Cuatro Hermanos

Snorkel with the Four Brothers

Cuatro Hermanos is a chain of islands off the coast of Isabela. Like all islands in the Galapagos archipelago, they are volcanic in origin. These islands have been weathered by erosion into random shapes and formations.

The varied formations and mixed ocean currents make for great snorkeling opportunities. Hammerhead sharks, manta rays, and sea turtles are only a few of the diverse residents of this area.

The Cuatro Hermanos islands are restricted, therefore we visit a nearby beach on Isabela to lunch and relax.

"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!"
