... the trip planning to the trip itself, with all the hand-offs executed flawlessly, and many little details handled just a cut above - the VIP greeting, the top-notch tours and guides, and fabulous accommodations.

Santa Cruz, Ecuador 0.9 mi away
#9 of 102 Outdoor Activities in Santa Cruz
Tortuga Bay has gigantic waves for Surfing, perfectly preserved beach that is forbidden to swimmers and is preserved for the wildlife where many marine iguanas, galapagos crabs and birds are seen dotted along the...
... the end of the beach, (another km or so, worth the walk) there is another path to a 2nd beach (feels like a lake) where you have trees for shade, you can do kayak, see mini sharks, marine iguanas, and just relax.

Professional divers will guide your excursion which usually starts around 7:30 and finishes at 15:00 with a simple lunch at chocolate, the restaurant next to the diving center (included in the price).
Before commencing the dives those of us who hadn’t dived with the school before were taken through our key skills in a more benign practice area, and when diving, our Dive Master, Andreas, stayed with me throughout.

In all, Galapagos a la Carte helped us to book North Seymour and South Plaza day trips from Santa Cruz, a ferry ride to Isabella, an air taxi flight to San Cristobal, and a Kicker Rock Snorkel tour in San Cristoba...
