Los Túneles Snorkeling Excursion | Isabela Island, Galapagos


 

Journey to Los Túneles, a seldomly visited piece of Galapagos paradise. Epic snorkeling and encounters with uninhibited wildlife await at these otherworldly lava tunnels. An exhilarating ride on a small craft along the waters of the southern tip of Isabela Island takes you where no cruise ship can go. Encounter Nazca boobies, frigate birds and blue-footed boobies above you, and graceful giant rays in the waters below.

Transition from the outer-coastal Pacific waters to the mystically calm sanctuary that is Los Túneles. Explore a maze of cactus laden black lava arches, and traverse lava bridges on foot. Meet the affable blue-footed boobie up close. (They may even do their mating dance while you watch in awe.) Glance down to the calm, transparent waters and observe giant sea turtles swimming nonchalantly. Follow the lead of the giant turtles as you snorkel the crystal clear lagoon of lava caves and mangroves looking for sleepy white-tipped reef sharks, schools of colorful fish and maybe even a sea horse, hiding in the tangle of mangroves. Later this afternoon arrive at the Puerto Villamil and opt for a sunset stroll on the beach.

 

Damon put together the perfect itinerary for our group of 7 - including grandparents. His knowledge of the region is superb, which is why he is able to create the ultimate trip for your family. From whitewater rafting in Peru to zip-lining in Ecuador, we truly had the trip of a lifetime! I wouldn't go with anyone else!

Our trip was fantastic and Micaela with Andean Discovery was great! Every detail was taken care of ahead of time. We just showed up and enjoyed the beauty of South America. I would use them again in a heartbeat.

Thanks to Andean our vacation was a wonderful experience for our entire family of 15 (8 adults and 7 grand kids aged 16 to 9).. The planning for the trip to the Galapagos was well researched; the hotels, guides and itinerary were spot on. They answered our many questions before we departed and there NO disappointments during the vacation. It was the most memorable trip our family has taken.

Traveling to the Galapagos Islands and Machu Picchu was a dream vacation for my wife. After much research we booked our trip through Andean Discovery. We are so glad we did. Everything went smoothly and our personal guides in Ecuador and Peru were wonderful. I would highly recommend Andean Discovery to anyone thinking of taking a similar trip.

We traveled with our family of 3 people. Andean did a wonderful job helping us select an itinerary that was able to accommodate our various ages. We had no glitches in a fairly complicated itinerary and everything came off as planned. Our local guide in Quito Johanna was terrific. I can't recommend Sacha Lodge more highly. Our experience in Galapagos on the Coral 1 was magical. While the crew of the Coral 1 could have been more charming and smiled on occasion they were helpful, the food was very good and the rooms were kept clean. I have no reservations in recommending Andean Discovery for your South American Holiday

My family toured the Galapagos Islands and Machu Picchu in Peru with Andean Discovery guides and reservations. We had a fabulous adventure! I recommend highly that "superior lodging" be chosen as an option for the best possible room accommodations. The marvelous comfort of the fine hotels Andean booked for us made all the difference.
