Pristine environment, it looks like man had never existed. Peaceful iguanas stay at your feet and sea lions seem not to care of your presence, while penguins are swimming. One of the best excursions in the Galapagos Islands.

Our guide described this in advance as a great place to review all the wildlife we'd seen elsewhere--so true! Penguins, marine iguanas, seals, sally lightfoot crabs, boobies, herons--all in one short boat ride.

We expected only a snorkel trip. We were very pleased that it included a very nice bay cruise where we had good views of penguins, blue footed boobies, and pelicans. There was also a walk through the lava fields where we saw marine iguanas and in a sea water canyon many white tipped reef sharks. The snorkeling was also very good, a sea lion cruised by, and we saw lots of fish.

easiest and best thing to do on Isabella. Why? lava terrain is cool...and you can see penguins and boobies working...along with sea lions, turtles, rays, etc. may be your only chance in all of galapagos to swim with penguins.

Swam with sea lions, saw lots of iguanas, blue footed boobies everywhere, sharks in the channel. Easy tour, takes 10 mins to get to.
