An open water snorkel in the bay usually includes interactions with sea lions, sea turtles and iguanas. This tour is typically conducted by motorboat but your vessel can be substituted for a kayak or paddle board if you prefer. We can easily incorporate that into your Galapagos vacation.

"Just got back from a 12-day trip to the Galapagos arranged thru Galapagos Alternative and everything was exceptional. From the tours, to the transfers, flights, and most importantly the people... everything was smooth. Highly recommend it!"
