Best snorkeling activity in the whole Galapagos. Shallow and very clear water. Lots of marine life. Amazing.

Probably my favorite thing to do so far on the Island of Isabela! You take a 45 minute boat trip to where you also encounter some large manta rays feeding on the surface. Once you hit the tunnels the captain expertly navigates around these formations...More

Los Tuneles were interesting to visit. The best part was the nearby snorkeling, however. Giant sea turtles, sea horses, white-tipped reef sharks and many other fish. Incredible experience.

Perfect experience! It is a maze and you get there by boat. So much to see, over the tunnels and under water. From giant turtles to blue footed boobies! MUST DO!

We did a day tour to Los Tuneles. The Tuneles cannot be reached by a big boat so only small boats can go. This means it's not the most comfortable trip out there. We payed $140 for our tour, which I thought was way overpriced...More

We took the dingle from our boat and sail to there! The way is amazing, thus you sail besides huge cliffs. The water color is wonderful and the view unbeliveble!

We had a tour operator called Pahoehoe pick us up at our hotel around 6am, and it was a half day tour. Excellent. While on Isabella, you should also consider the Sierra Negra hike if you're fit. It's a pretty strenuous 10... More
