This is an adventure that won’t cost you anything but snorkel rental and maybe $2.00 in transportation. Walk down a wooden path but be careful you don’t step on one of the many iguanas lounging in the sun. Usually there are a few big sea...More

Our tour group of 3 went snorkeling here late morning and it was fantastic! You have to walk over marine iguanas and sea lions on the boardwalk to the cove! Not super clear water like in Hawaii, but once I got used to it, I...More

the snorkeling time is limited to 1hr, but you swim with sea lions, turtles and rays and sharks. so way worth it. plus on the way there you have to "step over" all the sea lions and iguanas.

This place has a beautiful wooden path to get back to the cove for snorkling. There were a ton of iguanas on the path. Once you get to the snorkeling area, there are stairs with access to the water which was nice.
