About this trip

This half day tour starting from the harbour of Puerto Ayora, takes you across the canal to Academy Bay, also called La Loberia, with a small boat. When arriving with the boat, you can observe blue-footed boobies and other birds resting on the cliffs. Then you will start a guided walk, past a viewing point of the canal from where with a bit of luck you can spot white tipped reef sharks resting. You continue along the path to “playa de los perros”, where you will find many marine iguanas resting on a sunny day. The huge cacti, the red colour of the rocks and the turquoise ocean make a perfect scenery for beautiful pictures. Afterwards the tour continues with a snorkelling excursion along the bay and a walk to Las Grietas.

This was an ok excursion. There was a lot of wasted time to accommodate the diver certification stop and subsequent diver only parts of trip. The snorkeling, once underway, paled in comparison to a previous simple beach snorkeling that was free. Lunch was so/so. Captain and cook/ diver guide were so nice, but other!?! Next time I’ll find and book in own with more discretion! Lot of boat time with little quality snorkeling and crowded as we picked up to extra FM’s on the dock!?!

I do not recommend this tour guide. My wife got too tired while swimming, but the guide was busy entertaining the pair of young chicas and did not notice my wife's difficulties until I got his attention.

Over priced and late! You charged $85, but it was only $45 in airport. Your service required overnight and was late. Airport service was while you wait. I do not recommend this service.

It was a nice trip until I got sick towards the end of the last 3 - 4 days. I'm not sure if it was the water or what I ate and whatever the fruits & vegetables that we ate were washed in.
