Great guided tour. Saw blue footed boobies, penguins, herons, and marine iguanas before we got in the water. In the water saw myriad of fishes, seal, turtles. I was surprised to see so much this close to the island .

We loved this tour as you snorkel along the coast and see lots of wild marine animals. We snorkel with white tipped sharks, sea turtles, etc... If you travel with kids this is a must to do. Our kids were 3,4,7. The youngest one stayed...More

We paid about $45 per person. You can pay by credit but they charge extra, about 20%. The person who said there is an ATM is wrong - there is no bank or ATM on Isabela. Best to take lots of cash. The Tintoreras tour is... More
