* You will enjoy a day tour that combines various snorkeling opportunities follow with some beach time.
Depending on the day and the itinerary of the boat this day you can go neither to
Penguin Bay, or Dumb Islet
Penguin Bay, has a calm, clear, shallow water protected cove at the eastern side of the island. Dumb Islet, at Pinzon’s North Shore, has a steep wall, perfect for free diving. These waters are home to mantas and a large variety of pelagic fish
Both places are unique, between the sea life is posible to see and other of course the luck to have encounters with penguins. Young green sea turtles, several types of rays, Galapagos sharks or small groups of lazy reef sharks relaxing on the ocean floor, along with large tropical and sub-tropical reef fish such as the common and colorful parrot fish, marine iguanas feeding, with lucky also Galapagos Bat fish, sea lions, marine turtles, sea stars, Galapagos sharks
One last stop at La Fe or Las Palmas before a relaxing evening in Puerto Ayora, Santa Cruz Island. Both places have beautiful forests of Mangroves and Opuntia cacti growing near the picturesque shoreline.
On the way back we surround Nameless Rock, located to the west of Santa Cruz and offers us opportunities to see colonies of sea lions, marine iguanas, blue footed and masked boobies, frigate birds, pelicans and other sea birds. On occasions, large groups of Bottle Nose Dolphins or whales swim by the area so we will have to keep our eyes peeled!
Depending on the boat and the circumstances during the certain part of the navigation the crew will instruct you in the sustainable fishing style used here on the islands and skills permitting, we will all have a taste of a yellow fin tuna or wahoo, if you catch some this will be part of the lunch this day.
