“Great snorkelling site”
Reviewed September 8, 2012

The young sealions loved to play with you. Watch out for your snorkel masks as they would happily tug them to the water. Nice snorkeling site if it has not rained the day before.

“A Nice Place to Swim & Snorkel”
Reviewed August 29, 2012

Concha is a 10-15 minute walk out of town. The boardwalk is a short walk to a pier that allows you to snorkel in a protected cove. Seals often sleep on the boardwalk.

“Easiest snorkeling ever!”
Reviewed August 12, 2012

This was a 15 minute walk from la Casa Marita. 10 minutes on the road, then when the road turns into the dock you go another 5 minutes on a boardwalk through a mangrove forest and come to this. It's a protected cove, water as calm as can be, and, while it's not the best snorkeling in the world, there is still a decent amount of fish, as well as some turtles and rays. There's a dock and some benches from which you can easily access the water. We went there everyday after our daily adventures.

“Swimming with sea lions”
Reviewed July 9, 2012

A small clear little lagoon where we swam for 2 hours with 5 young sea lions. We had a fantastic time and could not get out of the water. It was hard to say goodbye. Take a wetsuit if you can, the cold currents are cold!

“Eh”
Reviewed July 9, 2012

Considering we had such wonderful experiences in so many other places in the Galapagos, this was not a must see. Compare it to going to a public beach in NYC versus the Caribean.
