All passengers need to arrive at the agency at 9h00 in the morning of their tour, where we will outfit everyone with the snorkeling gear, including a short wetsuit, fins, and a mask and snorkel.
At 9h30, we will head to the Muelle Acuario I and Zarpe, where you will meet your naturalist guide and we will embark.
We will take the boat to Isla Lobos, where we will disembark at one end of the small island and hiking across to the other side. The walk is guided, and your naturalist will explain the geology of the island as well providing information on the finches, pelicans, blue footed boobies, frigatebirds, sea lions, marine iguanas and other wildlife that you will see.
After the walk, you’ll take a rest at Playa Ochoa, where you’ll have a little beach time. lunch will be served on the boat (fish, chicken, vegetarian and vegan options will be available, as well as cold drinks and snacks).
Then, it’s time for some snorkeling at the beach, where you’ll likely see some rays, sea lions, reef sharks, sea turtle, starfish, sea urchins, assorted fish species.
You’ll head back to the port around 12h30, with plenty of time to fit in another activity. Alternatively, you can elect to do this tour in the afternoon, leaving at 13h00 and returning at 17h30. The flexibility and duration of this tour makes it a good combination with a trip to the highlands and the Galapagos tortoise center, or as a light day with your own trip to one of the beaches around the town.
