauties and riches of Isabela Island. Galapagos Bike and Surf was created in 2000 as “Carapachudo Tours”, with the idea of allowing visitors to explore and discover the remote and magical sites on the most pristine island of the Galapagos, in a variety of ways. Passionate about adventurous sports, we strive every day to offer the best conditions to practice surfing, SUP (Stand Up Paddle Boarding), kayaking, snorkeling, trekking, and mountain biking.
