Isla Tortuga

The Turtle-Shaped Wonder

Isla Tortuga is named for the shape of the island, not the inhabitants. The island is a collapsed volcano that is a nesting location for a variety of seabirds such as Frigatebirds and the elusive Red-Billed Tropicbird, among others.

Fishing can be an option on many of our uninhabited island tours.

The island is completely protected land so you will not be able to disembark. You can photograph and view the flocks of seabirds, Sea Lions and Marine Iguanas that call this island home from the boat and the water, though.

View countless frigate birds and other high soaring species.

This tour is a good option if you are a bird-lover or the Lava Tunnels or volcano tour don’t suit your needs.

"Galapagos Alternative did an excellent job is organizing this trip. This was truly VIP treatment from start to finish. Someone met us at the airport and we waited in the VIP lounge while they got up our luggage and then we were off to our hotel."
