We picked SharkSky tours for our day trip to Leon Dormido for two reasons: our Lonely Planet guidebook recommended them, and when we went around town to compare tours they were the same price as everyone else, but were the only operator that offered two chances to snorkel at kicker rock instead of one at kicker and one off of Isla Lobo. We were so, so happy with the tour we received! While checking out Isla Lobo, someone spotted a piece of trash in the water. The large boat came to halt and somehow maneuvered itself so someone could grab it before we went on our way. The guide was fun, friendly, knowledgable, and had a sense of humor along with excellent English, and the captain was also a really nice guy. The lunch they served was amazing, a really tasty rice dish, salad, fruit, and juice. We would certainly go with SharkSky for other tours.

Our family of 5 shopped around for a tour operator to take us around Galapagos Islands. We decided to pick Sharksky because it had different packages and was able to customize our 6-day schedule with private tours.

Sharksky was very organized and prompt at pickup times either for tours or meals. Their tour guides were knowledgeable. At San Cristobal we had lovely Jocelyn who accompanied us for the hike to the Loberias one afternoon and the snorkeling trip the next day. Pro: Good hotel (Casa del Mar y Iguana) and tour guide. Con: Lunch at the same restaurant two days and the food was not good (over cooked fish).

After flying in Isabela island we stayed at wonderful hotel Casa de Marita with nice lunches and dinners. Out tour guide Julio was also very knowledgeable and patient. The hike and snorkeling at Islote Tintoreras was wonderful, and the hike to top of Volcanos Sierra Negra and Chico plus lunch at Campo Duro was very nice. Pro: fantastic hotel on the beach, nice tour guide, good food. Con: Julio could have given us some suggestions on other activities available around the island on our free time. We found out other places to go with the help of hotel personnel.

After boating to Santa Cruz, we were met by Silvana who was also knowledgeable. She checked us in the hotel, took us to breakfast, tour of the highland, lunch at Manzanillo ranch, and swim at Tortuga bay. Pro: nice hotel, good lunch and dinner, knowledgeable guide. Con: one day was too short.

We booked a 5 day backpacker tour with Sharksky primarily because we wanted a land based tour as we are not big on cruise boats. This was an excellent option. Lots of snorkelling and we visited 4 islands. the price is really inexpensive compared to the cruise boat options. Our guide Edison was excellent and very experienced and a good sense of humour!

Our group was 16 people with a good mix of young girls and older couples. Overall the tour went along very smoothly, sharksky has good representation on all of the islands and they really looked after us.

The only complaint is that we paid extra to upgrade the standard hotels and booked La Casita de la Playa on Isabela island. We did not get this hotel and were shown to the Hotel Casa Sol instead. Fabulous location, right on the beach, but the hotel itself was disappointing. All the other hotels were just fine though.

This was without comparison the best snorkling tour we did in the Galapagos. Very well organized, excellent boat, great service, safe, including good food and wet suites. Staff is very friendly and knowledgeable. And the price was also very, very good.

You can easily organize this from Cristobal but their website is: http://www.sharksky.com/

Although I didn't book directly through Sharksky - they ended up being the tour agency that was used for my Galapagos Island Hopping tour. By finishing up the last two days in Santa Cruz - I had the pleasure of meeting up with two of their main people who were (like the entire program) super accommodating and very informative. I would highly recommend this agency for any of your Galapagos travel desires.
