This was such a fun morning excursion! We saw where so many marine iguanas live and nest, and we finally got to see penguins! We also got to swim with them and several sea lions, and there were also blue-footed boobies everywhere--so close! I definitely recommend it!

This tour takes you to the little island near the main port that has a million iguanas and areas where you can see sharks. The trip also includes snorkeling with penguins, sea turtles and sea lions!!

Lovely short boat trip in the calm waters of the bay at Puerta Villamil. We saw penguins and blue footed boobies (hundreds), baby marine iguanas, an owl (that was pure luck) and we snorkeled with turtles.

Enjoy the short boat ride and brief hike across these small volcanic islands. The naturalist guide explains the special adaptations that evolved in the different species of plants and animals endemic to the Galapagos Islands.

We took this boat ride not knowing what to expect. Before we even started we were surrounded by a great flock of Blue-footed Boobies which was feeding in the harbor. Just being there for this spectacle was worth far more than the price of admission.
Although the island hike was a bit anticlimactic (no sharks) we did see an iguana swimming.
We then snorkeled which was fabulous as we were amongst sea turtles, sea lions and penguins in the water. At one point our guide lead us to the mangroves where we were able to watch a Frigate bird.
