What to expect

Get ready to discover the most spectacular site for snorkeling in Isabela Island! The route to the Tunnels lasts approximately from 1 hour and a half to 2 hours. Once in this sector, the boat will travel the different roads through the tunnels where you can clearly see the landscape that is the highlight of this paradise. You first go to Roca Union, a small islet located in the open sea where you can see pelicans, Nazca boobies, and blue-footed boobies, and the occasional sea lion resting on the rocks.

Next, you will sail for about 45 minutes to get to one of the most beautiful landscapes of lava rock formations of the Galapagos Islands, it is called Tunnels since, in ancient eruptions, the lava passed under the formed earth tunnels that then collapsed and gave rise to these arcs over the water. Admire the vegetation that comes out of the rocks, the crystal clear water, and the sea lions flutter between the arches. Later, you will explore the site known as Finados to snorkel with sea turtles, sharks Tintoreras, golden rays, eagle rays, sea horses, among others.

You will enjoy a lightbox lunch in the boat after having carried out the two activities. After lunch, you will return to Puerto Villamil where the tour ends.
